Timeless Glenview

Situated in the heart of Glenview, this inviting California bungalow combines archetypal design with modern upgrades. Built in 1923, the property features two bedrooms, one full bath and two plus rooms. Hardwood floors, distinctive molding, a stately fireplace and built-ins serve as hallmarks of the homes’ lineage.  Extensive bath and kitchen renovations deliver enhanced aesthetic appeal while structural and system upgrades lend functional value to discerning homebuyers.   

The main living level is comprised of a classic light-filled living room which seamlessly opens to an expansive dining room with built-in mirrored sideboard.  The adjoining eat-in kitchen features high end stainless steel appliances, textured tile flooring, soapstone countertops, recessed lighting, glass tile backsplash and cozy breakfast nook with peak-a-boo bay views. Designed for versatility, the split level floor plan affords a variety of space use options.  In addition to a main level bedroom, the upstairs bedroom opens to a sunny plus room ideal for an in-home office, sitting room or nursery. The recently remodeled bath is centrally located, providing convenient access to the sleeping quarters. The lower level plus room with closet and interior garage access could readily serve as a third bedroom, guest quarters, media or recreation room.

The front and rear yards have been creatively hardscaped to accent the profusion of plant varietals. Succulents, native grasses, verdant blooming vines, fruit trees and lush lawn are showcased beautifully by the natural stone patio, wood deck and ledgestone rock walls. Perched on an elevated lot with lovely hill outlooks, this charming property is conveniently located within blocks to Glenview shopping, restaurants and public transportation.
