The renowned Ace Architects, called the court jesters of California architecture by Vanity Fair, bring their sense of fun and whimsy to one of the Claremont Hills’ most stunning landmarks, the Saxophone House. Built in 1997 for an amateur jazz player, the home delights the child in each of us with its swirling gold staircases, enchanting curved balconies with treble-clef railings, and commanding saxophone towers. The home’s interior has grand, magical spaces for entertaining, and is both light-filled and surprisingly private. You’ll enjoy the sweeping canyon views, the chef’s kitchen with a Sub-Zero refrigerator, the slate and hardwood flooring, and the spacious three-car garage. This home is not to be missed.
