Gracing the market for the first time in decades is a three-bedroom 1931 Spanish courtyard home in northwest Sherman Oaks. While the old gal could probably benefit from a bit of freshening up, it’s blessed with the proverbial good bones plus a cavalcade of charming character details—here’s hoping it finds a buyer who appreciates them.
Among the 1,931-square-foot home’s numerous appealing attributes are turrets topped with ironwork, arched windows, keystone-arched doorways, barrel-vaulted ceilings, French windows, glass doorknobs, and hardwood floors with marquetry detailing.
And that’s just for starters—there’s also a built-in vanity and telephone nook, and some adorable mouse-themed cabinetry in the laundry room. But the real show-stoppers would have to be the incredible tile decorating the living room fireplace and both bathrooms.
On a 6,750-square-foot corner lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $869,500. Open house is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
