It is 1937, Frank Capra Has Cast You In This Burbank Horse Ranch

Now here's a listing with some lively copy!

It is 1937. Frank Capra has cast you as the lead in his Lost Horizon. In it you've searched and searched for your estate on the hill, the shaded paradise where all is possible. An estate complete with massive fireplace, open beamed living room cathedral ceiling, master suite with his and hers bathrooms, a library with wet bar, formal dining room for lingering late into the night, a diver's pool under an ancient live oak, woodshop, three horse stalls plus a separate studio where you will launch that secret project...Your Shangri-La. See? She waits for you. Claim her, now, for the happy ending you so richly deserve. Sounds like someone's been watching a lot of TCM. Not that we disapprove--quite the opposite. We do, however, disapprove of our agent/screenwriter's penchant for ALL CAPS (we've kindly retyped the above spiel). And we don't recall there being any vertical blinds in Lost Horizon. Despite that and a few other questionable design choices, the 2,044-square-foot home seems to have retained a fair amount of original 1930s charm, and if you're a horsey type, you could hardly ask for a better location. Sited on a 12,700-square-foot lot, the property is listed at $895,000.
