Offered for the first time in four decades – by its original owner – this 1978 classic four-bedroom, three bath Glendale home provides privacy, amenities, and plenty of room to grow both inside and out.

The high beamed wood ceilings and large windows bring a light, bright feel to this abode, which was designed by the famed architect Richard Kemp – who initially had the home built for his own family.

The main living area has a large fireplace and copper mantle as its primary centerpiece. And the large kitchen provides plenty of counter and cabinet space.

Outside you will find mature sycamore and oak trees throughout the nearly one-and-a-half acre property, along with an ample-sized patio and pool. There is also a creek that meanders its way through the yard, which offers an added level of serenity.

Nestled in a private and shaded setting, this residence is still just minutes from Pasadena, Downtown Glendale, and the Burbank Studios – so you can also add convenience to your list of plusses here.

Located at 2830 Glenoaks Canyon Drive in Glendale’s Scholl Canyon, the property is currently listed for sale at $1.595 million. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
