Description

The gorgeous Melrose House was built in 1910 as the dream home of Richard and Mary Melrose. Melrose was a prominent figure to his community, state, and country in several roles: city attorney, newspaper publisher/editor, city councilman, AUWC board member, tax gauger, State Assemblyman, Presidential Elector, and Chairman of the Board of the State Normal School in Los Angeles (now UCLA). Melrose was appointed postmaster by President Chester A. Arthur, received the praise of President Theodore Roosevelt, and Melrose Street in Anaheim and Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles commemorate his name – the Melrose stories are numerous. Encompassing 3,600sqft, the elegant Melrose House has undergone extensive restoration including a complete foundation replacement, re-plumb, re-wire, and re-duct. All original features of the home have been thoughtfully preserved and restored, including hardwood flooring, windows, doors, paneling, and solid brass/crystal fixtures and hardware. The finest of details were thought out and executed in a stunning mix of Craftsman and distinctive English Tudor revival features and shapes. An exquisite porte cochere is decorated by 6 classical columns, original pendant, and original wicker porch swing. The steps leading from the porte cochere are made with salvaged bricks from the original foundation. A half-moon marble front porch with extensive eaves and corbels leads to the stately front door. Upon entry, the stunning Batchelder tile fireplace encased by large original leaded glass built-ins is a focal point amid the rich detail of original wood paneling. The dining room features a second grand Batchelder fireplace, coffered ceilings, and Venetian crystal chandelier. The original built-in leaded and stained glass buffet was imported from Germany and shipped through the Cape Horn. The massive Victorian gourmet chef’s kitchen highlights include custom antique cabinets, 48” imported Italian ILVE range, 8’ French drapery island, handcrafted Zellige backsplash, imported Italian flooring, cabinet lighting, and solid brass/crystal hardware and fixtures. The spacious downstairs bedroom is conveniently located by two bathrooms, laundry, kitchen, and separate entrance – perfect for multigenerational living. The beautifully paneled, grand main staircase and smaller, secondary staircase both lead to the three additional upstairs bedrooms. The expansive master suite features tons of natural light and serene views of mature maple trees and George Washington Park. The large walk-through dual closet leads to the luxurious master bathroom complete with classic marble, 10’ double shower, custom antique double sink vanity with hammered nickel vessels, and french doors. The massive private back yard boasts a large covered patio, all new fencing, veggie/herb garden, and a 1,500sqft orchard with 5 fruit trees. Rich in history, The Melrose House is on the National Register of Historic Places, key to the “Melrose-Backs Neighborhood,” and pending Mills-Act final approval.
