Welcome to the Twycross House! This architecturally significant Craftsman Bungalow inspired the creation of a national magazine in 1990 known as American Bungalow. The magazine also helped create a movement nationwide that popularized 'Bungalow' homes which are prevalent in southern California. We believe there have only been two owners of this noteworthy property since it was built in 1915. It's easy to imagine yourself sitting on the cozy front porch beneath a beaded ceiling with a cold lemonade and a good book. The living and dining rooms are rich in Craftsman architecture with Douglas fir batten & board walls and doors, a Batchelder fireplace which was improved by adding some reproduction tiles, built-in hutches & China cabinets, plate rails, and original wood flooring. The huge R3 lot consists of 3 separate parcels totaling 18,015 square feet (130 frontage X 139 deep). This property is on the Historic Register - please check with the city regarding expanding or adding additional units. Preliminary discussions with the Sierra Madre Planning staff explained that if the 3 lots were combined into one there is a possibility to build up to 6 units with a total square footage of 11,100 sf. This property awaits a new steward who can appreciate its architectural style, its rich history and restore it to its glory days!
