Quintessential LA living. This home is a treasure, having mostly stayed true to its architectural origins. This 3 bedroom 2 bath 1911 Craftsman beauty welcomes you with a lovely front yard and two olive trees, a fitting symbol of the peace and tranquility you'll enjoy on this quiet street in prime North-of-York Highland Park. Come up the wide front porch, complete with period-appropriate square tapered columns topped off with a sweet beadboard ceiling. As you enter the home, you're greeted by other Craftsman details such as original built-ins, custom woodwork, and a fireplace in the dining room. Through the grand arch, a large light-filled living room awaits, featuring a gorgeous picture window and numerous sash windows. Here you get the best of both worlds - fabulous light combined with privacy. The primary suite includes a sitting area, cedar-lined closet, brand new bathroom and French doors leading to your private Saltillo-tiled patio/balcony, where you can enjoy the sanctuary of the surrounding hillsides, replete with mourning doves and red-tailed hawks. The kitchen has a breakfast area, tiled counters and original cabinets with plenty of room for more. Off the kitchen is a light & bright service porch with steps down to a large 800 sf basement for tons of storage. The gated long driveway, 2-car garage plus 2-car carport provide plenty of off-street parking with room for an RV, pool or an ADU - your call. For its 100th birthday, this handsome home received thoughtful upgrades for modern living; Double-paned double-hung sash and casement windows and doors, bamboo flooring, solar panels with a 200A panel (paid off), HVAC, tankless water heater, solar tubes in bathrooms & skylight in the hall, roof, gutters, great insulation and ceiling fans throughout keep this home comfortable and cool, a patio off the primary suite with a bicycle garage/storage below and cement board and wood-shingled exterior give this home its classic Craftsman appeal. All of this and you're in prime Highland Park, close to all the happenings on York & Figueroa; Highland Park Bowl, Home State, Civil Coffee, Cafe Birdie, Good Housekeeping, The Lodge Room, Gold Line Bar, The York, Dotter, a Bloc, Highland Park Brewery, Cafe de Leche, Bob Baker's Marionette Theater, Ave 50 Park and much more. Close to the 2, 134, 110 & 5 freeways so you're just minutes away from DTLA, Pasadena, Silver Lake & Glendale, and anywhere you want to go.
