Property Description

The Cordelia Culbertson House was the last major project jointly undertaken by Charles & Henry Greene. A departure from their earlier bungalow projects, a Euro-Asian style interprets the California Mission influence w/ a lighter, more open feel while retaining all of the Arts & Crafts quality, detail & design. An open U-shaped floor plan showcases the only residence that Greene & Greene undertook without budget limitations or style directives from their clients. Today the home has been restored to pristine condition. The restoration was performed to maximize preservation of the original Greene & Greene design & materials. The enclosed courtyard is as designed by the Greenes w/ covered loggia, wisteria & rose arbors, Grueby-tiled walkways &
Pewabic tile fountain. The signature Greene & Greene wood paneling is nowhere to be found. Instead, the interior surfaces are lavishly detailed: sculptured plaster, fabric wall-coverings & exotic marble predominate. Likewise, the exterior has no shingle siding, but rather a smoother gunite finish w/ a roof done in dark-green tiles, intermixed w/ occasional red & lighter green pieces evocative of a Chinese palace. This final Greene & Greene structure, so unlike any of their prior work, is indeed a special masterpiece.
