The Duncan-Irwin House, 1906. A jewel in the crown of the Crown City, this seminal Craftsman masterwork by Charles and Henry Greene exemplifies the architectural styling of the early California Arts and Crafts movement in the prestigious Park Place neighborhood.
This home ultimately paved the way for the Greenes’ signature style, which is evident in the Gamble house and other notable hallmark homes preserved throughout Pasadena. Sited on one of the premium locations available at the turn of the last century, the house sits on a flat lot at the Arroyo’s edge, offering sweeping mountain and canyon views and blends seamlessly with its natural surroundings.
This singularly unique home resonates with authenticity and provides oversized entertaining spaces, terraces, decks and other features that cannot be replicated. The Duncan-Irwin House offers a flexible configuration of 8 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms between the main residence, 3-car garage, pool and separate upper level guest house.
It is registered on the National Register of Historic Places and benefits from its inclusion on the Mills Act-providing an offset of the tax basis for preservation of select historic attributes.
