The year was 1887 when two fierce women, Anna Howard Shaw and Cora Pond Pope who became leaders in the National Suffragist Movement,made their way from the chill of Boston to the golden hills of southern California, making this robust Colonial Revival their home.
If these walls could talk they would tell of clandestine meetings and a “secret society” of young women where plans were laid out for our future. This home that is so rich in history, rich in life is ready to be turned over to its next custodian. Someone who will appreciate not only its significance in a very important moment in time, but will be passionate about its sun-drenched rooms. Will be gaga over its generous space and tall ceilings. Will fawn for the original wide-planked Doug Fir floors. Will be obsessed with nooks to write one’s next-great novel, while Debussy plays throughout.
Views from every room … this special home is ready for its next big love. Who knows? Maybe it’s your turn to make some history of your own here?
