Dr. Prout searched long for a site on which to build a home for he and his wife. His search ended once he saw this massive parcel at the end of a cul-de-sac in this picturesque setting of Glenoaks Canyon. In 1957 he commissioned the building of this large one-story four bedroom and four bath gated estate on this majestic lot of over 85,000sf. The late 50’s design takes full advantage of the large flat portion of this site and, thankfully, so much of the original character has been preserved.
The floor plan is ideal with a large formal entry opening to a grand formal living room with wall of glass overlooking the rear grounds. The family room, dining room and large kitchen enjoy their own fireplace, high beamed wood ceiling, and views out to the rear yard. The central hall leads to all four of the bedrooms and three of the baths. The master retreat has a huge master bedroom, its own office or library, dressing room, and master bath. The rear grounds are truly park-like with a pool, lawns, gardens, and so much space for expansion possibilities. There is also central heating and air, a newer roof, a large motor court, and a three car garage.
