Designed by architect Richard Fleming, a graduate of USC’s School of Architecture, the four-bedroom, three-bath home was built in 1963 as a spec house by developer Robert Prock.
While City of Glendale reports “The property was in a severe state of disrepair when it was bought by the current owner in 2010” the result of a deliberate restoration to retain the integrity of its original design earned the dwelling recognition as an “outstanding example of post and beam modern-style architecture.”
Hidden behind the tall, original, red brick wall, you see some crisply detailed shiplap wood siding and, from the street, you can “literally look straight through the roof” and enjoy views of the mountains via the unique architectural skylight jutting up above the roofline.
Measuring 2,103 square feet, the interior reveals an open floor plan filled with tons of ambient light featuring beamed and vaulted ceilings, walls of glass, hardwood floors, built-in cabinetry, updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, and sliding doors from the living room leading out to a wraparound deck with views of oak trees, ceanothus, and native chaparral, the San Rafael hills and beyond.
The lower level contains the bedrooms, the laundry room, and features more wraparound deck space.
Located near the Chevy Chase Country Club, the 8,195-square-foot hillside lot also offers an attached two-car garage.
Asking price is $1.499 million.
