Property Description

The Lombardy Parcels: An extremely rare opportunity to acquire three adjacent parcels in one of the most coveted neighborhoods in Pasadena. Anchored by the Guy Witter House, Co-Founder Dean Witter & Co, the parcels represent 1565, 1579 and 1585 Lombardy Rd. Known for its gated mansions and architectural properties, the Lombardy Parcels contain 2 significant architectural homes. Spanning 7,903 sf, the 6BD/8BA Guy Witter House was originally designed by Roland Coate in 1925. The antique brick veneer Cape Cod home has been completely rebuilt and redesigned while maintaining and adding additional internationally sourced architectural elements. Reclaimed, antique French beams were added when the ceilings were raised on the ground and upper floors. Chimneys were rebuilt by hand with reclaimed materials. The finest hardware & steel from Belgium was used throughout. New systems have been installed and the house reframed. Rebuilt w/comparable materials & craftsmanship as those used in the Roaring 20’s, the house is a modern-day example of how these magnificent homes were originally built. Situated on 1585 Lombardy is a 2-story Spanish Revival by Johnson, Kaufmann and Coate, built in 1923. Although each architect produced many significant works individually, this ”dream team” designed some of their most acclaimed during these collaborative years. Situated on the corner parcel, this 5BR/3BA home has the flexibility to be a principal residence or a secondary building on a large estate. Between these 2 architectural homes, 1579 is open space, ideal for: pool and tennis, gardens, or other congregating spaces. With 1.66 ac of flat, gated land, the Lombardy Parcels allow for complete personalization of the estate. In 1919, Pasadena approved the Arden Grove Subdivision, advertised as an exclusive subdivision with all underground wiring for electricity & telephones. The 1923 offering was sold-out by 1930. Not since, has the chance to purchase 3 adjacent parcels, concurrently, been available. A remarkable prospect to create a legacy property for generations, in one the best areas in Pasadena and greater Los Angeles.
