The Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Upton Sinclair’s former home in Monrovia has been listed on the market for $1.5 million.
A National Historic Landmark, the Spanish Colonial Revival-style house built in 1923 was occupied by Sinclair during the 1942 to the 1966, according to the listing.
The four-bedroom residence is 2,380 square feet in size and features high arched windows, Mission Revival parapet tops, and an ornate arched doorway. It has a breakfast room, formal dining room, formal living room and French doors that open to a side patio. The two bathrooms feature Batchelder Tile and a small guest house in the backyard.
The home is on the National Registry of Historic Places and has a Mills Act Contract with the City of Monrovia for property tax reduction.
Sinclair wrote more than 90 books in many genres including his famous 1906 “The Jungle,” which exposed conditions in the U.S. meat packing industry and his 1942 fiction “Dragon’s Teeth,” for which he won the Pulitzer Prize. Sinclair died in 1968 at age 90.
