Crescenta ValleyHigh School
It was over 55 years ago that Richard and Charlotte found this special four bedroom and two bath Spanish on a quiet street in La Crescenta next to Pickens Canyon. Pride of ownership as well as a commitment to original authentic character. This home is a time capsule of a 1935 Spanish. Original hardwood flooring, windows, light fixtures, cabinets, doorknobs, brickwork and landscaping! Now Charlotte is an artist, a graduate of the Otis College of Art and Design and when Richard was away on business with JPL, she informs him that she is changing the garage into an Art Studio and when Charlotte puts her mind to it things get done and a brilliant art studio was born! Everything on this property has been touched by this artist, mosaic tile hardscape, clicker brick patio, wood beams and cabinets that were painted, stripped to their former magnificence and amazing tile work in the three-quarter bath. The entry leads to an elegant living room with beautiful, beamed ceilings, fireplace, original hardwood floors, and generous windows that bathe the home in natural light. The sunroom, next to the living room has direct access to the back brick patio. The dining room is formal as well. The kitchen is surprisingly large with a pantry and a marvelous Bertazzoni Italian stove. If these walls could talk, former owners include Hugh and Susan Hardyman (The Battle of El Moreno Street), Joseph and Margaret Hurley (nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Art Direction for the film Psycho) and the Leu's (JPL and Artist). Just a few other features included updated copper plumbing, central heating, drought resistant landscaping, laundry basement, tons of storage under the house, copper rain gutters and the award-winning schools of this sought-after neighborhood.
