Now on the market in the city’s first historic preservation zone, Angelino Heights, is an attractive Queen Anne Victorian that dates all the way back to 1893.
According to historic records, the home’s first owner was Edgar LeFebvre, a French-American attorney and the financial secretary of the social group Court Francaise.
Located behind a rustic stone wall at 601 E. Edgeware Rd., the 126-year-old cottage looks to have been relatively unscathed by the hands of time. Measuring 2,253 square feet, the three-bedroom residence’s outstanding features include tongue-and-groove Douglas Fir beveled flooring, original windows, period light fixtures, pocket doors, two fireplaces, 12-foot ceilings, and extensive millwork.
Not to say the house is a Victorian-era time capsule. The property description notes, “In the mid 1980’s, a permitted addition was completed in the style of the original home, which added a larger garage and 403 square feet of livable space to the second floor.”
Other updates include a Bulthaup-crafted kitchen with Subzero fridge and Viking range, copper plumbing, and new HVAC and electrical systems.
On a 5,788-square-foot lot with a pond and palm trees, the Mills Act-eligible property is asking $1.249 million. Craig Ekedahl of MaisonRE has the listing.
