Stunning beamed ceilings flow through out the main rooms. Hidden pocket doors add to the original charm of the home. The kitchen offers endless possibilities and overlooks the large deck & yard. The upper level offers 4 bedrooms with walk-in closets, balconies and 2 full baths, stained glass accents and a claw foot tub tucked away in the main suite.

You can feel the oldness oozing out of this one. Built in 1905, the home, also known as the Mary E. Smith House, is listed as Historic Cultural Monument #798 in the City of Los Angeles (contrary to the listing info, the North University Park area is a National Register Historic District, but the house is just recognized locally). Per The City Project, the house was designed by John C. Austin who you may recall from other fine architectural projects such as City Hall, the Shrine Auditorium, and Griffith Observatory. Sub-million dollar price tag but it looks like a lot of work will go into this one.
