The elegant and timeless Holstein House has been featured in Architectural Digest and was designed by renowned Los Angeles architect George M. Holstein for his family. Award winning Landscape Architect Dudley Trudgett took full advantage of the large, nearly three-quarters of an acre wooded site to create a soft, forested setting for the classic pool, mature fruit trees, and gardens. Naturally bright and private, this La Mesa Drive corner property meets you with the grandeur of a flowering Great Lawn opposite a breezy full facade Spanish balcony to reveal French, Spanish, and English architectural influences throughout. The main floor Great Room and Library (with wood-burning fireplaces) open up to the sounds of fountains and sheltered outdoor spaces and provide a harmonious balance of light and shade throughout the day. Updated kitchen with fireplace and modern features make for a stately yet comfortable family home. The south parterre consists of meditative topiary hedges among organic cutting and rose gardens. A detached Guest House by the pool and gardens provides a serene and private retreat for family and friends in this iconic Monterey Colonial Revival home.
