A true post and beam home is a work of art. With its open floor plan, exposed wood beams, and walls of glass it feels like a sculpture in which one is graced to live. The original vision of architects Hawkins and Lindsey has been meticulously maintained by the original Owner since she commissioned its construction in 1962 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 gorgeous view of downtown Los Angeles. The oversized family room is like none I have ever seen – 14 foot ceiling, an indoor planter, and a tall wall of glass overlooking the lush rear grounds and pool. The kitchen is thankfully preserved and true to the original design. The main level continues with three bedroom and two 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 private master bath.
With almost 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 central air and heating, an attached two car garage with extra storage, and the excellent schools of La Crescenta.
