    Greene & Greene home for sale in Monrovia, CA

    I have no idea what the price is, but I did buy an extra Lotto ticket, just in case.

    This is soooooooo gorgeous!

    Wow! There some great inspiration there. I've got one room I'd like to just make look a 'little' more like that...

    I'm on my iPhone right now, so I can't see the pics on the linked site, but Zillow.com says the listed price is about $1.5 million.

    There are a number of cool Craftsman houses in that area.

    OK, I was able to get to the pics through Zillow. I agree it's beautiful. A bargain at the asking price OMHO.

    It is very nice and it is historic with the age and all but the only complaint I would have with it are the ceiling heights upstairs. I love the ceilings down but it looks a bit squashed upstairs. Beautiuful with all the windows and hard wood floors. I wonder how much wax and window cleaner you would have to use on a weekly basis to keep them looking like that? I remember buffing and waxing the wood floors in our old house and boy was that a job.

    Seems to me if you can afford the house you can afford to pay someone to keep it clean. Time to buy a back-up lotto ticket.

    Ca. 1909, I guessed about 1940. Very California. I'd hate to have to heat that place somewhere 'up nawth'. I wear hearing aids (sometimes ) and could almost feel the noise echoing off the bare floors, windows and walls. First thing I would do would be to install carpeting almost everywhere. No window treatments. Curious. Is that why the bed in the master bedroom is facing the 'wrong' way.
    Is the wine in the wine cellar included? If it is, I'll buy.
