New, 5 comments

The well-preserved Pennsylvania-Dutch cottage was designed for the architect’s sister

How’s this for brotherly love? In 1941, gifted architect Gerard Colcord was generous enough to design a charming home for his sister and her new husband. Located in Glendale’s bucolic Chevy Chase Canyon, just down the road from Lloyd Wright’s Derby House, the Pennsylvania Dutch-style farmhouse has held up quite nicely over the years.

Measuring 2,025 square feet, the three-bedroom, two-bath home is endowed with a host of signature Colcord features, including a grand living room fireplace, knotty pine paneling, built-in bookshelves, Dutch-doors, and wrought-iron hardware.

The master suite features hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, and a dressing room with cedar closets.

On the upper level is another quaint bedroom with fireplace that opens up to a rooftop deck.

Occupying a 14,838-square-foot lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $850,000.
