If you love the style and expansiveness of 1950s-era Ranch homes — especially ones that have been updated in a sympathetic manner — you probably already know about Glenbrook Valley. It’s the only historic district in the city that features Midcentury Moderns. And if you’re interested in homes in Glenbrook Valley, you’ll want to know about this 1957 number, which sits on a 12,392-sq.-ft. corner lot in the neighborhood’s northern section.

The grounds have a full sprinkler system. There’s a 500-sq.-ft. artist’s studio (or playroom) above the 2-car garage — and 2 covered carport spaces in front of it. The exterior (except for parts of the garage structure) is faced with Roman brick, and features ironwork details.

Inside the 3,363-sq.-ft. home you’ll find terrazzo flooring in the entry, original mahogany paneling still gracing the den, and the redone kitchen pictured above. Here the original mod cabinetry and hardware have been refinished; and the countertops and appliances both shine in Stainless, set off by an extensive backsplash in Modwalls tile. Note also: the Rejuvenation light fixtures over the sink, the Jenn-Air refrigerator, the Fisher & Paykel gas cooktop and 2-drawer dishwasher.

There’s plenty more to look at: You’ll find additional¬†pix on the property website, as well as more details. If you’d like to see the home for yourself, contact the listing agent indicated on the listing: Robert Searcy of Robert Searcy Properties.
