Home of the Week: Spanish Revival in Glendale’s Historic Rossmoyne District

1408 Cordova Ave., Glendale, CA 91207
Published on Feb 20, 2024

On a treed knoll over the Rossmoyne historic district, this 1929 Spanish Revival property is an elusive treasure: a beautifully maintained and unspoiled piece of early 20th century architecture. Set above the street on a cornered lot hosting a majestic Deodar cedar tree, this home boasts the hallmarks of Spanish style, including a clay mission tile roof, hand-troweled stucco walls, carved wood beams, iron work and casement French windows.

Two brick paths bordered by fragrant herbs and flowering plants meet at the covered front patio and beautiful carved wood entry door.

Inside, the home is a delight, with terracotta and hand-painted Spanish tiles and pigmented Venetian plaster walls, handcrafted in a limestone block pattern.

The generous living room is defined by special original details, including the Batchelder fireplace surround and hearth, vaulted ceiling with hand painted wood beams, and grand arched picture window with grillwork, echoing the front door.

Just opposite the entry, the dining room boasts lustered cork flooring, beamed ceiling, and casement windows which open to welcome the relaxing sounds of the fountain just outside.

Outdoor spaces here are truly lovely, offering citrus and olive trees, every color of bougainvillea and rose garden.

Dining leads to the chef’s kitchen with stainless steel Viking appliances, inset cabinetry, elegant stone countertops and flooring, and Batchelder style tile details. Don’t miss the butler’s pantry with cookbook shelves, additional storage and second refrigerator — this time a Sub-Zero.

Finally, the interior public space includes a sunny family room with wet bar, another lovely decorative tiled fireplace, full bath with charming original tile work, as well as access to the Saltillo-tiled patio shared with the living room.

Three bedrooms upstairs enjoy views, two with balconies – from the primary bedroom’s balcony and primary bath, the vista is gorgeous.

One additional bedroom suite with 3/4 bath is downstairs, and offers direct access to a sheltered patio with rustic bench hearth fireplace.

Outdoor spaces here are truly lovely, offering citrus and olive trees, every color of bougainvillea and rose garden. The backyard in particular is a sanctuary, with mature hedges and cascading fountains – this is the ultimate in privacy and quiet. With an attached 2-car garage (a real amenity!) and quick access to shopping, freeways and the neighborhood’s beloved Nibley Park, this is a home to love.
