MLS remarks read: Atomic Ranch enthusiasts alert! This classic 1960 4-bedroom ranch home is almost entirely original. It offers a unique opportunity to live in a spacious one-story ranch on over a half acre lot (with a 4-car garage) in one of the best neighborhoods in La Crescenta. Wow! The true soul of this ranch for mid-century aficionados is the fantastic wood-panelled family/dining room with its vaulted ceiling, fireplace wall of Palos Verdes stone, and cascade of period appropriate lights suspended from one side. This vast room, which has 3 distinct areas, extends from the front of the house to the back. The house is oriented around the backyard and has a covered patio to take advantage of its privacy and our balmy climate. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, it overlooks the Pickens Canyon wash and has a distant view of the mountains beyond. Be sure to check out the floor plan and features list in Documents. There is so much to love about this home treasured by the same family since 1969.
