Upon seeing the words "TRUST SALE - first time on the market in 40 years" in the listing description for this 1927 Spanish in Glendale, we figured there was a good chance the house would turn out to be a time capsule. And indeed it is--for the year 2013. With the exception of one lovely knotty-pine-paneled bedroom, the 86-year-old residence has been thoroughly, and evidently quite recently, done over--you can practically smell the paint drying in the photos. And so it goes. Located just down the block from the Brand Park and Library, the 2,164-square-foot house features, per the listing, "three bedrooms (one with fireplace), two renovated bathrooms, an office/Den, a large living room with fireplace, a formal dining room, updated kitchen with quartz counter tops, newer stainless steel dishwasher and stove hood, laundry area, beautiful wood floors, central air & heat, copper plumbing, updated electrical panel, attached garage and professionally landscaped private yard." Sited on a 6,348-square-foot lot, it's asking $699,000.
