Don’t look now, but yet another of our fair metropolis’ Historic-Cultural Monuments—#781 for those keeping score at home—has come up for grabs. Also known as the Mills Cottage, the Highland Park home was built in 1936 by local architect Paul Hartman, who also designed Glendale’s Vogue Theatre. The two-bedroom, two-bath cottage was granted landmark status in 2004 as an intact example of bungalow-style architecture transitioning into ranch style.
Occupying a 9,300-square-foot lot south of York Boulevard, the cottage’s arsenal of charming details includes coved ceilings, arched doorways, hardwood floors, glass doorknobs, a built-in china cabinet, a built-in vanity, and decorative grates.
Its terraced grounds feature mature fruit trees, multiple garden beds, and mountain views. There’s also a basement and a one-car garage. Last sold in 2005 for $665,000, it’s now asking $768,000. An open house is scheduled for Tuesday from 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
