Perched on a knoll overlooking the Verdugo Woodlands is one of Glendale’s grand Mediterraneans that has been reimagined with exquisite taste and materials. It is now an elegant gated estate in which to both live and entertain beautifully.
From the motor court and up the impressive front stairs, you are received into a spacious three level formal entry and its wide stair. A senate race could be announced in the formal step down living room with its high multi-beamed ceiling, fireplace, and tall glass doors leading to garden and loggia alike. The dining room is formal with a Lago Azul limestone bar, European Oak wide plank flooring, and its own private garden alcove. The chef’s kitchen is the sumptuous hub of the home with a high barrel ceiling, custom made master craftsman cabinets, gorgeous natural stone counters, high end appliances, butler’s pantry with wine refrigerator, breakfast room, and a bright family room. From the kitchen the La Cantina glass wall opens to the BBQ area and leads to the large rear yard. This first floor also has a powder room and a guest bedroom suite.
Up the grand stairs are three large bedroom suites all with their own remodeled baths. The master suite enjoys its own fireplace, walk-in closet, view, and elegant master bath. The other two suites also enjoy the view, with one from its own private balcony. The house also has a “chauffer’s” room that makes for a quiet home office/gym, a large basement for wine storage, and a two-car attached garage with interior stairs.
