The FE Cooney House: A single-level Mid-century modern home, on a large lot, in the Huntington Library District, north of Monterey Road.¬ Central to most of San Marino's amenities, the Huntington Library District in one the most sought-after neighborhoods; a few blocks from Huntington and Valentine Schools, the Crowell Public Library and Lacy Park. Wide, well lighted streets with sidewalks bordering stately homes characterize the neighborhood.

Built in 1947, as part of the San Marino – Patton Estates subdivision, the parcel was chosen by Patton Estates' builder, FE Cooney, President of C&M Homes, as his personal residence. Starting from the parcel's location the very top of the Patton Estates, directly across of the Huntington Library, the FE Cooney House distinguishes itself in every aspect. True to MCM, the home's open public spaces are ennobled by their high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The natural world is drawn inside through the multi-paned, seamless glass wall in the living room and large glass panels in the family room. Covered rear patio supplements this natural harmony. Design forward, FE Cooney showcased the best available at the time: red oak w/walnut inlaid hardwood floors, an artisanal handcrafted stacked stone fireplace in family room, and built-in vanity station and cabinets are snapshots of the MCM era.

Perfect for entertaining, the expansive rear yard features: large rear patio, rectangular pool w/spa, pool house with sliding glass doors and kitchenette, changing rooms and detached 3-car garage w/drive on Euston Rd. Fully gated, and located in one of the quietest locations, the exterior space allows for four seasons use.

Being single level, it has the versatility to be a step down, starter, next chapter or dream home in a city that not only offers elite schools and facilities, but also has dedicated fire and police departments allowing for response times in the 90% for Los Angeles County. An exciting opportunity to become part of the welcoming San Marino community.
