1930s Storybook with Tudor touches in Shadow Hills seeks $700K

9941 McBroom Street | Shadow Hills 91040

Tucked away in the San Fernando Valley’s Shadow Hills neighborhood, this Storybook-style house with Tudor touches sits on a lot measuring over a half acre.

The house was built with two bedrooms and bathrooms, but was later expanded to its current five-bedroom, three-bathroom layout.

Though some parts of the house are probably in need of some aesthetic updates, there are some timeless features here too. The sunken living room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, period windows, a fireplace, and, under the stained glass window, a bay window seat.

The house holds a dining room, family room and kitchen, which still contains some retro-looking but “well-maintained knotty pine cabinetry,” like in a cabin in the woods.

Next to the house, there’s large flat area, “once the corral for horses,” a nod to the property’s equestrian past. Farther into the property, there’s also a paved patio and a kidney-shaped pool.

The property is listed for $699,900.

This two-bedroom house on 1406 Alameda Avenue is pretty much a little nugget of suburbia. Built in 1939, the two-bedroom is located in Glendale. Plus, it has a manageable lawn and a backyard pool—it might as well come with kids and a dog.

The interiors have been updated, most noticeably in the kitchen, where there are marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, and a butcher block-topped center island. The living room hosts a crop of windows. Flowing into those two spaces is a large dining room.

The lone bathroom features retro pink and red tile, and a separate shower and bathtub. In the rear yard, there’s a large pool, a covered patio, and a mural painted on the detached garage.

Last sold in 2009 for $525,000, public records show, the house is now asking $769,000.

216 WEST TERRACE STREET | ALTADENA 91001
Open House Saturday & Sunday 2-4pm

This charming cottage in the foothills was built in 1925, and it sits in a small community of similar cottages developed and designed by E.P. Janes, a businessman from New York.

The Altadena house’s charm extends indoors. Textured walls, wood floors, arched windows, and barrel and coved ceilings help the residence maintain a cozy cottage feeling that’s amplified by a fireplace and its little niche.

The dwelling holds three bedrooms, at least one of which appears to be in use as a workshop or office.

Victorian Masterpiece in Pasadena | LA Times Home of the Day

346 MARKHAM PLACE | PASADENA 91105
READ MORE! Featured on the LATimes.com, CurbedLA.com and
PasadenaNow.com

The Victorian Foster/Blankenhorn home is an enduring icon of turn of the century Pasadena grandeur. It has been sensitively updated and peppered with whimsical modern surprises.


Throughout the years this stunning Queen Anne Victorian has housed a mix of distinguished people. This list includes a railroad baron, a professional golfer, founders of the Valley Hunt Club and a celebrity radio DJ. This grand dame is visually captivating from the street, and deliciously mixes gabled, hipped and conical forms with boxed eaves, clapboard siding and a wraparound porch.


Lauded as “perhaps the most outstanding example of Victorian architecture still standing” by the Pasadena Star News, this unique property made its big screen debut in 1968’s blockbuster Yours, Mine and Ours, starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda.

In addition, this home features eleven-foot ceilings, a dramatic stained redwood staircase and round turret rooms with curved windowpanes. The back yard offers a series of super-sized lighted sculptures that invite conversation. Especially relevant is the no-expense-spared sound proofed music studio with separate vocal booth. This space could also serve as an office, art/dance studio, gym or guest room. Furthermore, the studio has plumbing connections for a possible future bathroom. Because of its contribution to the Markham Place Historic District, and its many historic features, the property is potentially eligible for Mills Act property tax reduction.

Offered at: $2,299,000 | More info: 346Markham.com

The Standish L. Mitchell Residence Featured on CurbedLA

Carefully preserved La Cañada home asking $5.85M appeared in ‘House Bunny’

Built in 1923, it has made a number of film appearances

632 BERKSHIRE AVENUE, LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE 91011
632Berkshire.com

Stately country-style home in La Cañada Flintridge built in 1923 for the family of Standish L. Mitchell, a former CEO of the Automobile Club of Southern California.

As it happens, Sumner Hunt and Silas Burns designed the 5,492 square-foot home. They also designed the club’s recognizable headquarters in University Park—as well as the Southwest Museum. (Hunt also designed the original plans for the Bradbury Building.)

If the home looks familiar, perhaps you’ve seen it in one of its many film appearances. Additionally, the residence has played prominent roles in the original In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin, The Good German, and The House Bunny. (Interiors subbed in for the Playboy Mansion).

Listed by: Brett Furrey & Esther Tan CalBRE# 01154312 & 00802807


But the home has plenty to offer beyond pedigree and IMDB credits.

Furthermore, Containing six bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, the expansive interior features original hardwood floors, fireplaces, crown moldings, and even a few era-appropriate bathroom fixtures.

 


Listing agent Brett Furrey tells Curbed the owners meticulously preserved the home’s original character, bringing in FK Design Group’s Marla Felber and Virginia Robinson Garden’s Tim Lindsay to assist with the updates. As a result the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.

 


Especially relevant is the extremely beautiful space around the house.

Located on 2.4 acres, the gated home is accessed by a long, winding driveway and surrounded by a forested, park-like yard. The back yard includes several patios and balconies for admiring the scenery. Additionally, an elegant swimming pool adds to Old World restrained luxury.
