1950s Time Capsule in L.A.’s Glassell Park Asks $889K

Price: $889,000

Location: Glassell Park, Los Angeles

Last sold in 2007, 2865 Palmer Drive sits a little east of the 2 freeway in the hills of Glassell Park, which is about ten miles north of Downtown L.A. The 1956 property is a five-minute drive from the Glassell Park Recreation Center’s tennis and basketball courts, baseball diamond, picnic tables, and barbecue pits, and ten minutes from neighboring Eagle Rock and Highland Park, each of which has its own cluster of restaurants and bars. Just last month, the state approved $10 million in funding for the design and construction of Paseo del Rio, a one-mile greenway along the eastern bank of the L.A. River, the first project in a series that will ultimately result in 100 acres of green space in the Glassell Park community.


Specs: 3 beds, 2 baths, 1,304 square feet, 0.11 acres

Perched atop a two-car garage, the hillside residence doesn’t appear to have changed much since the Eisenhower era. Among its well-preserved features are lofty beamed ceilings, a full-height brick fireplace, walls of glass, a vintage Western-Holly cooktop, and pastel tile in the kitchen and bathrooms. The three bedrooms are on the small side, but each one comes with ample closet space. You’ll also find several outdoor spaces, including a covered front balcony, rear covered dining patio, and small tiered garden. Take a virtual tour here.
