McCall’s House, No. 75 on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources, is an impeccably restored and upgraded French Revival style home located in the coveted Royal Boulevard Historic District. Completed in 1936, McCall’s House was built as a model home and featured as the "Home of the Month" in the popular women's magazine that same year.
Designed by local architect Merrill W. Baird and featured in The Glendale Historical Society's Royal Revivals home tour in 2018, this period home is located in Glendale's finest Royal Canyon hillside neighborhood beautified by the city's well-planned design of underground utilities. This Mills Act historical home is filled with original architectural period details such as a steeply pitched hipped roof, two phone niches, crown molding, wainscoting & picture rails as well as fluted casings around the doors and marble fireplace in the living room.
Welcome to a check board marble foyer that leads to radiant interior colors used in unpredictable ways in the stunning formal living and dining rooms as well as the handsome office & library complete with custom alder wood built-ins. The heart of the home is the huge 550 sq ft kitchen & family room with French doors opening to a charming brick patio with a wall fountain. Truly a cook’s kitchen with a large Sile Stone counter top & island boasting professional stainless steel appliances including double convection ovens, Viking gas six burner cooktop, two dishwashers, beverage drawers, double door refrigerator/freezer, warming drawer and microwave oven! Both a powder room and 3/4 bath are located on the lower level in addition to the laundry area.
