This weeks theme for our DIGGS Open House Guide is Eclectic. The unenlightened and ignorant might assume Glendale lacks the texture of our urban neighbors…. and they would be wrong. We have all sorts of cool homes and styles that are all there for the discovery.
Everything has our unique little twist- we are not a city that needs to impress anyone else.

Whoa, stop the car! This house is the definition of cool! Perched on a little knoll in super desirable College Hills, this mid century ranch vibes with a desert infused, Rat Pack style that would make Frank Sinatra sing. Authentic period details like a flag stone floating fireplace and a semi circular, glass dining room are just part of this homes charm. But the views pretty much take the cake. The pictures are stunning and I think this is a must see home for the weekend.2910 Edgewick Rd, Glendale, $1,299,000 Saturday and Sunday 11 AM – 4 PM
From Mid Century to Modern… this contemporary home is nestled in the Chevy Chase Canyon, up into the country club area. Perhaps I should have named this week’s theme View Homes, because this soaring, light filled contemporary has sweeping canyon views. But, I love that we can go from one style to the next in just a few miles. I love the interesting roof line on this home as well as the ceiling treatments like roofing flashing. it keeps this home from being just a cliche modern stuck to a hillside.2435 Los Amigos, La Canada $1,079,000 Saturday and Sunday 2 PM – 4 PM
There is no denying this home is eclectic. It starts out like a crazy FarmHouse sitting on a rock foundation (which, it turns out, is just the finish). Inside, though you are socked in the eye with an arresting I Dream of Jeannie twisting wrought iron and bubble light fixture stair well. There is a full wet bar of tufted leather and a grass cloth covered Tiki Room. You really have to see it to believe… but I think this one is ridiculously cool.
