Perched above the street like a beacon, shining its architectural grandeur throughout this historic neighborhood, it’s hard to miss the splendor of this Mission Revival masterpiece. Built in 1911 by renowned architect Seeley L. Pillar, known as the Fred H. Speich House. As you approach you may notice the beauty of the adobe walls and hand thrown stucco while meandering on the enormous wrap around porch. The Mission style front door opens to a music room and a spacious living room. A large fire place is the focal point and can also be seen in the ample sized dining room. The light in these rooms is glorious and creates a magical feeling as the sun passes throughout the day. The interior is filled with Old World Elegance and Craftsmanship of a bygone era, such as quarter sawn oak floors, leaded glass built-ins, and Dentil Moldings. The kitchen has been tastefully upgraded with solid cherry cabinets, flanked with Brazilian granite counters and Viking appliances. The full-size Basement includes a Billiards room, lounge area, and half bath. The four bedrooms on the second floor are all spacious with fantastic views, two have access to the second story wrap around balcony. The ballroom on the top floor (now converted to a library), has 360-degree views, from there you can step out to the roof top, designed to accommodate gardens and get-togethers. Situated in the prestigious Bankers Row of Mount Rubidoux Historic District. A once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of history.
