The country estate was designed for Ernest de Koven Leffingwell. Leffingwell was an arctic explorer and geologist. He also served as a Seaman on the US battleship Oregon during the Spanish-American War. He retired to Whittier, California and moved to Carmel, California 20 years later. He died in 1971 and at that time was believed to have been the oldest surviving polar explorer.
