This teal-colored charmer off Magnolia Boulevard (and Burbank’s quirky Magnolia District) was built in 1941 but has some great, modern upgrades including refinished hardwood floors and dual-paned windows to keep the house quiet and cool.
One of the standout features is definitely the unique, wood-paneled den. With a towering, rustic brick fireplace and a Dutch door linked to the kitchen, this room looks like something out of a fairytale.
The den also holds a cool, double-doored nook that leads to the attic. A single built-in rung remains beneath the entrance to the nook, hinting at bygone ladder access to this fun little hidey-hole.
The retro kitchen still has its original backsplash and, from the looks of it, original cabinets, too.
The two-bedroom, two-bath house sits on a large, nearly 7,500-square-foot lot. The rear yard is mostly just grassy, save for the covered patio that connects to the house and a detached garage.
The house is listed for $679,000.
