This personable little bungalow sits on a 6,189-square-foot lot in Highland Park, close to the neighborhood’s border with Eagle Rock.
In front of the home, a gravel walkway leads through a neatly maintained, drought-tolerant garden. In back, a wooden deck affixed to the house looks across a grassy lawn with an unusual sunken patio, garden beds, and a detached studio unit that appears to currently serve as a home office.
The house itself was built in 1925 and boasts hardwood floors, arched doorways, casement windows, built-in wall niches, and a decorative mantel in the living room. It’s got two bedrooms and one bathroom, with a formal dining room, a laundry area, and a breakfast nook.
The renovated kitchen has new appliances, cabinets, and countertops; the bathroom is equipped with a clawfoot tub.
Located at 1609 North Avenue 56, the 1,020-square-foot home is listed for $749,000.
