"A Lovely Hideaway"

Verdugo Woodlands stretches out to the west of Highway 2, north from Verdugo Park to the southern edge of the Oakmont Country Club. The eastern edge of Brand Park forms its western border.

As with other part of this northern area of Glendale, about 2/3 of the homes were built before 1960, with a quarter dating from the baby boom 1950’s. This means that you will find a number of Ranch style homes on these winding, shady streets. Along the hills near the Glendale Freeway, Mission Revival is the preferred style with homes perched along sunny streets with few trees and chaparral covered hillside as back drops. Far up into the hills as you near the edges of Brand Park, the streets become increasingly woody with drooping branches and pendant willows—earning the areas name.

North Verdugo Way is the main drag through this neighborhood though it is mainly used as an alternative to the Glendale Freeway by speeding motorists—definitely not conducive to pedestrians.

The neighborhood definitely does not lack in parks and recreation areas, having two within its borders, Brand Park just to the west and a sports area just over the freeway to the east.

Overall this is a great secluded neighborhood in which to hide-out from the troubles of the city, but still close enough to the major commercial area where you can make it to work in less than an hour (as 90% of locals do) or to catch a movie when you feel like it.
