IMPRESSIVE “ORIGINAL OWNER” RANCH STYLE POOL HOME located in Burbank’s highly sought after “Rancho Adjacent” neighborhood (between Verdugo & Alameda). Situated on a over-size 7,627 sq. ft. lot (per Assessor), this large 2BD, 1 full BA custom home measures just under 1,500 sq. ft. (1,499 sq. ft. per Assessor) and exudes all of the charm and pride of ownership you would expect from an owner who has resided and raised a family in the same home for more than 64 years!

Great first impressions abound with the home’s expansive lot frontage and well tended landscape leading to the front entry, as well as a handy side kitchen entry off the covered carport. Upon entering the home, you are immediately struck by the larger than average formal living room that features an expansive plate glass picture window, mantled fireplace surrounded by a wall of brick (with gas starter), smooth ceilings with recessed lighting and hardwood floors under the carpeting. In 1972, a Dining area was added complete with a built-in china cabinet, wet bar with blender port & wine refrigerator and sliding glass door access to a covered Patio, yard and pool areas. The space was enhanced with handsome tile flooring which extends into the adjacent concealed laundry area that also has a second sliding door out to the rear yard and pool. Also in 1972, the spacious eat-in Kitchen was remodeled and boasts simulated wood laminate flooring, recessed lighting, an abundance of cabinetry and storage, along with a dishwasher and electric oven & cooktop. A cozy breakfast area provides the perfect spot for morning coffee and conversation. The Kitchen is a bit dated, with some period built-in “kitchen ameneties” i.e. coffee maker, can opener and toaster. However, the space is very functional and would be an absolute showstopper with a complete remodel or perhaps simply a few modest updates! (The Refrigerator is included in sale without warranty.)  Both Bedrooms are very spacious and offer abundant mirrored sliding door closet space, fresh paint, plantation shutters, ceiling fan and hardwood floors under the carpet. The hallway between the two bedrooms offers two storage spaces and is where you’ll find the Full Bathroom with updated tiled counter and flooring along with a shower over the tub.

The rear yard is a Entertainer’s Dream, with an expansive and totally private pool/spa, yard and patio spaces. The solar heated pool and spa have been well maintained and are surrounded by ample brick accented decking and “lounge space.” But unlike most pool homes, the rear yard is NOT all pool and concrete, as there are two nice grassy areas for pets and kids, in addition to flower beds and landscaped areas all enhanced  by handsome vinyl privacy fencing. The two-car detached garage has been converted to a bonus/music room and is being offered “AS IS.” The garage door is sealed and hardware removed, but the space has a window wall AC unit, “sound proofing” insulation on the walls and in the attic and a newly installed window. The space is approximately 400 sq. ft. and could be an ideal candidate to be converted to a legal Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), with an appoximate 10×20 concrete pad extending behind the garage to possibly max out a potential ADU. The City of Burbank allows an ADU be no larger than 500 sq. ft. – please check with Burbank’s Planning Dept. for more information.

Additional Improvements/Updates: Central air conditioning and heating; newer vinyl windows throughout the home (expect the front two kitchen windows); copper plumbing including the mainline to the street; brick accented concrete front driveway and carport; newer vinyl fencing & gate and automatic sprinklers for both the front and rear yards.

This is indeed a RARE BURBANK OFFERING – A custom built, original one owner home with a spectacular rear yard and pool located in one of Burbank’s premier neighborhoods! Walking distance to Burbank’s famous Tallyrand restaurant, Jordan Middle School, public transportation and area shopping. Please call Dan today with any questions and to arrange a private showing of this very special Burbank ORIGINAL!
