San Marino Home Tour

Welcome, dear bloggers, to the Lace and Ivy Cottage where we will be participating in Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer.

Today, I'll be taking you on a tour of beautiful San Marino, California where the neighborhoods ooze with character and charm. Come along, it'll be fun!

This first home is a stately one, probably built in the 30's. Aren't those bonzais stunning?

This looks more like a home on the east coast.

This one looks more French, n'est-ce pas?

We just don't see this variety of architecture on modern built homes.


A miniature Trevi Fountain?



I love the twisted limbs of these trees.

Look how manicure this lawn is. Croquet anyone?

This home looks like it belongs in North Carolina. It's rare to see stately brick homes in SoCal.


Very Californian, very Mediterranean.



This one reminds me the South.




I love dormers, though these look a little off scale.

I bet this cottage is full of charm inside.

Just a reminder of where you're at.

I hope you enjoyed the home tour of beautiful San Marino, California. I have so much more to show you of this area in the weeks to come, so please stop by again. Happy Outdoor Wednesday!


Till Next Time,

Hi Lorna, I always admire these houses every time we visit the Huntington Library. Did you stop by the Huntington Library?

I also love the transformation of your kitchen, very artistic and cool paint!

Lorna… as an admirer of architecture, I really enjoyed your house tour. I especially liked the “cottage” house and the “n'est-ce pas” French home. Both are inviting without be imposing.
