As you pass through the gates and approach the home from the meandering drive, you recall an era of a day’s gone by. Behold elegance and stature as your eyes alight on this marvel of design by master architect Reginald Johnson. Rarely does one find a significant piece of architecture with substantial grounds and privacy encompassing large lawns and proud gardens. Reginald Johnson was arguably one of the most important architects of his time and became known for designing Italian Villa/ American Colonial combinations. Johnson came to prefer the Monterey Colonial style in his later years, regarding the collaboration of Mexican and American heritages as the most indigenous style for California.
Upon entering the home you will be taken by its subdued grace and sophistication. A well-appointed foyer beckons visitors to the abundant warmth of surrounding rooms. A formal, stately living room with large windows that offers beautiful views is distinctly propionate in size and scale. Beyond the living room, lies a distinguished wood paneled office accentuated by a fireplace and wet bar. The dining room exudes opulence with paneled walls, fireplace and large windows. The master bedroom suite commands breathtaking views over the property. There are 5 additional bedrooms, some with private balconies, offering comfort and exquisite views of the property.
The vast grounds have tranquil garden alcoves with fountains and sprawling lawns. A variety of trees grace this land, including a rare Chilean Palm Tree, Magnolia, Loquat, Orange, Lemon, Apricot, Peach, Fig and the praiseworthy namesake, Jacarandas.
“Las Jacarandas” is one of the finest estates offered for those who desire the elegance of a time honored home that with every year only becomes more reverent.
