Los Angeles | $1.799 Million
A 1934 Spanish-style house with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.1-acre lot
This house, owned by the seller for three decades, is a well-preserved example of the 1920s and 1930s Spanish-style homes for which Los Angeles is known. The original colorful tiles in the bathrooms and kitchen have been carefully maintained, and original built-ins with decorative flourishes abound.
The property is in the South Carthay Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, within easy commuting distance of the office-heavy Mid-Wilshire area and Beverly Hills. Less than a mile away is a stretch of South Fairfax Avenue known for its Ethiopian restaurants and bakeries. Downtown Los Angeles is about 20 minutes away by car.
Size: 2,259 square feet
Price per square foot: $796
Indoors: A wrought-iron gate separates the house from the street, with the front door on the far side of a covered porch.
Beyond the original wood door is a foyer, and turning right leads to a sunken living room. The coved ceilings are accented with white-painted beams, and a stained-glass window with a ship detail faces the front yard. The delicate metal sconces are original, as is the fireplace.
