We’ll never have to wonder what this Glendale’s house looked like when it was built, because it’s basically the same today. “Original architecture and finishes all the way down to the door knobs,” the listing proclaims.

Built in 1950, this house in the Chevy Chase Canyon area has remained in the same family for more than six decades. It’s no wonder they’d want to hold onto it.

Set back from the street atop a curved and sloping driveway, this sleek, by-the-book midcentury modern features strategic floor-to-ceiling windows, beamed ceilings, wood-paneled walls, and a spacious kitchen.

The 1,554-square-foot house holds three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and sits on two lots. From the rear yard, there are hillside views for miles, along with a little grass and a patio area. A probate sale, it is listed at $770,000.
