Here’s a feel-good comeback story out of Highland Park. When this California bungalow last appeared on the market back in December, it was looking decidedly worn out, drab, and cheerless, as previous listing photos illustrate. Seven months later, the century-old Craftsman has returned looking like a million bucks—which, coincidentally, is also about what it’ll cost to make it yours.
Located at 1418 Campus Road a couple blocks south of Occidental College, the revived bungalow contains two bedrooms and one bathroom within its 1,056 square feet. Its original features include hardwood floors, built-in bookcases and hutches, art tiles around the fireplace, and wood-framed sash windows.
Mixing beautifully with the original details are such new elements as Lelièvre wallpaper, period-style tile and light fixtures, quartz countertops, custom cabinets, and a refurbished antique stove. Other updates include a tankless water heater, a new HVAC system, and new landscaping.
On a 6,002-square-foot lot, the property is listed with Jennifer Parker-Stanton and Abby Royal of Deasy Penner Podley at an asking price of $928,000. Open houses are scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday and 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
