New, 27 comments

Longtime readers may recall this ye olde stone cottage--Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Landmark #373--from its previous appearance on Curbed back in 2008. Located in Highland Park on what was once known as "Professor's Row," it was built in 1892 as a residence for Occidental College instructors by Elizabeth Young Gordon, the wife of the school's vice president. Though the four-bedroom, one and three-quarter-bath house has been added on to and updated in recent years, the listing would much rather talk about its "original" features. There's its "original 1892 moldings - never painted," the "original mural on dining room wall," and "original oak floors," not to mention an "original fireplace," the "original high character windows," and the "front original patio made of Batchelder tiles." Last sold three years ago for $589,000, the 2,317 square foot residence is now asking $659,000.
