Nestled in the heart of Claremont Village, known for historic homes, is a gorgeous Craftsman Estate. 1247 College Avenue was constructed in 1919 by C.C. Johnson for L.T. Gillette, then President of the Savings Bank of Pomona. The current owners beautifully restored and expanded the home in 2017, with thoughtful consideration to preserve and enhance the vintage character. Period appropriate details are evident from the wainscoted walls, box beamed ceilings, crown moldings, restored original front door, ¼ sawn white oak hardwood flooring, light fixtures, chandeliers to the smallest detail of faceplates and switches. A quintessential Craftsman exterior of horizontal lines, low-pitched gable roof extended eaves, inviting covered porch, natural stone and porte cochere. The grand formal living room features an original Batchelder tile fireplace, custom cabinetry and large picture window. Adjacent to the living room is the formal dining room with bay window and elegant chandelier. A vintage inspired kitchen offers Viking appliances, Carrera Marble counters and breakfast room with built-in hutch. Adjoining the kitchen and family room is a true mudroom with ample storage and direct access to the yard. The impressive family room with artisan quality craftsmanship has a period fireplace, expansive wall of windows and French doors. A main floor guest bedroom, also well-suited for a home office, offers a lovely en suite bath with clawfoot tub, shower and double vanity. An additional powder room with intricate mosaic tile completes the main level. Upstairs, the primary suite is a private sanctuary with appropriately placed windows allowing for treetop views. Features include a fireplace, bay window seat and luxurious bath with oversized soaking tub, shower, dual vanities and walk-in closet. Additionally, there are two nicely sized secondary bedrooms, a full bath and separate laundry room. The attention to detail continues outdoors with several settings for relaxation, entertainment and gatherings. From the sunny pool and spa with lounge area to the outdoor kitchen, spacious flagstone patio for dining and the separate shade garden retreat with conversation area. All set amongst an expansive over 11,000 square foot lot with a picturesque setting of rose gardens, mature trees and foliage. The oversized, detached two-car garage is perfect for a gym, extra lounge area and is pre-wired for an electric vehicle. This home pays tribute to the classic Claremont lifestyle.
