This storybook English-style Cottage sits on a hidden knoll with rambling gardens and is located in the Verdugo Woodlands – in California of all places! Glendale, California to be exact.
The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom 1,552 square foot cottage is listed for $1,065,000. That’s no small amount but the price tag has already been slashed once. A couple more months of coronavirus pandemic and the price will be down in the bargain basement!
This 1924-built house is just so charming – all the details are right out of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs…
Look at the massive hand-carved front door.
It really is that big – look at it from the inside – complete with custom wrought iron fittings.
You enter into the great room with a vaulted cathedral ceiling that makes the space feel much larger than it actually is.
There are so many details to behold: the patterned peg and groove hardwood floors; exposed rafters, custom multi-pane windows, built-in niches, and a centerpiece clinker brick fireplace with a hand-carved inglenook mantle.
Realtors must love when they get to list a house as unique as this one. It cuts up the repetitive boredom of “…granite/stainless…blah, blah, blah”.
House Crazy Sarah could totally see herself living here. It’s quaint, it’s unusual, it’s vintage, and it is located in sunny California.
The kitchen / dining / breakfast rooms are just so bright and lovely!
House Crazy Sarah spies some vintage cabinetry!
Look how sweet and elegant the master bedroom is…
And check out the original 1920’s tile work in the master bathroom…
Pink and black – they don’t make bathrooms like that anymore!
Look at the old sink in the other bathroom:
Here’s one more light and airy bedroom:
House Crazy Sarah is impressed with the amount of adorable windows in the house. They all look custom and original.
Out back is the most enchanting private patio area:
The property also features a double garage with a large extra attic space above.
The listing agent declares: “Buy this fairy tale home and you’ll live happily ever after.”
Hard to argue with that selling point!
Love that pink bathroom (the tile anyway–not so sure about the wallpaper)!
