From the backyard is a view of the bucolic Griffith Park hills, yet if one takes a stroll at night, not too far away are breathtaking views of downtown Glendale all aglow. Camphor tree-lined Ruberta Avenue is full of character homes and this one is no exception. The entry opens into the living room with a gentle barrel ceiling, impressive fire place with Batchelder-like tile, floor to ceiling picturesque window and hardwood floors. This moves easily into a formal dining room with tray ceiling, polished brass chandelier and plenty of natural light provided by two windows.

The bathroom has original tile walls, hexagonal tile floor, a built-in vanity and a shower over bath. At the end of the hallway is a good sized add-on great room that has potential as a master suite or an attached ADU. Features include plenty of double hung windows, chair railing, hardwood floors and floor to ceiling shelves. There is a kitchenette with Formica countertops and wood cabinets. Nearby is a half bathroom with Glacier Bay dual flush toilet and sink. Finally, this room has its own private entrance. The backyard is flat and fully enclosed.
