1950s Time Capsule Fixer in Mt Washington Angling For a Bidding War

Open House: Sunday Nov 1 between 1 - 4 PM 1161 Olancha Dr, Mt. Washington

Price: $590,000
Beds, Baths: 2 BR, 2 BA
Floor Area: 1,626 sq. ft.
Per the Listing: "The mid-century Mt Washington fixer you've been waiting for. Transform this 2BR/2BA time capsule into something truly marvelous. With spectacular views north to the San Gabriels, excellent bones, amazing floor plan and quintessential Fifties architectural flair this home is ready to rise to the next level. Interior has wood floors throughout, an open plan paneled living/dining room with vaulted ceiling, a stone fireplace with built-ins on each side and perimeter cove lighting. The kitchen retains its original cabinets and must have been quite futuristic for its day with its diagonal cook-top peninsula. There is a wide hallway leading to the bedroom wing with a long wall of built-ins. The paneled den with wet bar (of course) leads out to a large private patio and those fab mountain views. The possibilities abound."

Sharpen your elbows, folks -- while this home appears to be in pretty rough shape, it's sited on a 8,656-square-foot lot and listed at a bidding-war-inciting figure. We'll keep an eye on it and report back just how much over its final sale price turns out to be.
