From the Agent: "Known as the John Show Ranch Estate, this Spanish Colonial Revival home is one of the most significant historic structures in all of the San Fernando Valley. At the time of construction, the Show Ranch encompassed over 350 acres of citrus and walnut trees. Today, the Alimidor home is privately situated high above a surrounding development of Charles Du Bois midcentury homes and in pristine condition thanks to a multidecade, multimillion-dollar restoration by the current owners in collaboration with historic architects and contractors. An ascending driveway leads to the grand arched exterior and expansive wraparound entry porch overlooking beautiful gardens and mature trees. The grand and soaring interior entrance sets a tone of distinction with artisan craftsmanship such as an oversized carved mahogany door, forged ironwork, and original Gladding McBean floors."
