In the market for a modern and stateside take on a French chateau, chiefly a nearly new one teeming with coffered ceilings, strikingly monochromatic floors and custom furnishings, just for starters? Well, if you have plenty of cash burning a proverbial hole in your pocket, this stately gem could be yours for a smidge under $9.5 million.


Built in 2020 and crafted by architect John Barber, the bespoke mansion is nestled on a promontory overlooking the San Gabriel Valley, in Glendora‘s affluent and guard-gated Gordon Highlands neighborhood. Previously offered for sale at $10.8 million, and subsequently reduced to just under $10 million, the newly priced property is described in the listing as “a true testament to opulence and refinement.”

Resting amid a secluded cul-de-sac, on a corner lot spanning a little over an acre, the creamy stucco structure features six bedrooms and an equal number of baths in almost 9,000 square feet of Jennifer Bevan-designed living space. Two levels boast grand-scale rooms laced with posh details and finishes, plus large expanses of glass offering picturesque hillside and city lights views.

A gated driveway empties out at a spacious motorcourt flanked by an attached four-car garage tucked off to the side of the house, with decorative wood and glass front doors opening into a soaring chandelier-topped foyer displaying a striking checkerboard tile floor and curving staircase adorned with a wrought-iron railing.

From there, a double-height living room has walls of windows, herringbone-pattern wood floors, a fireplace and French doors spilling out to a covered terrace, and a sleekly designed kitchen is outfitted with dual islands, top-tier wolf appliances, a walk-in pantry and an accompanying dining area. An upstairs master retreat also comes complete with a fireside sitting area, balcony, showroom-style closet, and luxe bath with dual vanities, a soaking tub and glassy shower.
