Now gracing the market in Los Feliz is a lovely Spanish Colonial Revival built in 1930. Located north of Los Feliz Boulevard a few blocks west of the Crystal Springs Drive entrance to Griffith Park, the tile-roofed residence is largely hidden from the views of passers-by behind tall hedges and an imposing pair of wooden gates. This is a bit of a shame, as the home’s approach and front façade is quite a treat for the eye, with an attractive flagstone path, charming fountain, and colorful painted tiles—but hey, at least there are listing photos.

Measuring in at 2,253 square feet, the two-story residence contains three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, formal living and dining rooms, and a study. Character features include an elegant magnesite staircase with wrought iron railing, barreled ceilings, hardwood floors, French doors and windows, archways, a gas fireplace, built-in shelving and niches, and antique sconces and chandeliers.

Moving outside, the property has a terraced back patio with fountain and built-in seating, mature deodar cedar, silk floss, and palm trees, and a detached structure divided into two sections, with the larger portion serving as a two-car garage, and the smaller section geared toward use as an artist’s or writer’s studio.

On a 7,639-square-foot lot, 3783 Effingham Place is listed with Boni Bryant and Joe Reichling of Compass at an asking price of $1.775 million. Open house is scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

To the right of the tiled entry is a step-down living room with barrel ceiling, hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, and wrought iron sconces.
