Sierra Madre’s historic Pinney House has a history as unique as its architecture. The 10,000 square foot Queen Anne Victorian was designed by famed architects Samuel and Joseph Cather Newsom and built for retired Civil War surgeon Dr. Elbert Pinney. Take Sunset reported that the 133-year-old structure was originally built as a “railroad hotel” for East Coasters making land purchases. The 10 bedroom, 11 bathroom residence was later used as a sanatorium, boarding house, film location and was even visited by Robert Todd Lincoln, son of Abraham Lincoln. Extensive work has been completed with new plumbing, new electrical, HVAC systems, structural support and foundation work and a restored grand front porch. There is a conservatory, parlour, library, formal dining room, remodelled kitchen and grand staircase. City of Sierra Madre has stated there is a chance to get a Conditional Use Permit to operate as a Bed and Breakfast. The Pinney House is on the market for $3.2 million with Keller Williams Executive.
