The choice view of the Glendale hills from the landscaped front yard is enough to make you shout, “I’ll take it!” Lest we be hasty, let’s go inside first. This 1948 traditional home was lovingly restored in 2010. The solid wood front door opens into the living room with custom crown and base board molding. There’s plenty of double pane, vinyl Superior windows for natural light, all with narrow slat plantation shutters. The fireplace has a warm custom built wood mantel. Wall to wall carpeting, with the option of hardwood floors preserved underneath, add to the cozy quality. Off to the side is the eating area beside bay windows looking south. Above is a ceiling fan/light. The efficient kitchen has a breakfast bar along with tile counters and backsplash, wainscoting, refrigerator, electric stove, microwave, vent fan, refaced custom wood cabinets, porcelain double sink,Tiffany-like hanging light and linoleum floor. Off the kitchen is the laundry room with a pantry closet, built-in ironing board, dishwasher and door to the driveway. The master bedroom is completely wood paneled including the ceiling with exposed beams. Once again plenty of windows allow a bounty of natural light. The organized closet with sliding glass doors is cedar paneled. The other bedroom offers track lighting and built-in closet and drawers. The full bathroom has separate shower with custom tile, soaking tub with brass fixtures, porcelain sink with tile counter, wall heater and linoleum floor. The backyard is a private sanctuary meticulously landscaped. A curving crushed granite pathway leads to a sitting bench beneath a shade tree. Be entertained by the squirrels cavorting about! The 2-car detached garage has extra shelves, tool pegboards and carpeted surface. There’s also a carport beside the side door. This house includes canvas awnings over the south side windows, Culligan soft water system, water filtration system in the kitchen, central air/heat, copper plumbing, upgraded electricity, concrete driveway, driveway gate, outdoor lighting,10-year old roof, and front yard landscaping which includes lavender, white roses, bougainvillea, rosemary and hummingbird feeders. It is close to shopping, freeway and located within the La Crescenta school district. OK, now you can say, “I’ll take it!”
