This historic residence known as the Kuns House sits among mature oaks on a quiet corner lot in La Verne. Built and owned by Henry L. Kuns, a founding father of the University of La Verne, the home, restored by Ray Adamyk, mixes Edwardian Tudor design with hints of Craftsman bungalow style. A steeply pitched roof and overhanging beamed eaves define the exterior while a handsome black walnut mantle and stained glass French doors count among the interior features.
