We can usually find something of value in an old LA house of any era. But there’s something extra-fascinating, dare we say even poignant, about a house built in the year 1929, in the heady last days before the Great Depression put an end to most people being able to employ master craftsman to construct their homes using high-quality materials.

That’s why it’s a real pleasure to make the acquaintance of this 1929 Spanish Revival in Glendale’s historic Rossmoyne District.

Located at 1121 North Everett Street, a few blocks west of the popular Nibley Park, the two-story residence holds five bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in its 2,724 square feet of living space. Though it’s seen a few changes, most notably in the kitchen, the 90-year-old home still possesses a wealth of lovely original features, including hardwood floors, a recently restored magnesite staircase, stenciled-beam ceilings, Art Deco tile, decorative ironwork and railings, archways, built-in vanities and bookshelves, and a service porch with original milk door.

On a 6,932-square-foot lot with mature fruit trees and a detached two-car garage, the property is listed with an asking price of $1.295 million. Ilana Gafni of Crosby Doe Associates holds the listing.

The step-down living room has original hardwood floors, stenciled beam ceilings, a plaster-and-tile fireplace, and arched nooks.
The magnesite tiles in the home’s elegant staircase were recently restored.
There are five bedrooms, including one with coffered ceilings and built-in shelves.
Each of the home’s three bathrooms features gorgeous Deco-era tile.
A second bathroom boasts original tile and matching fixtures in an unusual shell-pink shade.
Got milk? Here’s where you could put it! (Just for fun, though, not actual storage purposes.)
