Stately country-style home in La Cañada Flintridge built in 1923 for the family of Standish L. Mitchell, a former CEO of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

As it happens, Sumner Hunt and Silas Burns designed the 5,492 square-foot home. They also designed the club’s recognizable headquarters in University Park—as well as the Southwest Museum. (Hunt also designed the original plans for the Bradbury Building.)

If the home looks familiar, perhaps you’ve seen it in one of its many film appearances. Additionally, the residence has played prominent roles in the original In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin, The Good German, and The House Bunny. (Interiors subbed in for the Playboy Mansion).

But the home has plenty to offer beyond pedigree and IMDB credits.

Furthermore, Containing six bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, the expansive interior features original hardwood floors, fireplaces, crown moldings, and even a few era-appropriate bathroom fixtures.

 


Listing agent Brett Furrey tells Curbed the owners meticulously preserved the home’s original character, bringing in FK Design Group’s Marla Felber and Virginia Robinson Garden’s Tim Lindsay to assist with the updates. As a result the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.

 


Especially relevant is the extremely beautiful space around the house.

Located on 2.4 acres, the gated home is accessed by a long, winding driveway and surrounded by a forested, park-like yard. The back yard includes several patios and balconies for admiring the scenery. Additionally, an elegant swimming pool adds to Old World restrained luxury.
