Single Family Homes
This vintage turn-of-the-last-century gated bungalow estate has been thoughtfully expanded and offers the charm and character of a period home yet has been updated and outfitted with an amazing array of modern features. Sited on a sizable 2 parcel flat lot, this 5-bedroom 5-bath multi-level home offers a true chef’s kitchen which opens to the living and dining rooms, a main level primary suite, 4 additional bedrooms, an office, a gym, and a significant amount of storage. The quality and care of the improvements is evident by the high-quality materials and precise craftsmanship found in every area of this immaculate property. The detached 2-car garage fronts a second self-contained residence, which is a perfect guest casita or supplemental rental income opportunity. The garage interior features epoxy flooring and pull-down access to attic storage. The parking court has automatic gates and can park 4 additional cars off-street. Custom features enhance the impressive curb appeal, including artisan stonework, lighting, picket fencing, mature trees and manicured, drought-tolerant gardens with meandering stone and concrete pathways. True to La Verne’s roots as a citrus community, the grounds contain a curated variety of citrus and fruit-bearing trees. Drip irrigation on commercial valves operate throughout the grounds, including two raised vegetable beds. Lifestyle enhancements include numerous security and smart features throughout, a saline pool and spa serviced by solar panels, an arbor covered outdoor kitchen, flat grassy lawn, and an impressive free-standing arroyo stone fireplace. Multiple patios, terraces and covered porches offer an array of seating and entertaining areas. A freestanding workshop provides additional practical uses. La Verne retains a small-town charm unique to Southern California. It is characterized by historic homes along tree-lined streets, quaint shops and highly rated schools that are the envy of the San Gabriel Valley.
