A two-owner home, the present owners bought this single story 3 bdrm 2 ba 1937 built home from the original owner because they were attracted to her preservation of the original details and they have worked toward maintaining the integrity while upgrading the systems.

This English style is a well-preserved architectural home which features a grand high vaulted ceiling living room with leaded windows, classic formal dining room, hardwood floors plus new custom wood windows and glass that are period correct. Two skylights, one with night light and stained leaded glass, a period kitchen with classic refurbished O'keefe-Merritt gas stove and original banquette, 2 wood-burning rebuilt fireplaces inside all contribute to the homey and comfortable feel of the Norman Rockwell family-style ambiance. In addition to the convenient location and huge grassy back yard with 70 yr old avocado tree that produces pounds and pounds of avocados each year, and includes a covered brick patio with a brick BBQ and fireplace wall, the system upgrades include: interior copper plumbing, new Certain Teed Grand Manor roof with new 5/8" plywood and underlayment, new period correct rain gutters, new central air and heating with electro-static air filter/purification, new HVAC ducts, powered attic vent, and new shower doors. With 1993 sf house on two parcels, one is 9710 sf and the rear parcel is 1880 sf (per assr), this is about a 1/4 acre, inviting a retreat-like ambiance and yet within minutes of the 134 and 5 fwys, downtown Glendale and busy big city life.
