A sumptuous estate circa 1919 idyllically set on Clarendon Crescent elevates indoor-outdoor living. Designed by noted architect John J. Donovan for his own family, it showcases extravagantly proportioned and woodwork-embellished interiors, including formal living, dining, family rooms, a sitting room-office, and atrium. Amid well-preserved grandeur, a contemporary connoisseurs’ dine-in kitchen plus other updates intermix. Nearly all open to terra-cotta terraces and level quarter-acre-plus grounds. Five second-floor bedrooms served by three bathrooms encircle a gathering-place family room extending to an outdoor lounge. Beyond the main house, with a garden outlook is a detached cottage with full bath and kitchen for a separate dwelling or retreat-like studio. Please Google John J. Donovan to see his many contributions in architecture from the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center and City Hall in Oakland to St. Mary's College in Moraga, CA.
