About 805 W. 16th Street

A most distinctive residence, The Whitney Estate was designed by Myron Hunt one of Southern California’s most prominent architects of the early 20th century. With designs of over 500 projects including the Rose Bowl, Pomona College's Little Bridges Auditorium, and the Huntington Library. In 1917 the original structure was a barn and bungalow when purchased by Olive and Alden Whitney, Myron Hunt convinced them not to tear down the barn, but instead to remodel it as a Tuscan farmhouse. The extraordinary home has two private double gated entrances, the South gate leads to an expansive motor court. A treehouse to the right is said to have held high level board meetings at one time. On the left, a small vineyard of 1912 Old Growth Zinfandel Vines. The East gate is just as impressive with motor court, loggia spanning most of the North side of the property, square foot gardening and two-car garage. With almost an acre of land framed by tall walls you are given a true sense of privacy and peace. A grand yet intimate farmhouse, offers a formal living room with Venetian windows, fireplace and French doors leading to the veranda. The dining room with built-in China cabinet and vintage elevator adjoins the gracious kitchen with beautiful Missouri Black Walnut cabinetry, Wolf Range, pantry, and scullery. A keeping room, converted from a rustic breezeway with the original summer kitchen and laundry complete the main level. A gorgeous staircase of White Pine leads to the primary suite with en-suite bathroom. Three secondary bedrooms, one with French doors opening to a terrace, the second with a Juliet balcony and fireplace, one that could be an office and second bathroom completes the upper level. Across from the main house is the charming guest house with full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom with laundry and veranda. Reminiscent of the Tuscan countryside the grounds are sprinkled with Olive trees, majestic Cypress, and private vineyard. A romantic landscape of gardens rich in flowers, plants and fruit trees all surround the magnificent, recently constructed, outdoor summer kitchen and patio. True to Tuscan attributes, it was built with traditional large columns, wood beamed ceilings, expansive inglenook fireplace, pizza oven, wine cabinets, vintage farmhouse sink and powder room. The present owners have lovingly maintained and improved the property with system upgrades including HVAC, solar panels, tankless water heater and more. Truly a timeless beauty.
