Property Details

  • Bedrooms: 4

This is a rare two-story post and beam home on a knoll with city views in two directions. With its open floor plan, exposed wood beams, and walls of glass it is a work of art in which one is graced to live. This original vision of architects Hawkins and Lindsey has been meticulously maintained by just two owners since it was commissioned in 1964 on these two view lots in Glendale’s sought-after Montecito Park neighborhood.

The living and dining rooms with their wide plank flooring enjoy a striking view of downtown Los Angeles. The oversized family room/conservatory is like none I have ever seen with a 14-ft ceiling, an indoor garden, and a tall wall of glass overlooking the lush rear grounds and pool. The kitchen is updated yet preserved, and true to the original design. The main level continues with three bedrooms and two updated baths, with the rear two bedrooms enjoying a view out over the Crescenta Valley. There is also a very cool reading lounge with a custom bar. Downstairs there is a large master retreat with its own view, large closets, and a remodeled master bath.

With over 13,000sf, these parcels have a grass play yard, an elevated viewing deck, outdoor dining areas, a dog run, and a beautiful pool and spa. A few additional features of this exceptional home are newer roofing, solar panels, central air and heating, an attached two car garage with electric car charging station, and the award-winning schools of this neighborhood.
