Built in 1941, this light-filled two-bedroom home is a charming precursor to the multitude of ranch houses built in the San Fernando Valley following World War II.
Situated on a roomy 7,850-square-foot lot in Valley Glen, it’s fronted by a grassy front lawn and a long driveway leading to the attached two-car garage. Inside are original hardwood floors, diamond-paned windows, and crown moldings.
The living room, equipped with a handsome brick fireplace, leads into a formal dining room attached to the roomy kitchen. Behind that is a window-filled sun room, covered by a beamed and planked ceiling. Wood floors extend into the master bedroom, illuminated by a large bay window.
Out back is a large, enclosed yard with an orange tree and space for a garden and outdoor seating.
Located at 12217 Califa Street, not far from the soon-to-open NoHo West shopping center, the house is asking $750,000.
