You'll find this Craftsman house at 5223 Shearin Avenue,
in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Here is a Google StreetView of the house:

knock on their door, or do anything else to disturb the residents. ]
Eagle Rock is between Pasadena and Glendale, about seven miles northeast

home earlier played a role in the original 1985 "Teen Wolf" movie,
starring Michael J Fox as a basketball-playing werewolf.)
