In a pocket of Eagle Rock that’s pretty enough to make you forget just how close the 134 Freeway is, you’ll find this equally pretty Colonial Revival-style bungalow.
Built in 1920, the home has been updated, but kept some of its best period features, namely a restored Batchelder fireplace mantle. Other original details include wood floors, moldings, and a built-in dining room hutch with a pass-through. One of the standout spaces is a hexagon-shaped breakfast nook, one of multiple rooms dressed in elegant wallpaper.
In all, the 2,749-square-foot home holds two tastefully updated bathrooms and three bedrooms (including a master suite with a built-in wardrobe), plus a finished basement with a separate entrance.
Sited on a corner lot spanning a healthy 9,704 square feet, the dwelling comes with plenty of usable outdoor space: a wraparound porch, a wood deck, and a backyard with raised garden beds.
Last sold in 2014 for $1.18 million, 5290 Ellenwood Drive is listed now with Tracy Do and Eva Rose Berges of Compass for $1.65 million.
