Set Sail Over Southern California in This Claremont Design

Glass Rooms

Set sail over Southern California! When you’re inside this one-of-a-kind home set high on a ridge in , you’ll feel as if you’re lounging on the lido deck.

“It really does feel like you’re on a grand cruise ship,” says listing agent Hwei-Chu Meng of Century 21.

On the market for the first time in 28 years and listed for $1,648,000, the 2-acre estate includes a 5,038-square-foot main house, a tennis court, and a gentleman’s farm. The home’s cutting-edge design was featured in a case study on the architectural use of light at Cal Poly Pomona’s prestigious architectural school.

The home features a triangular living room which comes to a point in a glass fireplace. At the other end of the room is a grand double staircase flanking the dining space.

Meng says the home will require some updates, but “it has unlimited potential. Bring your imagination, and see how far you can go with it.”

The triangular portion of the home was built in 1977 by local architect Larry Wood, and the rectangular structure was added in the 1990s. The home now has 3.5 baths and four bedrooms, including two master suites. One of the suites measures a massive 2,000 square feet, and features a sitting area with a plush, U-shaped sofa that was custom-made for the room. It is included in the sale.

The dining table by the grand staircase was also custom-made and is included in the sale.

Emus were once raised on the farm portion of the property, along with chickens, llamas, and other animals. The coops and the barns are still intact.

The grounds are so large that Meng suspects new owners will want to add a pool and a large deck.

“Someone who loves space and light and enjoys a project can really become the king or queen of these beautiful hills,” says Meng. “There never has been, and there never will be, another house like it.”
