Per the Listing: "Rare intact 1909 Arts & Crafts residence with original light fixtures, extraordinary oak trim and paneling, beamed ceilings, stained & leaded glass, and murals throughout - plus, a turret! The dining room features murals depicting castles & forests, a leaded glass china cabinet and a stained glass window; the living room has a one-of-a-kind clinker brick fireplace imbedded with agates, serpentine, and Mexican opals. The library has bookcases w/ leaded glass doors and classical scenes in murals above. In the 1920s, the house was moved from Adams Blvd. to its current site, and its exterior was remodeled to the then-popular Mission Revival style. Later owners included actress Ruby Dandridge. "SurveyLA" has identified this house as a Contributor to the eligible Wellington Square historic district. This unique residence will benefit from a sensitive restoration/TLC and likely upgrades to systems, but it is an opportunity to own an Arts & Crafts masterpiece on a large (80'X145') lot."
It's a very good price for a house that will require a lot of maintenance. Those murals in every room are insane and should be restored and protected from sun damage. And there's a turret, which instantly makes any house worth more. Let's hope this one goes to a responsible buyer.
