Imperial Drive is one of Glendale’s very best residential locations and it was here in 1935 that Dr. Hales commissioned the design and construction of this elegant two-story for his family. He tastefully blended the best of the Tudor and French styles to create this stunning traditional with a high gabled roof, French windows, and brick accents. It is now coming to the market for the first time in over 50 years.
The formal entry has detailed mahogany flooring, an open stairwell with iron hand rail, and a two-story entry ceiling. The formal living room is grand with more mahogany flooring, large multipaned windows, and a gorgeous original fireplace. Just off the living room is a bright music room with the original slate flooring still intact. The formal dining room is just that as a space of grandeur for elegant entertaining. The bright kitchen with white tile counters enjoys a view out to the rear grounds and has a separate breakfast room. This first floor also has a family room/den that has rich wood flooring, wood trim, its own fireplace, powder room, and a hidden wet bar.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms and three baths. The master suite is spectacular with a large master bedroom with oak floors, oversized French windows, a dressing area, three closets, and a full master bath. The grounds have been professionally landscaped with mature trees, grass play areas, outdoor entertaining areas, and pampered gardens. There is a wonderful detached quest quarters built in the 40’s that has an open frame wood beam ceiling and a massive fireplace. There is also an updated roof, a large basement, and a detached three car garage.
