I’m so in love with this back yard.  For realz.  But the 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1500 square foot home wraps up exactly what we love about living in the San Fernando Valley.  And all in a convenient location – and price.

My dear friend Brad Harry has been gracious enough to let me sit open houses at this home, and I couldn’t possibly have been more excited.  For starters, this yard.  SWOON.  I can spend an entire day just lounging by the pool daydreaming.  Not that I get much time to lounge and daydream… but still.  A girl can day dream about day dreaming, right?Secondly, I love the location.  You see, when I first moved to Los Angeles, many a moon ago, I lived in this neighborhood. I still have friends in this neighborhood.  So what’s better than spending a day amongst friends?

Just a few blocks away from schools, CSUN, and the Northridge Mall, this neighborhood was originally built with 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom  mid century homes in the early 1950s.  The quintessential mid-century modern design, most of these homes feature large lots which is AWESOME.  And the majority of the winding sleepy streets do not go straight through, which means less cross traffic.

The particular homeowners of 19418 Blythe did several updates, including the garage door.  The majority of the neighborhood was originally built with carports – which is what Blythe actually has – but the garage door gives privacy.  Isn’t it cute?
Walk up to the front porch and enter into the great room.  And when I say great… I mean HUGE.  These homeowners added on a family room to the dining portion that has sliders opening to the gorgeous back yard.
Enter into the sitting room or formal living space.  Looks like a great place for a book to me!
Mirrored walls separate the dining space from the family room.  Fit the entire family for a large dinner party!
The addition of the family room gives a great place to chill out while hosting parties.  And the sliders allow for indoor/outdoor flexibility.
The spaces flow into each other.  Notice the beautiful dark wood floors and the open beamed ceilings?  And I love that the kitchen has been opened up from the traditional galley from the original design.
The kitchen bar opens up the entire space so you can watch the kiddos or talk to your guests while preparing your feasts.
…And the upgraded granite counter tops are totally gorgeous.

To the right, find direct access to the carport.

The laundry room is complete with sop sink and TONS of cabinetry.
On the other side of the home is the personal rooms.  The master suite is the nearest door on the left, followed by bedroom 2.  Bedroom 3 is directly across from bedroom 2 and the hall bathroom is the nearest right side doorway
Down the hallway is a fantastic closet for all your linens, winter coats, and other hidden needs.
The master suite over looks the backyard and has those fantastic tall ceilings.
The master suite houses an ensuite 3/4 bathroom and walk in closet.  These homes were originally built without the bathroom/closet so this is a huge perk for this neighborhood.
The master bath shower
The master bath is a huge asset for this neighborhood.
Bedroom 2 overlooks the beautiful backyard
A full bath in the hallway for the ancillary bedrooms and guests.
Bedroom 3 overlooks the front yard.  It is identical to bedroom 2 which is directly across the hall.
And here’s where the true value lies!  Look at that yard!  At over 10,700sf, this lot is HUGE!  With a beautiful pool that has been recently replastered, a large play area that is low maintenance, and a great patio to throw those fantastic parties, it is true So Cal living at it’s finest.  This is where you’ll be.  And so will your family and friends.  Who needs to go out to the parks when you have this at your house?!
The large patio overlooking the pool is a great place to dry off after a dip in the water.  Or have an alfresco dinner.  Or enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings.  Or catch up with an old friend.  The possibilities are endless.
The low maintenance play area is fantastic and drought resistant. For those of you wanting grass, it’s an easy place to have a huge grassy area for your kiddos and pets. Note the back of the open carport on far left.  Perhaps this is where you’ll find yourself hanging out on those hot days.
And that’s 19418 Blythe Street!  Priced at $449,500, there’s few 1500 square foot homes in the Valley that offers so much with a yard like that.  To schedule your tour of this fantastic home, give me a call.  We’ll go take a look together so you can see what is so great about this space.
