Affectionately known as the ‘Yellow House on the Hill’,
this truly iconic residence is available for a once in a generation opportunity...
We proudly welcome you home to 301 W. Brookdale Place
Custom built in 1939 for Dr. G. Sellon, a prominent local doctor at the time,
the home embodies an understated Monterey inspired architecture.
Positioned on this elevated and expansive, DOUBLE LOT of 13,000 sq feet,
the property and residence really are the landmark of Brookdale Place.
A sun-drenched front porch provides tranquil tree top views and vistas of the Disneyland fireworks with Santiago Peak in the distance. Upon entering, you will be welcomed by a most gracious foyer highlighted by the curved stairway with original wrought iron railings. Throughout the residence, a perfect blend of preservation and upgrades are found. Gracious living is evident throughout with warm and inviting public spaces hosting wood flooring,
crown molding and original casement details. The formal living room hosts a
stately gas fireplace and impressive picture window looking to the south and the Jacaranda tree tops. Family dinners and holidays alike will be fondly remembered in the formal dining room with multiple French doors opening onto the sunny front porch. Entirely remodeled and re-imagined, in 2006, the chef’s quality kitchen is spacious and beautifully appointed with solid Cherry wood cabinetry, granite counters and SS appliances including a Wolf range.
A farmhouse sink and breakfast bar complete the kitchen.
Adjacent to the foyer you'll find a warm and inviting family room with convenient home office niche with built-in desk and cabinetry. A remodeled full bathroom completes the main floor.
Upstairs the charm continues with understated details; curved walls, stained glass window and original paneled doors. The primary suite is generously sized featuring a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom that enjoys original tile vanity and bathtub surround.
On the east side of the home three comfortable secondary bedrooms are found,
all well appointed and sharing access to a charming and updated ¾ bathroom.
Commanding an impressive oversized corner lot, the backyard is both a retreat and a pleasure to entertain in. Complete with built in BBQ, flagstone accented in-ground spa and charming custom-built stone benches, punctuated by perfectly placed boulders.
A mature, and arborist maintained, Carob tree is the highlight of the yard complimented by a
beautiful and thoughtful landscape. The prodigious avocado tree
welcomes the way to a terraced vegetable garden, and grape vines.
The garage currently serves as a bonus room, but can easily be converted back into a functioning garage. Attached to the garage is a large laundry room
and a convenient workshop or storage room.
Buyers are encouraged to investigate if the property is a candidate for
the Mills Act as well, potentially savings on property taxes annually.
An opportunity such as 301 Brookdale Place is genuinely a once in a
20+ year offering, do not wait to personally view this legacy home – Welcome Home.
