:: The John Wesley Ellis Residence :: Circa 1883 :: Being the only verified surviving Bunker Hill home in Los Angeles, this extraordinary, 100% turn-key Stick Style Victorian rivals itself as one of the rarest properties in the entire City :: This legacy home began as what would later become the Good Samaritan Hospital and has benefitted from almost 140 years of thoughtful ownership and preservation. Instead of being demolished for new developments, the home was painstakingly moved to two different locations during its storied history, and now sits comfortably in the Angeleno Heights HPOZ. Now, at the peak of its care, the property has been entirely customized and restored by the current owner / designer, with the intent to marry the memorable with the modern. Every inch of the original structure has been revived, including the wooden floors, decorative mantels, turn of the century door hardware, pocket doors, stained glass and original bay windows. Each upgrade is the byproduct of astute vision, such as stained custom bathroom vanities and curated vintage lighting. A custom chef's kitchen with maple cabinetry, porcelain counters, reeded glass and matching Douglas fir wood flooring was built to seamlessly weave into the unique grandeur of the structure. A light-filled entry blanketed with Farrow & Ball wallpaper leads one into a lower oversized living room that flows into the dining, kitchen lower primary. Upstairs, 3 additional bedrooms, kitchenette and large deck allow for additional guests and entertaining. The home also comes with a spacious and very bright detached 1-bedroom unit with vaulted bow-trus ceiling beams. Perfect for guests, family, Au Pair or a healthy stream of income. Additional upgrades include a soapstone master bath, penny tile bathrooms, lighting and mirrors from Rejuvenation. The property also benefits from all new systems such as plumbing, wiring & electrical panel, roof, HVAC, sewer line and a chimney that was rebuilt to match the original. The foundation was also upgraded by previous owners. The home is a contributor to the HPOZ and is also a strong candidate for Mills Act tax savings. Buyer to verify. While many investors typically unravel the fabric of LA one house at a time with low grade materials, the Ellis residence clearly stands out as a top shelf restoration and is a rare transfer of legacy in one of the most historic neighborhoods in the City.
