Description

***Eligible for interest rate in the 5% range*** This spectacularly charming 1942 storybook ranch home features gingerbread trim and dovecotes - evocative of the famous Mellenthin birdhouse homes. This home looks like itcame to life out of a beautiful fairytale...maybe it'smeant to be yours? The home also features a beautiful restored octagonal diamond glass window, the original front door with intact speakeasy, and beautiful wood siding. Beyond the charming facade, you're graced with a lovingly renovated home with soaring 20 foot plus ceilings, large skylights and an open and airy living area. Walking into the home provides a reaction nothing short of stunned silence, as you take in the high ceilings, the sunlight streaming in and the warm solid oak flooring warming the space. The beautiful wood beams separate the vaulted living room, featuring the perfect indoor outdoor flow via bifold doors that open up much of the west wall - perfect for sunset viewings. The dining room is ready for those dinner parties you throw, featuring a bar area with bar sink so you can whip up your favorite cocktail. The perfect kitchen showcases the stunning Ilve stove and gorgeous subtly-veined countertops set against the chocolatey warm cabinets. Handmade raw brass sconces warm the space. The double casement window is perfect for serving friends enjoying the out-of-doors. With four bedrooms, you have plenty of space to spread out or provide for multiple work-from-home spaces. Ample storage space abounds, from the coat closet to the floor-to-ceiling original linen closet built-in. The bathrooms are stunning and unique, ready to provide sanctuary to you and your guests. The primary bedroom feels like a vacation retreat, featuring two separate walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, bifold doors that perfect frame your very own persimmon and lemon trees, and the most luxurious bathroom with sunlight streaming into the private soaking tub. Updates include new roof, updated electrical, updated plumbing, car charging outlet (EV ready!), fire sprinklers and central HVAC with digital thermostat. This is one of our favorite neighborhoods in Los Angeles : gorgeous and peaceful, full of vibrant history and warm neighbors. We love local favorites like Orleans & York (amazing po' boys!), Earle's Hot Dogs and Tak's Coffee Shop. In downtown Leimert Park, enjoy Harun Coffee, Azla vegan, All Chill Ice Cream and special events like the Leimert Park Jazz Festival. Just around the corner, the Baldwin Hills mall features a Saturday Farmer's Market and our fave place for happy hour with delicious artisanal cocktails - Post & Beam. You are minutes away from the new Whole Foods on Jefferson. Just a hop and a skip away, you have so many fun options in West Adams: enjoy Highly Likely Cafe, Michelin-featured Cento Pasta, charbroiled deliciousness at Miz La La, fabulous meals at Alta, great wine at Adams Wine Shop, Mian noodle, Bee Taqueria, enjoy a firepit-side dinner at Johnny's on Adams, amazing cauliflower queso at Chulita (you won't be able to stop thinking about it!) and more. Minutes away, enjoy local favorites such as: Hilltop Coffee (yummy coffee - try the beignets!), Jon & Vinny's/Helen's Wines, Simply Wholesome, Puerto Nuevo (fun breakfast option!) and more. Sprouts is 15 minutes away. You're also just minutes from the heart of Culver City - ready to enjoy Hi-Lo Liquor, Cognoscenti Coffee, The Culver Steps with Erewhon and Salt 'n Straw. Just a little further, have fun on the 13 mile Park to Playa bike trail (from the Baldwin Hills Parklands to the Pacific Ocean!) or explore the 400 acre Kenneth Hahn Park, with bonus 360 degree views of LA. You're just blocks from both the Expo and Crenshaw train lines with the latter building a connection directly to the airport. All this in a vibrant neighborhood pocket just 2min from DTLA, 15 min from Culver City, and 20 from the beach! Designed and staged by The Art of Houses.
