Thanks to our clients, we had the opportunity to tour this spectacular French chateau residence designed by Pasadena firm, Marston & Maybury and commissioned by J.J. McCarthy in 1929.  The residence was completed in 1930 and despite being constructed during the Great Depression, the cost to build was $117,990 which was extremely high during that time.  Today, according to the assessor's records, it boast 7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms with 9,861 sq.ft. of living space and sits on a grand lot of 2.59 acres.

When was the last time you saw one of these?

Trash incinerators?

With your own safe!

How about a dumbwaiter?

Prohibition days kept this goldmine in a hidden safe room

Where the witches brew..
