Tucked into Van Nuys’s historic district, this two-bedroom house built in 1940 has 21st century updates that include drought-tolerant landscaping and reverse osmosis water system.
Inside, the living room and dining area’s corner windows light up the space. Wood floors run throughout the two communal rooms and the kitchen, which is open to dining area.
A large, rock-covered fireplace makes a statement in the master bedroom, where a sliding glass door opens to a patio. There are only 1.5 bathrooms, but the full bath is decked out with “ an oversized shower” with two shower heads.
Measuring 1,550 square feet, the house sits on a nearly 6,000-square-foot lot with a spa and a covered patio with water misters (perfect for those hot Valley summers). A one-car garage has also been converted into a “special workshop” space.
Public records show the house last sold in 2013 for $465,000. Now, it’s listed for $585,000.
