Eclectic 1920s Duplex With Secret Stairs Asking $950k in HLP

New, 11 comments

Built in 1926, this Highland Park house packs quite a lot into its multiple levels, so much so that its listing is a bit difficult to follow. But as best as we can tell, the three-story residence consists of two separate units. On the first floor, you've got a one-bedroom flat with living room, dining room, kitchen, bath, and laundry, the remodel of which emphasizes the "river rock" motif quite heavily. The second floor, which is accessed by an exterior staircase, contains one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, dining room, living room with fireplace and grate heater, solarium, and laundry room.

On the third floor, you'll find three additional bedrooms, including the master, which features vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, and original hardwood floors. Per the listing, the third floor bathroom "has a hidden stairway leading down to a bonus studio room with fireplace, custom hopper windows, ceiling fan, and French doors that open onto the patio and backyard." If that's not enough for you, there's also an attic, a view balcony, new electrical and plumbing systems, a second enclosed backyard with fruit trees, and a one-car garage. Sited on a 5,671-square-foot hillside lot, the property is listed at $950,000.
