Per the Listing: "On a quiet tree-lined street sits this private, gated 1930s Spanish oasis. Behind the walled garden you will find a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with all of the charm of the period intact. A 1950s kitchen leads you to the main living room, separate dining room and library/family room. The garden and house are pesticide and chemical free. A massive swimmers pool, 2 separate guest houses both with bathrooms are set in an enchanting garden where you can dine under a pergola draped with grape vines and wisteria or enjoy the numerous fruit, citrus trees, mature palms and bamboo. This eco-friendly house comes complete with leased solar panels and an entire house water purifying system. Used by many location companies for film and print it generates its own income. Tons of storage and a sweet lending library at the street. So much more, this house is a must see."
The subject of a 2010 LA Times feature, this .37-acre property is the home of eco-lifestyle maven (and descendant of the famous five-and-dime store founders) Priscilla Woolworth, who purchased it for $842,000 in 2002. Ms. Woolworth's commitment to the green lifestyle is quite admirable; unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be working so...swimmingly, shall we say, where the pool is concerned.
