It is rare that an estate property is available in Glendale’s sought after Montecito Park neighborhood. In 1924, Mr. Eglen Taylor had not only the foresight but the means to build this elegant Tudor at the center of this cherished neighborhood. The roofline is a structural work of art with its many steep pitched gables while the distinctive half timbering and the rows of casement lead glass windows display the pedigree of this large four bedroom and four bath home.
The interior is an elegant blend of that original character and more modern updates. The remodeled kitchen opens to the family and breakfast rooms which share a fireplace and wood floors. The step down living and dining rooms allow for grand entertaining. The main level has an attached guest apartment with its own large bedroom, office, sitting room, and bath. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two updated baths. The master retreat enjoys an oversized bedroom, two walk-in closets, and a master bath that feels like vacation. There is also an upstairs terrace hideaway on which to enjoy a peaceful view.
The grounds are lush with pampered gardens, lawns, and several trees. The rear yard has a picturesque lagoon style pool with three waterfalls and a spa. Just a few details include: three zones of central air and heat, a concrete tile roof, an upgraded electrical panel, upgraded plumbing, a foundation retrofitted in 2002, and a two car detached garage.
