If you are looking for an affordable opportunity to break into the Glendale market, this may be the one for you. Charming cottage with cute curb appeal, two decent sized bedrooms, hardwood and tile flooring, granite countertops, and a fireplace. Sliding doors off the kitchen lead to a backyard perfect for entertaining. The single garage has been redone into a work space but can be easily converted back if the new buyer chooses. For starter families with small children, location is ideal as it sits right across the street from Mark Keppel Elementary and Toll Middle School – How convenient!
