In 1956, musician Candelario Mora, his wife Trinidad and their seven little ones became the second owners of this impressive four bedroom, one bathroom California Craftsman Bungalow perched atop a quiet hill in the desirable Aldama Heights neighborhood of Highland Park. Eleven children and sixty years of family gatherings and community involvement later, this home is ready for the next fortunate buyer to expand upon its original beauty.
Classic period details abound from the generous arroyo stone accented front porch, through the stunning foyer with built-in hall tree, to the knock-out of a living room boasting coffered ceilings with wood beam trusses, stained wainscoting, oak floors, built-ins and a stone fireplace. The formal dining room is a showstopper with an exquisite built-in china cabinet and enormous picture windows destined to frame the San Gabriels. The possibilities are endless with the two downstairs and two upstairs bedrooms. And the tiled kitchen, bordered by a light-filled office and ample laundry room, ushers you to the privacy and charm of the ample backyard getaway perfect for entertaining and star gazing.
Just blocks from the Gold Line, York Park, and the supper clubs, yoga studios, and vintage furniture and vinyl shops along York and Figueroa in red hot Highland Park, the location and charm cannot be beat.
There is work to be done and the owners have priced the home accordingly to sell in its present as-is condition. The owners’ hope is that the lucky buyer will love it as much as they have!
