Located within shouting distance of Walt Disney’s former estate in Los Feliz, this lovely Spanish Colonial Revival was built in 1936 for Vernon Nussbaum, owner of a fruit-packing and distribution company. Perched above the street, the tile-roofed residence is a winning combination of vintage and modern elements.
Serving up old-school glamour is the impressive entry foyer with a sweeping magnesite staircase and hand-tooled wrought iron railings. An arched doorway leads to the handsome step-down living room with a wood beam ceiling, built-in bookshelves, a sizable picture window, French doors, and an elegant fireplace.
Also on the entry level is a formal dining room with hardwood floors, a stepped-tray ceiling, and sculpted archways, and the thoroughly modern kitchen, which has been outfitted with top-of-the-line appliances, custom cabinetry, and ceramic tile floors.
Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and three updated baths—the master bath is particularly luxurious—while outside you’ll find an outdoor kitchen with built-in barbecue, a pergola-shaded dining patio, a saltwater pool with spa, and an outdoor shower. The property also has an attached two-car garage with a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest suite above it.
On a .34-acre lot, 4101 Parva Avenue is listed with Patricia Ruben of Sotheby’s International Realty at an asking price of $3.7 million. A twilight open house is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. today.
