Picture this: 13,290 Sq feet of art you can live in. With award winning restoration, views to the ocean, a pool, and a spa, Artemesia is an architectural dream. Not to mention, a build-able lot adds bonus in this once-in-a-lifetime investment.The landscape architect Alexandre Aurèle Vermeulen (1885–1983) incorporated the existing rolling terrain of the 12-acre site into his garden design. He created a cascading stream that originated under the terrace bridge. Then, this stream ran over a natural course of fieldstones, down the hillside to a fishpond above the pump station. Vermeulen’s plan provided for a Japanese garden set into the canyon, and a deer park. Frederick Engstrum sold Artemesia before he died. Although the lower portions of the property are subdivided, the house and the land down to the pump house remain as one property.
These are beautiful, classic proportions with spacious, elegant rooms. Whether it’s dinner for two or a fundraiser for 500, it’s the perfect home for entertaining. Gaze at this luxurious master suite with its own 1,200 square foot sitting room. The Green Bathroom and its Roman tub, just right for a leisurely soak. It’s the perfect place to get away from it all.
Imagine Unobstructed views across the city and straight out to the Pacific Ocean. Perched on a canyon hilltop, the site was carefully selected from the original 17-acre expanse for its amazing views across the entire city. The nighttime view is perhaps even more spectacular.The detached carriage house contains a private one-bedroom apartment/studio. And of course it has a garage, but a nice bonus is a sunny rooftop entertaining deck.
Be Part of History…
The 1913 pipe organ, built by Murray Harris, is one of the nation’s most important organ builders. Harris built the largest organ in the world for the St. Louis Exhibition. And so, the Artemesia organ is the largest remaining example of Harris’s work.
Although not considering its histroical significance, the current value of the organ is an estimated 1.1 million dollars.
