Per the Listing: "High ceilings throughout and stunning views combine with rooms of artful contours to make this large Contemporary Mediterranean a showplace. Birdsong rises from the canyon below as hawks and starlings swoop past oversized windows. In the distance the San Gabriel Mountains rise like a backdrop in a Cezanne. No utility wires here between you and the beauty. The house is ideal for entertaining with the dining room positioned as a mezzanine from the living room. Updated flooring includes elegant tile and beautiful hardwood. There are two walk-in closets big enough to hold storage dressers. An exterior stairway leads to a separate finished bonus space for an office, yoga den or ~~~? Downtown LA is close, and Mt. Washington Elementary and the Gold Line are minutes away."

In no way are we saying the interior of this house can't use some upgrades -- specifically the tile in the kitchen and the bathroom cabinetry -- but it looks like the basics are there to make a great interior. So much light! But that poor exterior. It looks like it was whacked with an ugly stick for the past 20 years (the house was built in 1992). Can anything be done to upgrade that entry?
