Behind its colorful exterior, this Craftsman house holds a subtly lovely interior. The house is located just around the block from the Melrose Hill Historic District in East Hollywood, a collection of modest bungalows all built in the first quarter of the 20th century.
This four-bedroom Craftsman fits right into that bungalow scene, with its ample porch and beautiful wood details. Built in 1915, it holds hardwood floors and built-ins, including a standout buffet in the dining area.
There’s nothing vintage about the kitchen, which features new custom cabinets, a tile backsplash, and quartz counters.
The bedrooms are ample, and outfitted with wood floors and, in many cases, double-hung, wood-framed windows.
The property last sold in December 2016 for $604,000 (when it was considerably worse for the wear). It is now listed for $899,000.
