Property Description

Welcome home to Mt. Washington. Serene and expansive 1924 California Craftsman Bungalow perched on a hillside corner lot with mature trees, drought tolerant plantings, and a stepstone path to a raised front stoop. Eye-popping entryway flooded with natural light showcases a striking wall mural, hand-painted by previous homeowners who were local artists. From the entry foyer you can take the staircase down to the lower level 400+ sq ft of permitted additional space to be used as a third bedroom, studio, or office with its own outdoor space. The main floor opens into an oversized living/dining area with beautifully restored original hardwood oak floors, a decorative earth-toned fireplace and a wall of oversized windows to highlight the views of the rolling hills and the San Gabriel Mountains. Two generous-sized bedrooms have refurbished double hung windows, streaming morning through afternoon sunlight. Charming second bedroom has an en-suite bath with a clawfoot tub. The calming and cheerful hall bath has a Moroccan patterned ceramic tile. A warm and inviting kitchen features stainless steel appliances, ample cabinetry and a lovely breakfast nook with views. The private backyard is perfect for both everyday enjoyment or entertaining; a multi-tiered deck offers plenty of options to grill, dine, sunbathe or just hang out. The property is gated with a long private driveway leading to a detached one-car garage, perfect for storage or hobby space. An unbeatable location with access to Mt. Washington’s nature and community, yet equally close to all the wonderful shops & restaurants on Figueroa & York Blvd.
