The most expensive home sold in Glendale, April 2019 was 1390 Greenmont Dr. This stunning architectural home sold for $1,888,000 in less than three weeks after being on the market the second time. This luxury Glendale home originally listed in 2018 for $1,995,000. After just 38 days on the market, the listing was put on hold in the MLS. Putting a listing on hold rather than cancelling has privacy benefits. Once a listing expires, or cancels in the MLS, the owner will received hundreds of solicitations from local real estate agents. Apparently there are services that sell these phone numbers to real estate offices and agents. They sell the home phone, cell phone, and sometimes get confused and sell ex-spouses contacts as well.
This listing was cancelled in February 2019 and then relisted with the same real estate agent. The “improved” list price was $1,849,000 and this Glendale beauty sold and closed in just thirty-nine days.
MLS Remarks Read: James Langenheim started as a draftsman for John Lautner and enjoyed a brilliant architectural career. He is best known for his Space Age design of the iconic LAX Theme Building. He accepted a residential commission in 1959 for this secluded parcel overlooking the Oakmont CC. Here he created this mid-century masterpiece of interlocking hexagons that open to a private yard with gorgeous mountain vistas. The hidden entry opens to a spacious six-sided living room flanked by original art piece wall panels, aircraft metal fireplace hood, and blown concrete ceiling.
The family and dining room features a vaulted ceiling, hooded fireplace, black terrazzo floors and a full wet bar with a clever pass through to the custom chef’s kitchen. The large master suite is appointed with a stone fireplace, two dressing areas, and marbled tiled bath. The other two bedrooms with ensuite baths are preserved originals as well. Langenheim returned in 2007 to design the guest house with a hexagonal office, a large bedroom suite and a private sauna. Upgrades include: updated plumbing and electrical panels, two HVAC systems, and solar power. Features: hexagonal pool and patio cover, 3 car carport with electrical charger, full house water filtration, and a hidden phone booth.
