New, 67 comments


Today the market brings us a real gem of a time capsule in the Jewel City. Designed as his personal residence by USC-trained architect Denver Markwith Jr., whose commercial development firm Buttress, McClellan, & Markwith erected numerous factories, offices, and library buildings in Southern California, the 1965 post and beam is located in Glendale's Verdugo Woodlands. Per the description, the 2,788-square-foot house features three bedrooms, two and a half baths, two masonry fireplaces, cathedral ceilings, walls of glass, clerestory windows, clear redwood wall panels, oak and mahogany built-in shelving and cabinetry, and Douglas fir tongue-and-groove decking. Sited on a 7,913-square-foot lot, it's listed for the first time in a trust sale at $865,000.
