:: The Iven Fon Rousey Residence :: 1934 :: Located in Historic View Park, the Fon Rousey house has undergone a masterful 7-year restoration by the current owner, only the 3rd. Iven Fon Rousey was a local builder with ties to many higher end View Park homes. For the Fon Rousey residence, the choice to exercise his personal spin on the highly desirable Steinkamp style builds at the time is evident. The exterior showcases detailed porte-cochere plaster work, wonderfully complimented by a paved front entry surrounded by thoughtful drought tolerant landscape design. Inside, original stenciled ceiling beams overlook the grand living room that has a beautiful arched picture window and original molten glazed fireplace tiles. Custom quarter sawn white oak cabinets, soapstone counters, a copper sink, reclaimed plank floors and coved ceiling are the hallmarks of the light flooded kitchen. Original details include deco chandeliers, restored sconces, wooden floors & windows, bathroom tiles, stained built-ins and patina laced mirrors. The breakfast nook boasts a texture comb plaster ceiling and reclaimed support beams. Updated systems include central heat & AC, new waste-lines, electrical panel, newer roof, copper gutters & copper piping. View Park is one of the largest National Register historic district in California. The neighborhood showcases a harmonious mix of classic architectural styles and high quality construction, and benefits from an immense amount of neighborhood pride. 3479 Westmount is a contributor to the View Park historic district.
