Situated on the northern edge of Koreatown, this shingled Craftsman and historic-cultural monument awaits its next owner.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom house was designed in 1910 by John and Donald Parkinson, the father-and-son architectural duo that designed a number of standout buildings in Downtown LA, including the Los Angeles Stock Exchange and the Title Guarantee building. (The elder Parkinson also designed City Hall and the LA Memorial Coliseum.)

Named the Heart House, its plentiful interior wood accents have been restored. Other features include a wide front porch, wood-burning brick fireplace, gleaming hardwood floors, and spectacular original built-ins.

The historic residence last sold in 2014 for $1.1 million. It’s now listed for $1.5 million with Lissa Lebel of Sotheby’s International Realty and Rob Kallick of Compass.

The wood in the home has been restored.
The large kitchen features a high-end stove and a farmhouse sink.
Handsome built-ins dot the home.
Designed by John and Donald Parkinson, who together also designed the Los Angeles Stock Exchange and a number of other stand-out Downtown buildings.
