Bundy Ranch • Designed by John Byers, Architect 1927 • 401 Mesa Road , Santa Monica California, 90402
Placed on the rim of Mesa Hillside in the Santa Monica Canyon sits the southern part of the "Bundy Ranch”, the family residence of developer Frank Bundy. Designed by John Byers, true to his timeless signature Spanish Colonial Revival architecture of Southern California the house was built for Carl & Betty Bundy Guercio in the 1920”s. Sensitively restored, preserving all the traditional elements including the white-washed stucco, plaster, wrought iron fixtures, arches, terraces, patios and ornate tile work all add to the romance of the house in its intimate yet gracious nature. The large scale great room, centered around the grounded fireplace and high exposed beamed ceilings anchors the house. The formal dining room is stepped up adjacent to the kitchen and breakfast room. A wrap around veranda is accessible from the living room, as well as the master bedroom, offering easy indoor/outdoor access and views of the grounds. The main level also offers two spacious bedrooms. On the lower level, accessing the gardens are two additional bedrooms plus an art studio. The two car garage is attached. “Frequently cast in the profound shadow and light, houses that are at once mediations of the past and also abiding evocation of a way of life that is so much of the present.” DJ. Waldie, California Romantica.
