We should all age this gracefully

When this Craftsman in Angelino Heights was built, way back in 1902, grizzly bears still roamed local forests and you could ride the Angels Flight funicular up and down Bunker Hill for a penny. One hundred and seventeen years later, the two-story residence at 962 West Kensington still stands proud, ready for its next chapter.

While the three-bedroom bungalow’s exterior appears of its era, its insides have kept pace with the times. Original elements such as the Douglas fir porch, brick fireplaces, and wood-framed casement windows coexist peacefully with reclaimed granary oak floors and a custom Arroyo Craftsman Huntington light pendant.

Paying heed to modern tastes, the 2,133-square-foot home has been appointed with Heath tile, marble countertops, a Bertazzoni range, and light fixtures by Nickey Kehoe. The detached garage has also been brought up to date, with open-beam framing, polished concrete floors and automatic, solar-powered skylights.

The mix-and-match spirit extends to the property’s inventively landscaped grounds, which contain mature olive trees, a shady pepper tree, a blood orange tree, native succulents, and lavender, sage, and rosemary bushes.

On a 7,631-square-foot lot, the property is listed with Craig Ekedahl of Maisonre at an asking price of $1.695 million. An open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday.
