Photos: Pasadena French Chateau Selling For $7.6 Million
Perhaps this palatial Pasadena estate strikes your fancy. It could be yours for only $7.6 million.
Built in 1930 and designed by architects Sylvanus Marston and Edgar Maybury, this 8-bed, 7.25-bath home sits on three acres. According to the listing, it's a "gated French Chateau inspired estate nestled in a setting with commanding views of the Arroyo Seco, Annandale Golf Course and downtown Los Angeles." It was built at the same time and with the same materials and workers as St. Andrews Church, also in Pasadena, and has a stone BBQ house out back.
Maybury and Marston were partners in the Pasadena-based architecture firm Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury. They designed the Vista del Arroyo Hotel and Bungalows and the Grace Nicholson Building that houses the USC Pacific Asia Museum, as well as several homes in the Pasadena area.
