The palatial residence at 999 Rosalind Road, San Marino, originally belonged to Caroline Huntington Holladay and her descendants from 1918 to 1996. The mansion was designed and constructed in 1918 for the prominent Henry E Huntington family. Over the past 100 years, the Holladays and current owners meticulously improved and maintained this property for a life of luxury. The Holladay residence offers 10,458 sq ft of living space plus a substantial two-storied guest house, a Japanese inspired tea house, quarters with two on-suite bedrooms for security guards and a six car garage on a 2.3 acre lot. Behind the modern iron gate, a professionally landscaped front yard with fountains embraces this eloquent colonial revival residence. Greek columns accentuate the entrance to the main floor with the foyer, living room, family room, game room, formal dining room, wet-bars and kitchen. From the central entrance, the stairway leads you to the upper bedroom level. The master bedroom suite takes up the complete east wing with a large retreat area, private sitting-room, and all the amenities of a master suite. Four on-suite bedrooms and another bedroom with an adjacent full bath comprise the west wing of the upper level. All bathrooms on the bedroom level have heated floors. Every bedroom has its own fire place. The entertainment center on the subterranean level offers ideal space for all kinds of recreation activities and it includes: a movie theatre, a spa with sauna and steam, a massage-room, a barbershop, a large wine cellar, entrance to the outdoor spa and the gym. The laundry room and maids living quarters are also on this level. An elevator travels between all the floors. The enchanting gardens of 999 Rosalind are the envy of many large estate owners. The tea house is located next to the koi pond with a water fall. From here a short stroll through the beautifully planned rose gardens leads to a swimming pool with a water fall and steam features around. The guest house sits above the pool and was substantially redesigned by the current owners for their collection of oriental arts and crafts. The north/south facing tennis court was more recently constructed. 999 Rosalind, the former Holladay estate, is a rare find in prestigious San Marino. This secluded historic property offers its new owner all the modern conveniences for a comfortable life on a beautifully landscaped setting.
