In a career that spanned six decades, Gerard Colcord made quite an imprint on Southern California’s landscape, designing more than three hundred private residences. The undisputed master of the “Country Colonial,” Colcord drew up this charming cottage in Glendale for his younger sister, Eunice, in 1941.

Located just down the road from Lloyd Wright’s Derby House in woodsy Chevy Chase Canyon, the Pennsylvania Dutch Colonial contains three bedrooms and two baths within its 2,003 square feet.

Apart from its modernized kitchen, the cottage looks much the same as it did when it was built. Trademark Colcord features include a flagstone-embedded chimney and exterior walls, knotty pine paneling, built-in bookshelves, Dutch doors, custom wrought iron work, and multiple fireplaces—including one that’s outside the house. Exterior spaces include rooftop and lower level patios.

The listing also notes that the home’s roof and HVAC system were replaced in 2017.

Sited on a 14,831-square-foot sloped lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $965,000. An open house is scheduled Saturday, March 10, from 1 to 4 p.m.
