Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac, this is the premier parcel in the sought-after Montecito Park neighborhood and is rich in local Glendale history. Albert Cornwell’s family moved to Glendale in 1892. In 1911 Albert and Daniel Kelty opened their Cornwell and Kelty store on Brand. His son and second-generation store operator, Glen Cornwell acquired this large lot in 1959 and hired the Nelson Brothers to build his dream home here in this cutting-edge mid-century design. The current Owners have been the long serving stewards of this hidden historical estate with perhaps the most beautiful grounds I have seen in Glendale.
The sprawling one-story four bedroom and three bath elegant design enjoys a large home office as well as a huge family room with 3,231sf on a lot of 26,779sf. The formal entry opens to the formal living and dining rooms and both look out over the massive rear grounds. The bright and tastefully updated kitchen opens directly to the huge family room with its wall of glass looking out to the rear grounds as well. The original central hall leads to three of the bedrooms and their beautifully updated baths. The master suite enjoys a large walk-in closet and its own remodeled master bath. The fourth bedroom is a second master suite with another large closet and gorgeous remodeled bath.
And then there is the yard…Wow! There is a huge grass play yard under the shade of mature trees. Then there is the massive pool and pool deck that would be too large for most lots, but not here. There is also a large spa within its own covered area. These are all served by the most elaborate outdoor kitchen and bar area I have seen with massive granite counters, high end stainless appliances, custom lighting, and a large covered TV. Add to all this artfully designed landscaping a four-hole putting green, a private detached second home office, an attached two car garage with lots of extra storage, and the award-winning schools of this neighborhood.
