Stratford Manor – the RARE crown jewel of La-Canada Flintridge! Sited majestically on 4 acres. One enters through impressive wrought iron gates up a 14,000 square foot hand-cut Austrian cobblestone driveway alongside expansive fields of grass and gardens to the massive circular motor court. Stratford Manor is a magnificent and completely renovated French Normandy Estate (approximately 12,000 square feet) with a breathtaking view of the San Gabriel Mountain Range. The perfect center hall floor plan features a gracious 2-story entry with winding staircase, a library /office, oversized dining room which overlooks massive lawns, an exquisite enormous kitchen and great room with every possible convenience and commercial appliance available. Hidden below the house, lies a handcrafted and wood-sculptured 1200-bottle wine cellar and tasting room. All major rooms open to the glorious yard where one will find the fabulous outdoor family/screening room, which overlooks the custom pool with infinity edge and on into the endless forest. Noted designer, Robin Dorman, created the perfect entertaining home with 7 en-suite bedrooms, including the lavish master suite with huge walk-in closets and decadent marble baths. Complementing the living quarters is a grand upstairs gymnasium, currently utilized as the main office (approximately 800 square feet), with pitched ceilings and its own bath. Located in the principal residence is a generous four-car polished tiled-garage with Italian cabinets and is neighbored by a separate two car garage. At the gate house, upon entry, is a man cave car barn with auto lift, built-in piped compressed air plus enough room for five cars and two motorcycles; assuring room for automotive accessories appropriate for this estate. The secluded grounds are bounded by streets on 3 sides to ensure ultimate privacy. With guard-gating stone pillars and wrought iron along the entire perimeter, the estate ensures absolute security and projects exclusivity. Through endless decomposed granite trails amid hundred year-old live oaks with three bridges over a blue line stream that flows year-round, the expansive park-like backyard offers a demitasse Descanso Gardens shared with no one. It is ideal to maintain a tennis court, a secret escape, or whatever your heart desires. Two legal lots afford opportunity for a second estate and enhances the upside potential. A masterpiece family and entertaining home offered once in a generation; once in this city.
