One of Laurel Canyon’s earliest planned housing tracts, Wonderland Park was developed in the 1920s and ’30s. Just down the road from the neighborhood’s much-vaunted elementary school, established in 1927, you’ll find this fetching storybook English cottage that has been around since 1931.
The three-bedroom home looks to have held up quite nicely over the years. Though the kitchen and master bath have been updated, plenty of original character features remain, including peg and groove hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, two fireplaces, ceramic tilework, built-ins, French doors, diamond-pane windows, and dovecotes.
Exterior spaces include a top floor balcony deck, a brick patio, and grassy yard with a playhouse. On a gated 5,432-square-foot lot with two-car garage, the cottage is listed with an asking price of $1.479 million.
