    Discerning home buyers will find many options in residences in Glendale’s El Miradero neighborhood. El Miradero boasts a number of early 20th century mansions and smaller homes built in styles ranging from Craftsman to Spanish, Mediterranean, and Mission Revival. The neighborhood is named after its landmark, the mansion of Glendale founding father Dr. Leslie C. Brand. El Miradero includes Brand’s Taj-Mahal-inspired entry gate and hilltop mansion, whose name means “The Viewpoint” in Spanish. Today the home is part of the Brand Library and Art Center, a cultural gem that is operated by the City of Glendale. Many local couples have been married on the grounds of El Miradero, which is considered somewhat of a “hidden secret” tucked in the Verdugo foothills. Brand Park, which includes extensive trails in the Verdugos and many recreational opportunities, is located at El Miradero’s north end.

    El Miradero’s streets and homes have the classic Southern California “look” with manicured green lawns and palm tree borders. Hillside homes have varied and unique custom architectural styles, and often enjoy commanding views of the city lights below. El Miradero has a small, attractive shopping district, Kenneth Village. Residents will find charming restaurants, small shops, and services within easy access. Streets are safe and very quiet, with a neighborly feeling. Glendale’s schools are excellent in general, and Balboa Elementary School in El Miradero is considered one of the top schools in the District.

    Glendale has experienced a renaissance since the 2000s and is a city combining the best of early California lifestyles and construction and 21st-century vibrant culture. From Disney’s Creative Campus to many city cultural initiatives and amenities, El Miradero is one of Glendale’s most liveable and family-friendly neighborhoods. With Dr. Brand’s fascinating and visionary history preserved by the City, El Miradero is a neighborhood with a “view” that echoes the past and looks forward to the future.
