In 1938, Mr. and Mrs. Woodill wisely commissioned architect John C. Fleming to design a special home on this valuable parcel in the heart Glendale’s Verdugo Woodlands neighborhood. Fleming’s design extrapolates from the Tudor style with its high pitched roofline and roughhewn timbers, creating a wonderfully eclectic blend of traditional elements that lean forward to a more modern artistic expression with an open and light filled interior.
The formal entry opens to a welcoming formal living room with parquet wood floors, floor to ceiling casement windows, a warm fireplace hearth, and gorgeous wood detail. The elegant dining room enjoys the same wood flooring and its own fireplace. The bright kitchen has been tastefully updated by the current artistic Owners. The main hall leads to three bedrooms and two baths, and there is another very large bedroom upstairs as well. The master suite has a large bedroom, two closets with a separate dressing area, and a beautifully preserved full bath. There is also a cool den with original tile flooring, high wood beamed ceiling, and a lovely view out to the yard.
The rear grounds are a private sanctuary with a large sparkling pool and covered lanai for wonderful outdoor entertaining. There is also a detached guest suite with its own bath. Just a few additional features include central heating and air, a newer roof with copper accents, and a three car detached garage with new doors.
