Built in 1910, this fully restored craftsman residence is set in the historic Garvanza neighborhood and retains the original vision held by the Architects Robert Train and Robert Williams. Train and Williams designed an array of noted Craftsman residences in the area as well as the 20th-century version of the Angels Flight Railway located in downtown Los Angeles. Tucked behind a privacy gate, this home has been thoughtfully renewed throughout with utmost attention to detail at every turn
Cherished by just three owners in the past 100 years, this home is set back from Avenue 66 leaving room for a magical mix of lighted paths, lush lawns and mature trees.
A formal entryway leads to a bright period living room with a fireplace that shows off its original Craftsman tile surround, screen and log grate.
Gleaming Douglas fir and oak flooring run throughout the home. All of the windows boast replated original hardware and restored original screens. The dining room features warmly stained wainscoting and glass-paneled pocket lead from the formal dining room out to the patio beyond.
The kitchen, overlooking lushly manicured greenery, features new stainless steel Viking appliances.
Upstairs, the master bedroom suite includes a walk-in closet and a serene sitting area.
Located just off of the master bedroom this sitting area, with wrap around hillside views, would make a great sleeping porch or studio!
The full size upstairs bathroom includes a pedestal sink, claw foot tub and built in storage.
Three more upstairs bedrooms provide generous closet space and plenty of extra storage.
Every inch of this 2,704 square foot home has been meticulously and sensitively updated and restored, from original cedar siding, Arroyo river rock and a new roof with rolled edging and built-in gutters to the new HVAC and copper plumbing systems.
The landscaping surrounding the home is highlighted by a wide variety of fruit trees, lush lawns and wide open spaces. The approximately 13,504 square foot lot is zoned R2 and could accommodate a pool/guest house/studio expansion.
