It’s a red letter day when a home built before the turn of the 20th century lands on the market in Los Angeles. This shingled beauty in historic Angelino Heights makes the cut.

Built in 1899, it was originally a single-family residence, but has been converted into a duplex. Per the listing, two bedrooms and a bath complete the front unit, which also holds a formal dining room and a “large welcoming entry hall.” At the rear, there’s a studio unit with its own kitchen and full bath, along with a separate entrance.

An abundance of classic details are intact, including wide moldings, an original fireplace, leaded windows, original hardwood floors, built-ins, and a wide bay window.

Sitting on a 4,451-square-foot lot, the residence opens on the front to a little porch and, on the side and back, to a tiled outdoor area with room for entertaining. Last sold 17 years ago in 2002 for... wait for it... $85,500, the dwelling is now listed for $995,000.
