Built in 1895, this particular residence was designed in the Queen Anne style by prominent California architect Joseph Cather Newsom. It’s been included on Los Angeles’s Historic-Cultural Monuments list since 1978.
The home’s front steps lead up to a covered porch and a sturdy front door that opens to a stunning living space with an octagonal ceiling and a bay window overlooking Downtown LA. An adjacent staircase cuts a stately figure, with ornate columns and a built-in bench alongside.
The home has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, with 4,092 square feet of living space. Hardwood floors, crown moldings, and neatly carved door frames can be found throughout the house. The bathrooms and kitchen appear to have been updated, but both are currently outfitted with vintage appliances and fixtures.
Sitting on a 7,499-square-foot lot, the house has a grassy front yard and a quirky built-in bar in the back.
Listed a few years back with an asking price north of $2 million, it’s back on the market seeking $1.69 million.
