Sat Jun 10th 12pm,

This unique Spanish-style home is located in the highly desirable Adams Hill neighborhood of South Glendale. Situated atop a hill, it boasts stunning 180-degree views of the city and mountains and offers complete tranquility on a quiet street. This home needs some work but represents a huge opportunity for potential value creation, as it is surrounded on three sides by undeveloped lots. The main level features a large, high ceiling, open plan living room and kitchen with a breakfast nook, plus two bedrooms and one bath. Currently, the property is zoned R1 as a legal non-conforming split level with two guest quarters studios downstairs with separate entrances. The two downstairs studios have been converted into one large, light-filled open-air one-bedroom unit. With two French doors leading out to an end-to-end outdoor deck, it’s the perfect place to enjoy beautiful endless sunset and city lights views. This home also features a basement with additional storage, area for a creative workshop, and a laundry area including washer and dryer. (Exterior stairs to the basement are currently unfinished.) Buyers can enjoy the property as is or can convert it back to its original state with two studio units downstairs, or can legally permit it as a single-family home with an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) downstairs - the choice is yours (buyer to verify). This property is truly one-of-a-kind, and you won't find many with views or privacy like this in Glendale. Don't miss this great opportunity!
