The longtime Glendale home of late USC Trojans baseball coach Rod Dedeaux has sold for $2.2 million.
Built in the 1940s, the single-story Traditional sits on about three quarters of an acre in Northwest Glendale with a pool, a pool house with an indoor spa, a sports court, formal gardens and fruit trees.
Hardwood flooring, leaded glass windows and wainscoting are a common theme throughout the 4,000-square-foot home, which has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Among living spaces is a formal dining room, a den/office and a family room with a wet bar. The master suite features a fireplace.
Large entertaining spaces, a wisteria-wrapped pergola and a pool highlight the outdoor spaces. A motor court marks the entrance to the home.
Dedeaux, who died in 2006 at 91, and his wife, Helen, purchased the home in the early 1960s, records show. The property came on the market earlier this month for the first time in more than 50 years and sold for $100,000 above the asking price.
Michael Mandekic of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and Judy Schlegel of RE/MAX Tri-City Realty co-listed the property. Hamlet Adarnian of Hall & Chambers represented the buyer.
Dedeaux piloted the Trojans to a record 1,331 victories, 11 College World Series titles and 28 conference championships in 45 seasons as manager. In 1999, he was named the coach of the century by Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball.
