This stately Craftsman in Glendale is looking for a very lucky new owner. The seven-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home was built in 1913 and appears to have been immaculately maintained over the last 104 years.

The home was designed by architect Charles E. Shattuck (who also designed the Boyle Heights bungalow that was home to cosmetics maven Max Factor during the 1920s). Its many lovely features include beamed ceilings, built-in shelving, crown moldings, and a Batchelder tile fireplace in the living room.

Known as the Toll House (no, not that Toll House), the home was built for banker Charles Toll and his wife, Elanor, an educator. It later became one of the first properties to be designated as a historic resource by the city of Glendale in 1977. As such, it’s eligible for tax benefits under California’s Mills Act.

At 6,714 square feet, the residence is quite spacious, with a library, formal dining room, and fireplace-equipped game room. The roomy master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with marble flooring and a clawfoot tub.

The gated property measures 1 acre and includes a long circular driveway and three-car garage. Adjacent to the main residence is an 850-square-foot guest house, while a pool sits behind the property.
