Per its listing, this Spanish-style residence located just south of San Vicente Boulevard in Mid-Wilshire was built in 1928 by a contractor "for her family to live in," and has stayed in the same family its entire history. In the 85-year-old house's negative column: its chimney, plumbing, and electrical systems are all original and most likely need replacing. In the positive column: the three-bedroom, two-bath house is also blessed with a bounty of lovely original details that do not need replacing, including hardwood floors, barreled ceilings, archways, cubby holes, vintage sconces, Batchelder tile, wood windows, and beautiful built-ins. Sited on a 6,911-square-foot lot with a rose garden, it's asking $749,000.
