A five-minute walk from Leimert Park Plaza, this vivacious Spanish Colonial Revival at 4252 South Bronson Avenue is one of a handful in the area built by noted local developer Adolph Horowitz, whose charming period revival residences can also be found in Beverlywood and Carthay Circle.

Completed circa 1932, the home’s design was heavily influenced by the Art Deco aesthetic then in vogue, with jagged, exaggerated sculptural forms characteristic of the style infusing it with Jazz Age glamour. While some original elements have unfortunately fallen by the wayside, there are still plenty left to appreciate, including stepped tray ceilings, elaborate plaster work, wood-framed French windows, built-in vanities, and exuberantly colorful tile.

Entered via a bougainvillea-covered arcade, the two-story residence contains four bedrooms and two bathrooms within its 2,405 square feet. It’s been updated with a modern kitchen, new appliances, a new roof, gas furnace, water heater, and high efficiency air conditioning system. The property’s detached garage has also been converted to a studio or guest house.

On a 5,202-square-foot lot, the property is listed with Letty Vermeulen of Aspire at an asking price of $1.1999 million.

The light-filled living room features carved plaster beams and a sizable fireplace.
