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.

The home is fronted by a grassy lawn and gardens.
The dining area is bounded by a wood-paneled wall with frosted clerestory windows.
The updated kitchen has quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Blue tiles adorn the shower of one of the home’s three bathrooms.
The house has both a swimming pool and a separate backyard with ample patio space.
