Historic charm meets modern sophistication at this award-winning estate. Set on a prime double lot, moments from Claremont Colleges and downtown village, The Rankin House c. 1923 was lovingly transformed to preserve its historic character and provide adaptability for the future. Vintage herringbone floors, oak panels and molding, stained glass, period lighting and original windows and doors enhance the interior, masterfully designed by Su Bacon, while the additions of solar and Control 4 technology usher in the modern era.
