From 1932 to 1943, this stunning early California Hacienda-style estate was owned by Herbert Hoover, Jr., son of the 31st president of the United States. President and Mrs. Hoover visited often and the home was known as "The Winter White House". It was originally built in 1928 by local businessman, Frank Picard, and the estate included almost 6 acres of land. In 1932, when the Hoovers moved in, they added a children's wing. Word has it that the playroom, which is accessed by a slide, was designed by family friend, A. A. Milne, the author of "Winnie the Pooh". The current owner has lovingly maintained the property, making necessary improvements and upgrades while respecting the architectural integrity of the building and its grounds. The main residence will take your breath away with its expansive rooms, soaring open-beamed cathedral ceilings, updated kitchen with original "ice box", four fireplaces, wood-paneled library, huge formal dining room, and so much more. In addition, there is a full guest house with living room, kitchen, bedroom, bath, office, laundry room and screened in porch. Spectacular grounds with meandering brick pathways, pool, spa and pool house, and several outdoor dining areas. This stately property and its colorful link with history reflects the graceful architecture of an earlier era. This is truly one of Sierra Madre's finest trophies.
