The Prindle house, a masterpiece designed by renowned architect, George Washington Smith, was lovingly built & cherished by one family since 1926. This iconic estate is located a block from the prestigious Langham Hotel. Resplendent in detail & character, Smith created an Andalusian home reminiscent of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, with exquisite Moorish & Spanish architectural elements elaborately displayed within the estate’s monumental walls. A baronial foyer with 25′ tall carved wood ceilings & sweeping staircase, a grand living room, cozy library & an elegant dining room, offer a first glimpse of the intricate interior. French doors open to a romantic central courtyard with star fountain & arched loggia, perfect for entertaining & relaxation. 7 spacious bedrooms, 3 fireplaces, CA, copper plumbing, updated electrical, an elevator & a newly-remodeled chauffeur’s quarters are just some of the unique amenities. Tall carved wood doors from Fez, Morocco, lead to an enchanting walled garden with grassy lawn, mature trees & a reflecting pool with water jets. This magical setting complements the mystique and grandeur of Smith’s overall design. The Prindle House embodies the splendor of a bygone era.
