This 1927 Mediterranean Revival Estate sits on one of the most desirable streets in Glendale’s lauded Rossmoyne neighborhood. Surrounded by homes of significant architectural pedigree and character, 1211 Cortez Dr offers curb appeal rivaled only by its entertaining prowess. Meticulous landscaping and hardscaping flank the brick pathway that leads up to an inviting front patio. From the foyer, you can get a glimpse of the grand formal living room, the palatial yard, and the formal dining room. A stately study off the living room is lined with rich mahogany built-ins and a trio of eastward facing windows. Trace the original hardwood floors towards the eat-in kitchen that’s been outfitted with luxe Gaggenau appliances, including dual ovens. A service pantry off the kitchen leads straight out to a semi-private dining patio for your more intimate dinner parties. Upstairs, the spacious primary suite boasts two sets of French doors that gaze down toward the pool, a cedar-lined walk-in closet, and an en-suite bath with double vanities and a claw foot tub. The secondary suite at the other end of the hall comes equipped with its own walk-in closet, and a bright en-suite bath with Moroccan influences. The remaining three bedrooms offer ample space for family and guests, though they’re all apt to spend the majority of their time in the oasis of a backyard, enjoying the generous patio framed by palm fronds, bougainvillea, & palo verde, and relaxing in the saltwater pool and spa that’s surrounded by a bed of succulents. In the evening, retire downstairs to the basement, which has been finished into the most elegant and mature man cave imaginable- with a sauna and wine storage that’ll inspire you to show off (or grow) your collection. In addition to all of its aesthetic charm, the home also includes fully owned solar panels and a convenient detached 3-car garage. While 1211 Cortez Dr feels blissfully secluded, it offers quick and easy access to the essentials: Nibley Park, Fish King, and the 134 & 2 freeways.
