TRADE IN OK!! Enjoy the serenity of a one of a kind expansive estate in the north Glendora mountains on a choice 5.88 ACRES prime land WITH PANORAMIC VIEW & your OWN GATE. It's surrounded down below by postage stamp properties selling in excess of $2 Million. This rare estate known as The Singer Mansion (after the heirs of the Singer Sewing machine) can have, according to the City, 5 HORSES by permit!!! Every inch of this mansion has been rehabbed and restored as much as possible to its old charm and beauty - so much so that the hard-wood floor in the grand ball room is primed for dancing or partying while enjoying the glittering lights as far away as Los Angeles and CATALINA ISLANDS. The BALLROOM features 30-foot high ceilings with artistic frescoes painted by 2 European artists and floor to ceiling . The entirely remodeled master suite has its own underground WINE CELLAR and tasting room, master retreat and SAUNA. A separate FUNCTION ROOM seats a formal dinner of 24 people + an adjoining breakfast room seating for 6 people all served by a COMMERCIAL KITCHEN WITH 6-burner STOVE and sturdy stainless steel counters and cabinets. A HEATED POOL that affords 270 DEGREES VIEW of the valley below while the eastern most end of the estate features the TENNIS and Basketball court. The estate is surrounded by paved driveways which would be quite a challenge for the healthy runner to traverse even on a cool winter morning. SAVE BY MILLER ACT $30,000+/YR PROPERTY TAXES!

    Agent submission.

    There are more photos on any of the listing sites, linked up top, although more furniture photos than extra house photos.

    The ceiling, the views, one could live here and have your own fort like hideaway.

    So much of it feels like one of the California missions. I love it. Yes, I could be very happy here.

    Although you have to pay 30k in property taxes. Amazes me what Ny, NJ, and some other states pay for taxes.

    It is “Mills Act”-not “Miller Act” as stated in the listing. If it is a Mills Act property-it should not be $30,000. here is an article from 2014:
    The out-of-control Colby Fire in the San Gabriel Valley foothill community of Glendora has burned more than 1,700 acres of the foothills (sending smoke wafting all the way to Manhattan Beach), including some of the 5.7 acres that are home to one of two Singer Mansions. The guesthouses and garage have reportedly been destroyed. The Singer sewing machine family clearly liked Glendora, because there are two houses there that bear their name: the Wallace Neff-designed, Georgian-style Singer Mansion, and the other Singer Mansion, also called the Kregolo Estate, which was built in 1924 as a replica of the Mission San Miguel in San Luis Obispo. According to an old listing, the historic 14-bedroom, 12-bathroom house also has “a large ball room with cathedral ceilings adorned with frescoes painted in the 1920’s by two European artists – which alone was appraised by art collectors for over $400,000.” Rooms in the house were up for rent on Craigslist for a time, which is how a local news anchor (audio) came to live in one. He says that the house also had some very cool features, like a hidden Prohibition-era wine cellar and a secret tunnel leading to a mansion across the street. The fire isn’t contained yet, but the most recent reports continue to indicate that the house is still mostly intact.

    The furnishings/decor does make one wonder who the heck has been living there! Amazing property. The painted ceilings are crazy wonderful.

    They had me at “your OWN GATE.” I mean, who doesn’t want their own gate? Those painted ceilings and beams are even more of a draw, though. I have never seen anything like them.

    But I’m super disappointed to see that the bathrooms have been redone in a sterile modern style.

    I was really disappointed in the bathrooms as well. I have come to love the art-deco style bathrooms in the Spanish homes of this time period. I absolutely love those painted ceilings and beams! The one really sad detail is the empty swimming pool~I know that there is a drought, but it is really sad.
