The Richard H Keating House, Edward H Fickett, FAIALocated in the Estate's area of San Marino, surrounded by master works by Wallace Neff, Myron Hunt & Robert Farquhar, the Keating House is Edward Fickett's Modern contribution to this exclusive club. Built in 1962, this single-level California/Mid-Century Modern (MCM) estate employs many of Fickett's modernist innovations that would later define the architect. Living room w/soaring 16' open-beamed vaulted ceiling supported by towering brick & glass walls w/clerestory windows exemplify Fickett's love for natural light & volume. Bedrooms & public rooms use walls of glass & sliders opening to lanai, pool & gardens, extending the interior living space. Great room w/post & beam construction, clerestory windows, signature brick fireplace & large pass-through windows from kitchen to outdoor seating are beautiful, yet functional, providing for ease of indoor/outdoor living. Jr bedrooms are conveniently adjacent to this informal space & buffered from the more formal living room, primary & office suites located on the west side of the residence. Sited on 1.26 gated ac, famed Japanese landscape designer, Edward Koizumi, complemented Fickett's design by utilizing water features, Japanese structures, & mixing large open spaces, w/more private, intimate sanctuaries. Combining many of Fickett's modernist talents, w/its playful roofline of multi-planed triangular panels boarded again by clerestory window treatments atop walls of glass & brick, the 1BR/1BA pool house is a true delight; a master class on light, texture, balance & form. Anchoring & overseeing it all, is an enormous Indian Coral tree, thought to be one of the largest specimens in the area.In a city known for its 1920-1930's architectural landmarks, the Keating House is a rare Modern addition to San Marino's acclaimed architectural heritage. The winner of a National American Institute of Architects Award, Fickett's work was recognized as an immediate classic. Lauded for its form, design as well as function, The Keating House combines the best of Fickett's oeuvre w/evolving post WW2 emphases on a balanced lifestyle, family & friends, & harmony w/the outdoors.
