About 339 S Mills Avenue

Unique Character Home in Claremont’s Historic “Russian Village.” Originally completed circa 1938, and featured on the 1993 Claremont Heritage Home Tour, this house is true to the style that this small enclave is known for. The exterior walls are constructed of native fieldstone sourced from the citrus groves of north Claremont. The original construction incorporates a variety of reclaimed materials, giving this house and the neighborhood a very special history and persona. The driveway leads past the drought tolerant front yard to the covered front porch. The beautifully weathered, rustic wood front door creates a striking impression. Just inside is the living room, with hardwood floors and high vaulted ceilings featuring original exposed hand-hewn wood beams and pine shiplap boards. The original stone fireplace has a tile hearth and multiple heat vents. Formal dining room currently furnished as a family room with lots of natural light. The kitchen is very spacious with Forbo natural linoleum flooring, and room for a table or future modifications. The main house has 3 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, with the main bathroom recently remodeled including attractive tile from Heath Ceramics in Los Angeles. The floor furnace was replaced in recent years and is fully functional. The two car garage was converted by a previous owner in the 1960’s and is now a guest studio with a kitchenette and ¾ bathroom. The backyard is a peaceful setting with covered areas, built in storage, and plenty of room for improvements or re-imagination. This property is a very special piece of Claremont history, conveniently located near the Claremont Colleges and the Claremont Village.
