Glassell Park retreat hovers above the city

This charming Spanish home in Glassell Park perfectly captures the beauty of Southern California living.

Bright sunlight permeates nearly every room to create a warm, airy and inviting environment.

A wonderful outdoor terrace off the dining room is the perfect indoor/outdoor space to dine al fresco, enjoy the sunset and admire the San Gabriel Mountains.

The delightfully updated kitchen flows effortlessly from the dining room and to an adorable breakfast nook.

The spacious living room with original hardwood floors and brick fireplace is the perfect place to gather and create memories. The bedrooms are spacious and private.

The backyard is a private oasis with a large patio, a tiled countertop for outdoor cooking, and mature fruit trees.

While only minutes from all of the action on York, Figueroa and Downtown, the property is nestled high enough in the hills to create the ambiance of a peaceful retreat. 4214 Barryknoll Drive, Glassell Park is listed at $989,000 by Brad Holmes & Joanna Suhl.
