I was born in Glendale in 1962 and have been a resident ever since. Though I have walked, jogged, and driven past this address hundreds if not thousands of times, I had no idea what lay beyond that white wall and blue door. This Clair Earl 1962 design is a treasured surprise, for beyond that blue door is a swanky Palm Springs pool party mid-century with high ceilings, tall windows, and cherished privacy. In other words, this is not your average Glendale home.
The pool forward design was a great choice for this large lot of over 10,000sf. The false entry leads to a wonderful two level entertaining area and a long covered walk to the front door. The entry opens to the oversized living and dining rooms which have large glass sliders, the original fireplace with a floating hearth, and original built-ins. Just off the living room is a great home office with its own glass slider to the rear grounds as well as its own original built-in book shelves and cabinets. The large kitchen and breakfast room are pure original and in hopes of being upgraded by a purest of this form. The central hall leads to all four of the bedrooms and the three baths with the master having its own bath as well as its own sliders leading to the back garden area.
Besides the extensive pool entertaining area, there is a side patio and a large rear lawn and garden. There is also a bonus guest suite with its own bath, a large laundry room, an extra storage room, as well as a large attached two car garage. The Owners have loved their many decades here and hope the same for a very fortunate Buyer.
