TRADE IN OK! ABSOLUTELY THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER HISTORICAL LANDMARK TUCKED IN THE HILLS OF GLENDORA, DESIGNED AS A REPLICA OF MISSION SAN MIGUEL IN SAN LUIS OBISPO. THE CHARM OF YESTERDAY BLENDS SEAMLESSLY WITH THE CONVENIENCES AND COMFORTS OF TODAY WHILE KEEPING THE MANSION'S UNIQUE HISTORIC ELEMENTS IN PLACE. THIS PROPERTY HAS WAY MORE AMENITIES AND QUALITIES THAN ANY OF THE MUCH SMALLER HOMES DOWN BELOW THAT ARE SELLING BETWEEN $1.5 - $2.0 MILLION WITH LOT SIZES THAT ARE BARELY SCRATCHING 1/4 ACRE. THIS 5.88 ACRE PRIVATELY GATED BUILDABLE ESTATE COULD POSSIBLY BE SUBDIVIDED TO ACCOMMODATE 5 LARGE MANSIONS WITH INFINITE VIEWS THAT COULD FETCH IN EXCESS OF $3 MILLION. BUT ALONE IT'S AN IMPECCABLE TURN OF THE CENTURY MANSION WITH 2-FT WALLS BARELY REQUIRING ANY AIR-CONDITIONING. THE SUPREME GATED PRIVACY OF THIS MANSION REMAINS FOR MANY YEARS THE ENVY OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD DOWN BELOW THAT JUST ONE LOOK OF THIS PROPERTY WOULD CAPTIVATE THE SERIOUS BUYER/INVESTOR THAT IS LOOKING FOR A LASTING HOME FOR THEIR FAMILY WITH A PIECE OF MIND THAT THEY ARE PUTTING THEIR MONEY ON A SOLID INVESTMENT THAT WOULD CERTAINLY SURVIVE THE TEST OF TIME. FEATURES A LARGE BALL ROOM AND DINING ROOM FOR A PRESIDENTIAL ESTATE DINNER, MASTER BEDROOM WITH ITS OWN SAUNA, PRIVATE RETREAT AND MAN-CAVE WINE CELLAR. The BALLROOM has 30-ft high ceilings with artistic frescoes painted by 2 European artists. A separate FUNCTION ROOM seats 30+ people served by a COMMERCIAL SIZED KITCHEN, 6-burner STOVE, GRANITE.

    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.
