There’s something wonderfully beachy about this Streamline Modern home built in 1936, and that’s special, considering the house is in non-coastal Glendale.
The house has been restored, and though obviously updated in spots like the kitchen and the bathrooms, the residence retains period touches here and there, like the porthole-style window near the entry, and the curving corners of the dining nook in the living room.
The Streamline Moderne style, meant to evoke the sleek industrial designs of the 1930s, including ocean liners, carries through the house, which has a series of staircases and multiple levels that give off a nautical look.
The house’s outdoor space is certainly a perk. The private patio off the kitchen is practically a secret garden, with lush plantings and concrete pavers.
The two-bedroom house has a lower level that could be a vast master suite on its own, or be put to use as a grand family room, suggests the listing copy. Doors off this space also open onto a lovely green space.
The sellers of the camera-ready Glendale residence are the one-time owners of a company that made props and set designs for movies and television. They are asking $1.295 million for the property.
