I am going to call this the start of the open house season- we have a whole crop of lovely homes to see this weekend!
My first must see home is at 943 N. Isabel in the Rossmoyne area. If you are a character home purist- and you know who you are- you will appreciate the original light fixtures, vintage tile and restored doors and hardware. This Spanish lovely is a treat to see.
If you are craving a large yard for privacy, play and entertainment, 1705 Lila Lane in La Canada ins your clear choice. This ranch style home is located near the end of a small street off Hilliard and exudes the sort of quiet charm and quality that is irresistible. I predict this will be the “hot ticket” in town this week. Don’t miss it!
But my show stopper is, hands down, 1110 Wiladonda in La Canada. This contemporary architectural gem belongs in Dwell Magazine and I confess to pinning the heck out of this home on Pinterest. It is open, airy, warm wood floors and crisp modern finishes. I am pretty sure the person who lives here has a perfect life- or that is how my fantasy works.
There are a number of honorable mentions, as well! 3610 Shannon Way in the Canyons is a lot of house in a lovely area and 5302 Pineridge Dr. in La Crescenta is in the ever desirable Pineridge area. I love the contemporary Eichler-esque feel of these homes.
Almost all of these homes are open on Sunday, February 10, 2013 from 1 PM – 4Pm. Click the Full Glendale Open House List for individual open house times.
