An elegant home designed by an Imagineer….
The last Imagineer (personally hired by Walt Disney) designed this house… a real life “It’s a Wonderful Life” home in Glendale. The two story Colonial style home sits on a tree-shaded avenue and is a seamless blend of elegant formal spaces and cheerful, open gathering spaces. A six bedroom house can be just about any configuration of living arrangements you can name, with two bedrooms downstairs (one is set up as a den and can be opened to the living room) and 4 bedrooms upstairs. Three baths ensure that no one should have to wait. The back of the house is one large and cheerful space containing a peninsula style kitchen, family room/eating area, walk-in pantry and laundry area. French doors lead to the entertaining deck and grassy garden area.
Sit. Relax. Listen to the breeze. Float away to the sounds of the running fountain.
You want peace and quiet. You love a real “neighborhood”, but prefer to see nothing but the verdant trees and hear little other than the breeze and the birds. Welcome to a remodeled contemporary home that enjoys almost complete privacy. The open floor plan features large formal spaces, well appointed kitchen and baths, and large home theater that could serve as a 4th bedroom suite. The master suite features lavish bath and walk in closet. Numerous skylights light most rooms during the day, and all LED lighting takes over at night.
