Per the Listing: "This is one of the most special and historic offerings in Glendale history. This spectacular Spanish Colonial Revival was designed by society architect William Barber and is situated on an enormous 25,835 (.59 acre) square foot lot. Barber's magnificent features are still evident throughout and have been meticulously restored. There are stenciled, coffered and hand-painted beam ceilings, peg and groove hardwood flooring, and original, ornate fireplace screens and drapery hardware. There is extensive use of Tahitian mahogany, hand-crafted tiles and stunning wrought iron work. The Robin Dorman-designed award-winning kitchen has been featured in California Homes & California Home and Design. Multiple terraces surrounding the house offer breathtaking views and are perfect for entertaining. The professionally landscaped grounds are truly impressive. This prestigious Mills Act residence is listed on the state list of historic properties."
Hope you had a light lunch, because this house is quite a feast for the senses! Speaking of feasts, its "award-winning" kitchen is a real appetite killer, but in its defense, the remodel happened in 1985, according to the property's Mills Act application documents (pdf).
