Carefully preserved La Cañada home asking $5.85M appeared in ‘House Bunny’
Built in 1923, it has made a number of film appearances
This article was originally published on Curbed LA
632 BERKSHIRE AVENUE, LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE 91011
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).
Listed by: Brett Furrey & Esther Tan CalBRE# 01154312 & 00802807
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.
With the changing season comes new, delicious fruits and vegetables at your local farmers’ market, the best place to pick up the freshest fruit available straight from the source. Along with providing important support for your community, you also get to enjoy fresh produce at the peak of it’s deliciousness. These markets are also more environmentally friendly, since the food is local, and typically hormone and pesticide-free.
Your farmers are also great resource to learn where you food comes from and to meet the people who feed you. Many vendors have wonderful recipes and cooking tips specific to the foods they are selling, and are more than happy to share them with you.
