Property Details

  • Bedrooms: 3

Some properties demand your attention. But very few reward their owners with not only the bragging rights of owning a stately historic home just south of York Blvd in Highland Park, but also great savings. This grand, two story, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1906 Dutch Colonial Craftsman in the Highland Park historic overlay zone is part of the Mills Act Program, which means you are only assessed about one third of the normal property taxes each year.
Classic period details abound from the gambrel roof line, Dutch window shutters and generous front porch, through the stunning foyer with elegant wooden spiral staircase, to the spacious living room and formal dining room with high ceilings, enormous double hung picture windows, dark stained moldings, original Douglas fir floors, and decorative fireplace.
Up the curved staircase to the sunlit, show-stopper of a master bedroom with its wall of casement windows and his and hers closets. The second floor also features 2 additional good-sized bedrooms, and the vintage style remodeled bathroom with pedestal sink, marble hex and subway tiles, and bidet.
The kitchen boasting lovely ceramic floors, butcher block counter tops and a vintage Roper stove is flanked by a remodeled bathroom, laundry room, and a large family room with French doors that beckon to the wood deck and large flat yard beyond. The large gated carport off the alley and central location just blocks from the bustle of York and Figueroa Boulevards and the Metro Gold line, will ensure that the cars stay parked on the weekends!
Functional updates include new bolted foundation, 200 amp panel, copper plumbing, and HVAC.
Zoned R2 and, with gated off alley parking, this is just begging for you to build that ADU or art studio.
Own a piece of history in the heart of HLP!
