In 1954 Julius Shultz selected this parcel on Glendale’s iconic Niodrara Drive on which to build. With Rudolph Shindler’s famous Rodriguez House already well established just two doors away, Mr. Shultz must have been inspired to blend the best of traditional with more modern design. The result is this savvy synthesis with traditional exterior lines in concert with mid-century leanings throughout the interior.
The flowing floor plan allows for ease of fine living within this well conceived design. The entry opens to the formal living room with hardwood flooring, original corner casement windows, and a warm fireplace hearth. There is elegant entertaining in the oversized formal dining room with its view out to the lush gardens. The household chef will thrive in the tastefully updated kitchen. All three bedrooms are off the central hall. Notice the pristine mid-century tiles that have been preserved in both baths – they look like vintage Gladding McBean Hermosa Tiles that were produced locally at that time.
It’s the rear grounds where the Owners have shown off their vision and talents. The free standing open air family room is just genius for LA living – enjoying the big screen with hardwired sound in the gorgeous natural setting. The rear yard has been professionally conceived and lovingly tended – you will be rewarded if you follow the path through the pampered gardens and fruit trees to the romantic view deck near the top. The home also has central heat and air, an updated electrical service, a new driveway, and a two car attached garage with ample storage and an additional wood working room.
