In 1923, as California's love affair with Spanish Revival architecture was just blooming, this home emerged on Third Avenue in desirable Wilshire Park, adjacent to upscale Hancock Park. Nearly a century later, now part of an LA Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ), its character blends well with life today. Sweeping, shaded front steps rise to a rich wooden door that invites and intrigues. Inside, golden hardwood floors in the living room reflect light from multiple windows. By night, recessed lighting creates a soft ambiance everywhere. Vintage details include cutout windows over the arched kitchen doorway. In the remodeled, skylit kitchen, French doors open to a wide covered patio and a yard filled with fruit trees. Bedrooms are highlighted by a spacious upper-level primary suite with a lavishly tiled skylit bath. A detached garage completes the property. Loving care is both seen and unseen. The home's foundation was raised and central heat and air were installed. Both front and back gardens are drip irrigated for sustainability. Wilshire Park is mid-LA at its most iconic. It's moments from world-class museums like the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Craft Contemporary, the Hollywood Bowl, and the soon-to-open Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. This Spanish treasure is the ideal base for exploring it all and more.
