Mr. George Kryden was a bright man. For proof I cite the following: (1) in 1936 he owned this gorgeous street-to-street view lot in Glendale’s Rossmoyne neighborhood, and (2) he acquired a brilliant architectural solution for this special parcel – the authentic Spanish two-story that you see today with front elevations on both E. Mountain and Torres Drive. Bravo.
The architectural intelligence continues throughout the dramatic four bedroom and four bath interior. From Torres, which is the functional “front”, the floor plan unfolds beautifully from the formal entry and its four directional archways. The formal living and dining rooms are simply stunning with hardwood floors, original casement windows, a fireplace, and gorgeous views. Off the living room is the tranquil sunroom with a wall of glass and even more views. The kitchen has been updated and includes granite counters, hardwood flooring, a center isle, a butler’s pantry, and a commanding view of the sparkling pool and spa.
The central hall leads to three bedrooms and their three baths. The master is a romantic master retreat with three large closets, a built-in desk, an oversized master bath, and a private master balcony. Downstairs there is a large family room with another fireplace and a fourth living suite with a sitting room, utility room, bedroom, bath, and yet another fireplace. The downstairs also has its own formal entrance from E. Mountain as well as a private logia and wine room for entertaining. This Spanish treasure has so many original built-ins, accent tiles, and fixtures that are still intact. What a find for a very fortunate Buyer.
