LA ATALYA (Watch Tower)- 1913- The Historic William Porter Estate- Originally designed by Arthur B. Benton and nearly destroyed by a fire in 1924, This grand Spanish influenced residence was re-imagined by famed Mission Inn Architect Robert Spurgeon, Jr. and re-constructed in 1925. Offered today largely unaltered having had just two owners in the past 50 years, this amazing estate offers a glimpse back to a time when Orange Groves covered the Hawarden Hills neighborhood along Victoria Avenue and just the original 9 grove houses built by the pioneering citrus families of the area dotted the hillside. Unbelievable original details abound at every turn highlighted by the floating three story rotunda stairway; Beamed formal living room with beehive fireplace and adjacent music room; Massive dining room with beamed ceiling, fireplace and two sets of beveled glass pocket doors; Cheery breakfast room off the island kitchen and butler's serving pantry. A total of 6 bedrooms all with ensuite baths. The 4th floor of the tower houses an office space with views out of 3 sides of the city surrounding. The enchanting grounds with trees older than the house itself envelope the residence and create seclusion, serving as the setting of many private family events over the decades. A rare opportunity to acquire and reside in a true work of art as well as a piece of Riverside history.
