Built in 1934 and still looking fabulous

Here’s an opportunity to own one of the glamorous period revival homes that dominate Carthay Square’s historic district. This property is actually a duplex, two magnificent units in a 3,547-square-foot Mediterranean-style structure built in 1934.

Each residence contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms with stunning period tile. One retains its original yellow and turquoise kitchen tile, while the other kitchen has been stylishly updated. Both feature pretty scalloped entryways, hardwood floors, tray ceilings, built-ins, an abundance of natural sunlight, fireplaces, formal entryways, and master suites that open to wrought iron balconies.

They’re tied together by a courtyard with Saltillo tiling and a backyard with fruit trees.

Per the listing, improvements include HVAC, tankless water heaters, new appliances, and “foundation work.”

Last sold for $1.08 million, 1212 South Hayworth is now on the market for $1.949 million. (The property is subject to the city’s rent control ordinance, and the lower unit is tenant-occupied.)

A fairly sparse living room painted all white with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace, tray ceiling, hardwood floors, and a white sofa and oval-shaped wood coffee table.
