Just a few blocks away from the Verdugo Bar in Glassell Park, this crisp 1931 Spanish-style house is "virtually untouched." It has been updated, but in a way that allows plenty of original details to shine.
Stepping through the front door, visitors will see recessed built-in bookcases, curved doorways, beamed ceilings, and a large picture window looking out onto the neighborhood. The three-bedroom, one-bathroom house has a formal dining room and a breakfast nook, which is in a little rounded alcove at the front of the house outfitted with louver windows.
Fantastically retro yellow tilework gives the kitchen a warm, homey feeling, while the bathroom’s lilac-and-black tile is a welcome punch of color.
Measuring about 1,500 square feet, the house sits on an approximately 5,900-square-foot lot. The backyard and front yard are very minimally landscaped, but the blank slate offers an opportunity for personalization.
It’s listed for $645,000.
