This 1950s residence in Glendale’s Montecito Park neighborhood was, per the listing, built as the personal residence of its designer, a local architect.
Since then, it appears to have had its share of updates, but many of the home’s sleek modern features remain. Fins alongside the front window provide built-in shading, and the living room boasts a handsome brick fireplace and wood paneling. Sliding glass doors retract all the way into the wall, merging the living room and the backyard for when the weather’s nice.
The 2,177-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, with a second level that can function as a separate unit. It sits on a 9,475-square-foot lot with an attached garage and a swimming pool. A backyard area separate from the pool includes patio space, shady trees, and a grassy lawn.
On the market for the first time since 1998, the home is located at 3000 North Verdugo Road and is asking $999,000.
