A prime example of Altadena’s finest historical mansions, 1051 was built in 1915 for fashion designer Kate Duncan. Her first commissioned home was a 1906 Greene & Greene, now known as the Duncan-Irwin House. She later purchased a large tract from Col. George Green (patent medicine mogul and owner of the Green Hotel where her atelier was housed) and hired contractors Grable & Austin to build a large residence in the Prairie School style of her Midwest roots. The attributed architect is Louis du Puget Millar, masterful designer of over 70 residences and commercial buildings throughout California. Built on grand scale with many original features intact, this 5,372 sq. ft. home boasts a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired floor plan, with one room flowing into another, making it perfect for entertaining and living in style. The home is set back from the Drive on a raised 23,198 sq. ft. park-like corner lot with heritage oaks. Undergirded with massive Redwood beams and generously insulated, 1051 was restored to its authentic Prairie Style color palette and architectural details by its current owners. Come see for yourself that good design is timeless!
