Even with just a tad more than 1,200 square feet of interior living space, this rustic ranch style home offers a lot of bang for the buck. Surrounded by mature pine and orange trees, you’ll love the privacy it offers, while still conveniently situated near many of southern California’s hot spots.

The two-bedroom, one-bath residence has a lot to love, including beautiful beamed ceilings, built-in hutches and bookcases, a brick wood-burning fireplace, and knotty pine cabinetry and paneling. The brick walkway from the street provides an inviting touch, which leads to the home’s covered front porch.

In the home’s original kitchen, you’ll find a double cast iron sink, along with a unique secretary desk – a perfect spot for a computer or small TV. There is also a covered patio area in back, making for a quiet, peaceful retreat.

Located at 4549 Palm Drive in La Canada Flintridge – and only about a mile from Descanso Gardens – this private home, on the market for the first time in 50 years, is now offered for sale at $955K. This price includes two additional storage buildings (each built to code) on the property. Private showings can be arranged for interested purchasers.
