There's a boom in interest right now in beautiful Craftsman homes around USC, in such neighborhoods as Jefferson Park. But if you're looking to live in a centrally located house south of the 10 Freeway, Jefferson Park isn't the only place to find sweet older homes.
Take for example this newly touched-up Craftsman with four bedrooms and a spacious yard. The 1,454-square-foot house has new laminate wood floors throughout, and new windows throughout most of the house. The exception are those on the front, facing the street, enhancing the house’s strong period look from that angle.
Beyond the house’s wide porch, there’s a dining area with a few built-ins that the sellers believe to be original, says listing agent Christian Ortiz. The kitchen has new granite counters and an easy flow into the dining area.
The bedrooms have new flooring and ceiling fans. In one of the house’s two full bathrooms, there is a clawfoot bathtub.
The bonus with the house is the large lot, which in addition to plenty of grass, comfortably fits a detached two-car garage.
It's located in what the listing copy calls Park Hills Heights (though, by the Los Angeles Times’ neighborhoods map, it would be in Hyde Park, which is bordered to the north and west by Leimert Park and View Park-Windsor Hills).
It’s listed for $479,000.
