Century-Old Craftsman in Lafayette Square Asking $1.4 Million

New, 2 comments

The rambling bungalow has six bedrooms, three baths, a Batchelder fireplace, and extensive original woodwork

Bordered by Crenshaw, Venice, Washington and West Boulevards, the historic enclave of Lafayette Square was developed by banker George L. Crenshaw between 1913 and the early 1920s. While the 200-plus residences in the development run a wide gamut of architectural styles, including Craftsman, Mediterranean, Spanish, Tudor, and Georgian Colonial Revival, they are all fairly substantial in size and boast generous lots.

Take this century-old Craftsman now on the market for instance. Located on S. Victoria Ave., the two-story bungalow contains six bedrooms and three baths within its 3,656 square feet. Its original features include a Batchelder fireplace, hardwood floors, stained glass, extensive woodwork, built-in cabinetry, and an expansive covered porch. On top of that, according to the listing, the .33-acre property also "incorporates a distinctive post-World War II outdoor recreation center that retains its original barbecue, kitchenette, built-in picnic table, [and] fish pond." Asking price is $1.399 million, and open house is scheduled for Sunday, April 24 between 2 and 5 p.m.
