1540 Virginia Ave, Glendale CA 91202
On NW Glendale's premier street, just blocks from Kenneth Village, is this tastefully updated character-rich Spanish Revival home that sits on a huge flat lot with a big grassy area and sparkling pool. The vintage charm of this classic home starts right at the front with the large arched wood windows, the rounded front entry with covered balcony above and the Spanish triple tile roof. Once inside and off the formal entry that has an original magnesite floor is the grand step-down Living Room that features a soaring vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, gleaming wood floors, a large fireplace anchoring the south wall and a charming built-in bookshelf. Across the foyer and through two arches is the bright formal Dining Room with wood windows and floors, more exposed beams and period inspired lighting. Originally updated by a previous owner and recently refreshed, the large island Kitchen has brand new quartz counters, brand new stainless double oven and gas range, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, plentiful storage, an attached Laundry Room with convenient driveway access and best of all this space opens directly into a big Gathering Space in the round with a two-story, exposed beam ceiling, large windows, a gas fireplace and direct access to the huge backyard. Also on the main floor are an updated Powder Room with outside access, two side-by-side Bedrooms, an updated 3/4 Bathroom, lots of linen and overflow storage and built-in workspace. Atop the grand staircase with original wrought iron rail are two more Bedrooms and a beautifully updated full Bathroom with dual-sink vanity and separate tub and stall shower. Together these three rooms create a wonderful primary suite up away from it all with space for a large sleeping room as well as a separate Office or Sitting Room. The front Bedroom has lovely views out over Virginia Ave and has access to the covered balcony, great for midday mindset breaks between Zoom calls. There is also lots of storage on this floor. In addition to the fabulous location of this property, the massive, flat yard has been perfectly planned with a large grassy play area closest to the house and the recently re-plumbed and re-plastered heated salt-water pool at the back of the lot. This spectacular home has the trifecta of excellent location, expansive property and classic tasteful character and style. Disney/Dreamworks close and well positioned to access the 2, 5 and 134 Fwys.
