Awash in rustic charm
On the market for the first time in five decades, this cutie-patootie can be found on La Cañada’s aptly named Palm Drive, about a mile northwest of Descanso Gardens.
Built in 1947, the Western-flavored ranch house is situated a fair distance back from the street at the end of a red brick path lined with colorful flowers. At 1,219 square feet, the two-bedroom, one-bath abode may be petite in size, but it’s big on rustic charm. Among its appealing original attributes are beamed ceilings, a brick fireplace, steel-framed casement windows, lath and plaster walls, built-in bookcases and hutches, period tile, and knotty pine paneling and cabinetry.
Per the listing, the home sits on a 7,440-square-foot lot with mature Deodara pines, orange, and other trees, along with two additional storage buildings, “each built to code.” 4549 Palm Drive is listed with Peter Bissias of Dilbeck Estates for an asking price of $955,000.
