A Glassell Park house nearly a decade in the making finally gets finished

The neighbors who live near4176 Toland Way spent most of the last decade watching and waiting to see when and if a home would ever be built on the Glassell Park lot near Mount Washington. Construction would  start and stop. Developers and real estate agents would come and go.  Building permits would  be issued followed by city orders to clean up debris.  Finally, a 2,100-square-foot house was built and sold for $529,000 in June.  The neighbors have now watched as the new owners have spent the summer landscaping the property and adding other personal touches. It’s a welcome sight  for a resident named Sean W., who has been tracking this real estate saga that began when building permits were issued in 2001. Said Sean via email:

“I live in the area and have watched this lot turn from a city abatement disaster to a pretty cool modern home. For the price it sold for it seems to be a good deal given that its all new …. The insides are better than the photos show and the new owners have put some nice horizontal fencing and the modern Neutra numbers and mail box. They just pulled the sod and started planting some feather grass today.  I wish I had a [down payment]  for  this house.”


  1. they have done a nice job making it look better. bravo for glassell park. nice car as well….

  2. nice, fits in well with the scandia way homes just above it. anyone know who the architect is on this property?

  3. There is a flip going on across the street. I wonder how much they will market it for. Thankfully someone put a house on this lot, it was an eye soar. I like what has been done to it post sale….

  4. I like this home. It fits in with the houses above it on Scandia Way. Looks like a young couple lives there. Not a bad pickup based on price per sq foot. Would look better in a gray exterior though…
