This 1964 house in the hills of Glendale, along the 2 Freeway, was bordering on time capsule when it was purchased in July for $809,000, but the new owners got to work on carefully updating the four-bedroom, three-bathroom house so that the coolest period elements (floor-to-ceiling lava rock fireplace) stayed and the lamest ones (weird carpet) were replaced. The resulting house features hardwood floors throughout, quartz counters in the kitchen, and updated bathrooms.
The 2,107-square-foot house sits on one-third of an acre that's accessed via a lengthy, curving driveway. The property also includes two large decks and a two-car garage that's been converted into a studio. The place is now asking $1.179 million.
