One block away from Pan-Pacific Park, this diamond-in-the-rough Spanish Colonial Revival is waiting for a new owner to buff it to a shine.

The property has been in the same family for 80 years, says listing agent Hattie Ramirez. It shows some signs of wear, but are overshadowed by the awesome details dating back to the home’s 1932 origins: beautifully ornamented ceilings, built-ins, hardwood floors, and stunning decorative tile work in the kitchen and bathrooms.

“Except for the louver windows, everything is original down to the glass doorknobs,” says Ramirez.

The three-bedroom house holds 1.75 bathrooms (including one with what appears to be a hand-painted mural and some very elaborate woodwork), breakfast room, basement, and formal dining room.

Positioned on a nearly 6,000-square-foot lot in Fairfax—near The Grove and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art—it’s asking $1.4 million.
