"In 1951, George Ames was the Sr. V. P. at [Pereira] & Assoc., a well known architectural firm in Los Angeles. His wife, Arline, was a local girl, graduated from Glendale High. It just made sense for them to build their home and start their family in Glendale. And that is what they did," explains the rather charming copy for this time capsule in Glendale's Rossmoyne neighborhood. Located on a .37-acre lot about a block north of the Diederich Street Reservoir, the custom-designed residence features two bedrooms, one and three-quarters baths, walls of glass, clerestory windows, wood-paneled walls, built-in storage, a living room fireplace, city and mountain views, and a two-car carport. Asking price for the 1,571-square-foot house, which, the listing notes, needs cosmetic repairs, is $799,000.
