FROM THE PAGES OF DIAMOND BAR HISTORY – Featured in a section of the Diamond Bar library, this unique home was built by William Barthomae, renowned contractor/builder and original owner of all Diamond Bar (once his own Black Angus cattle ranch). He was known as the "William Randolph Hearst of Southern California" at that time. It was purchased in 1980 by the current owner. Sitting on a sprawling 1.5 acre lot (comprised of two separate parcels), this 4,848 square foot, single-level SFR offers 8 bedrooms (traditional bedrooms & multi-purpose rooms combined), 6 bathrooms and 2 kitchens. No expense was spared in the creation of this one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Notable items include 2-inch thick redwood siding, brick and stone exterior, 5-foot vented overhang around the entire house (provides excellent climate control), cedar-lined closets, tile flooring warmed by circulating hot water (in bathrooms), 2 marble fireplaces, large solar system (owned), remote-controlled 13′ entrance gate, oversized (25’ x 75’) 6-car garage with room for a large workshop, storage for a 40′ RV (sewer & electrical connections included), large 4-tiered water fountain, enormous pool (with spa) built in 2002, potential for use as two separate residences (each with its own kitchen/living room/bedrooms/master bedroom), and nearby 6.83 acre Larkstone Park. The producing fruit trees and exotic foliage from around the world are too numerous to mention. Explore it today!
