Peace on Earth... Your own private compound on over 1/2 acre of gated property with flower gardens, mature trees, rustic stone and wrought iron fences, fountains and views, in the heart of Chatsworth. Originally a part of the Ex-Mission de San Fernando, Rancho Juanita was developed by Harry J. Reidsma and wife Juanita. It was built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style in 1937, with a covered patio extending around the home and a colonnade to the Guest House/Casita, with two additional dwelling units (currently rented - see Rental Income Report in Documents Tab). The two units are privately metered for electricity. The Guest House also includes a garage and a separate laundry facility adjacent. Included in the home and Guest House is a dual, local hardwired Mesh/Wifi network that provides wireless access & control for various devices (i.e. lights, sprinkler, HVAC, CCTV cams etc.). The tiled roof palapa is equipped with a wood burning BBQ, electricity, and a gas shut off to the counter. Behind a remote controlled gate, there are water, sewer and electric (30A) hookups for possible RV parking and also near the two workshop Tuff Sheds toward the back of the property. New A/C and FAU. The kitchen has been remodeled with a versatile farmhouse sink, expansive garden window, heated tile floors and hidden pull-out pantries. Cabinetry is soft-closing. True to the Spanish Colonial Revival style the living room has hand carved exposed beam ceilings with matching recessed shelves, a stacked stone fireplace and whimsical tinted portal windows, capturing the different hues of the seasonal sunsets. Additional updates scheduled are exterior painting of the home and Casita, front door replacement, interior door replacements, and crown molding touch up. Convenient to Shopping, restaurants, freeway, parks, schools (including the highly acclaimed Sierra Canyon School) nearby. Home is sold 'as is' with no additional repairs. For the current owners, Rancho Juanita has been a labor of love arresting and restoring many of the vintage aspects and is waiting for the talented hands of a craftsman to complete the finishing touches.
