Estate sale, first time on market in 36 years. Midcentury Ranch cosmetic fixer with tons of character and potential on all usable .38 acre lot. On private lane off Crest Hwy, 4 blocks from 1000 square mile Angeles National Forest. Was original builder’s own home. Raised foundation, smooth ceilings, hardwood floors, brick fireplace, large formal dining room, sunroom, office, 2 laundry rooms (what can I say, he liked to do laundry). South-facing park-like yard gets all day sun, with 11 fruit trees (fig, orange, grapefruit, lemon, avocado, persimmon) and a mature redwood tree. You could build a monster on this lot (but please don’t). Connected to sewer, tile roof just sealed. 3 blocks to La Canada Country Club (golf and tennis) and minutes from enough hiking trails to last a lifetime. La Canada Flintridge feels like living in the country, with Blue Ribbon schools (all 3 rated 10 on GreatSchools), yet minutes from L.A. Zillow predicts 12.5% appreciation here next year.
