The Mrs James Skinner House, Wallace Neff, FAIAAcclaimed as one of Wallace Neffs finest works, The Mrs James Skinner House is located on a flat 1.8 ac parcel in San Marinos prime Estates Area. Built in 1929 for a Chicago widow whos husband had been a founder of Sears Roebuck, and later owned by JB Van Nuys, this fully gated palatial estate is a prime example of the Italian Period Revival style. Overscaled and grand in design, the 6 BR/9BA house proclaims all the splendor and prominence of the pre-depression Golden Age of architecture. Hand painted ceilings, marble floors, antique Baccarat crystal chandeliers, elaborate wrought iron balconies and banisters and a hand carved stone fountain accentuate the style and grace of the estate.
