2014 Pasadena Showcase House of Design

This year, Showcase House celebrates its 50th anniversary with a distinguished 1915 English Arts & Crafts style home, designed by noted architect Stiles O. Clements, who served on the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission and originated the Los Angeles trees-in-the-street program. Clements was the architect for the Adamson House in Malibu, Wiltern Theater in mid-Wilshire Los Angeles, El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles, and the Beverly Hills High School swim-gym, featured in the film It’s a Wonderful Life. He also assisted Julia H. Morgan on the design of William Randolph Hearst’s San Simeon.

This year’s Showcase House, known as the Flint House, was originally built for Robert Philip Flint and his wife Margaret Gray Flint. Mr. Flint graduated from Yale University and was a prominent mining engineer, and brother to Frank P. Flint who developed Flintridge which is part of La Canada, CA. Another notable owner was Philip Chandler, the son of Harry Chandler, publisher of the Los Angeles Times. In 1915, the 8,200 square-foot house featured 17 rooms and was built at a cost of ,000. Today, the house features seven bedrooms, including a nursery, a nanny’s room and a traveler’s suite, ten baths, five fireplaces, a media room, oak floors, redwood wall paneling, and floor to ceiling leaded glass windows. The 3.5 acre wooded grounds feature 300 trees, a lily pond, river-rock artesian spring house, a variety of lovely gardens, a pool and dressing rooms with fire pit, a greenhouse, a gardener’s potting shed and an outdoor kitchen. In addition, there is a chauffeur’s suite complete with sitting area and kitchenette located above the carriage house.

The masses of water seem to breakinto fleecy columns and sheets of glistening foam as they descend ;but they nevertheless strike the surface of the pool below with a con-cussion so heavy that they are forced upwards in fountains of sprayand clouds of mist which wash the sides of the canon, nourishing arank growth of mosses and algae of every grade of green, ochre,orange, saffron, red, scarlet, and brown. Mr. Gannett speaks as follows of the height of the falls : — My measurement of the Lower Fall was not as simple in method,and allows more room for error than in the case of the Upper Fall.I found a point by means of the clinometer on the eastern wall ofthe canon, and very near the fall, at the same level as its top.Thence I stretched the line down the canon wall to the level of the 64 MARVELS OF THE NEW WEST, foot of the fall, reaching it at a point so close that we received athorough drenching from the spray.

Most of the other measure-ments are barometric. Such was that of Captain Jones, who gave aheight of 328.7 feet. We are able to furnish a view of the Grand Canon of the Yellow-stone where the waters of the Great Fall tumble into it.
