Setting hearts aflutter in Atwater Village this week is this Spanish-style bungalow built in 1926.
Located half a block southeast of Glendale Boulevard, the house is buffered from street noise and prying eyes by a tall hedge fence. Beyond the fence, the line between inside and out is kept blurry.
A saltillo-tiled path leads from the sidewalk to a covered porch with two choices of entry. On the right, behind Doorway No. 1, you’ll find an airy living room with fireplace, arched windows, and a barrel vault ceiling, while Doorway No. 2 opens to a foyer spacious enough to serve as an informal dining room. Off to the left is the sunny galley-style kitchen with refurbished vintage stove and built-in breakfast nook.
The 1,412-square-foot home also contains three bedrooms and two full baths with original tile and built-ins.
Two sets of French doors open to a garden designed by Samantha Gore, the award-winning landscape architect whose projects include local fave Salazar. Along with an enchanting bougainvillea-bedecked patio and multiple planter boxes, the backyard features a bonus studio space with beamed ceilings, cement floors, and glass doors.
On a 6,752-square-foot lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $1.2 million. Open house is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday.
