Glendale Real Estate
Homes for sale in Glendale range from smaller, relatively affordable houses to luxury homes, depending on the area. The easiest way to compartmentalize the neighborhoods is to use the 134 Freeway as a line of demarcation.
Neighborhoods in Downtown Glendale (south of the 134 Freeway) include Grandview, El Miradero, West Glendale, Moorpark, Citrus Grove, Adams Hill, Greenbriar, Tropico, and Mariposa. You’ll find more affordable homes and condominiums in these areas.
Hillside Communities (north of the 134 Freeway) include Verdugo Mountains, Whiting Woods, Oakmont, Sparr Heights, San Rafael Hills, Glenoaks Canyon, and Woodbury. These are the areas where you'll find many expensive, luxury homes. As you might expect, the higher a home sits on a hill, the pricier it can be.
The architecture of homes here reflects the era in which they were built. In the early 1900s, Victorian (Foursquare and Queen Anne) styles were popular. From the 1920s onward, Tudor, Spanish Colonial Revival, American Colonial Revival and Craftsman homes came on the scene followed by Italian Revival and Mediterranean homes in the 1930s.
In the 1940s, following WWII, many Mid Century Modern and California Ranch homes were built, and that trend continued until the 1980s when Contemporary homes took over.
