Tucked between Forest Lawn cemetery and Glassell Park, Glendale’s pocket neighborhood of Adams Hill is stocked with an abundant array of vintage homes built between the 1920s and the 1960s. One of the first streets in the neighborhood to be developed was Marion Drive, where you’ll find this charmer.

Built in 1926, the hillside cottage at 1516 Marion Drive is the former residence of ex-Disney actress Peyton List, whose renovation of the property was documented in 2017 by Architectural Digest.

Measuring 1,525 square feet, it holds three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a bonus office space within two levels, and features hardwood floors, casement windows, and a great room with lofty ceilings, a decorative plaster fireplace, and an antique wagon-wheel chandelier. Outside, there’s a terraced backyard with drought-resistant landscaping, a private patio off the master bedroom, and a detached two-car garage with view deck.

The property is listed with Carin Hoffman of Diggs at an asking price of $1.149 million. Open house is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The home is perched high above the street, past the detached two-car garage.
