Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

5163 Franklin Avenue in Los Feliz


Cloistered behind tall hedges along the southern edge of Laughlin Park sits this romantic nine-room Los Feliz villa c. 1924.

Cross the curved front door into a stunning double-height living room with fireplace, dramatic staircase, and library balcony.

Character details are in abundance with beamed ceilings, archways and Palladian windows along with timely updates creating a unique juxtaposition of old and new.

Dual staircases lead you to three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, as well as a 30’ balcony offering breathtaking downtown skyline views.

The first floor has a fourth bedroom, office, and ensuite bathroom. There is also a finished 250 square foot storage room beneath the living room.

A fabulous front deck and multiple outdoor patios provide the best in California living and entertaining al fresco.

Located in prime Los Feliz and moments from Griffith Park trails, concerts at the Greek, and Vermont and Hillhurst Avenues.

Known as ‘The House of a Thousand Years’ and built completely of reinforced concrete, this is truly a home where you can make memories that will last a lifetime!
