Views, location, and an indoor-outdoor style of living make this Mt. Washington residence unique to the area. Best-described as a hilltop hide-away, this 1,876 sq.ft. romantic Spanish charmer features ornamental iron work, smooth-coat plaster, walls of doors and windows (to see the explosive views, of course), outdoor entertaining areas, and a pool with ample deck space for lounging. Enter the homeâ€™s expansive living/dining area and experience what this house is all about: comfort. Architectural curves and archways make you feel as though youâ€™re exploring an early-California mission. A cozy fireplace anchors the living room (but can also be enjoyed from the dining area). Sliding doors bring the lush outdoors inside and provide additional usable space on its deck. Hang out on your deck or dine al fresco with stars above and city lights below. Inside, the dining area is large enough for holiday gatherings (Thanksgiving is coming!) but is also a great place for quiet dinners for two. Steps away from the dining area is the beating heart of this home; its chefâ€™s kitchen with a massive center island. This well-designed room provides plenty of surfaces (including a breakfast bar) for prep/cooking, cabinets for storage, and room to have all your guests hang for pre-meal cocktails. Enjoy the outdoors (again) while accessing the kitchenâ€™s balcony, which features views of the city AND of your own pool. There is also an office nook and a powder on this level of the home.
Upstairs are the homeâ€™s restful bedrooms, including a hotel-suite-style master bedroom. The large room has dead-on views of city lights from the bed. Also, the room is large enough for additional seating or a crib. The masterâ€™s bathroom has two sinks, a step-in rain shower covered in tumbled travertine, and a walk-in closet. A guest room is the perfect size for long-term guests and has access to its own private balcony. Another small room is on this floor (public records call it a 3rd BR) which could be an office, play area, or sleeping area.
The homeâ€™s 22,000+sq.ft. lot makes you feel like youâ€™re living on a natural preserve while being only a few minutes from all the area has to offer. Itâ€™s a hiker/runner/dog-walker paradise! Benefit from one of Zillowâ€™s highest-rated elementary schools (TK). And only 15min. to/from DTLA. BONUS ALERT: Garage has been converted to a bonus space and there is a â€œbasementâ€ with additional sq.ft. (no permits).
