Los Angeles | $2.995 Million
An 1883 Victorian with five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest apartment, on a 0.1-acre lot
This house was first built in downtown Los Angeles on Bunker Hill, a fashionable area at the time. It has since been moved twice — first in the early 1900s, to an area just west of the city center, and again in 1989. By the middle of the 20th century, most of Bunker Hill had been razed, which makes the survival of this home especially remarkable.
The property is now part of the Angelino Heights Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, five minutes from Echo Park and less than 10 minutes from Silver Lake and downtown Los Angeles.
Size: 3,276 square feet
Price per square foot: $914
Indoors: The front door, set in a covered porch, opens to a foyer papered in a blue-and-gold print from Farrow & Ball. To the right is a living room with tall, street-facing windows trimmed in the original wood molding, which was refinished during the home’s restoration. Beyond is a formal dining room with a fireplace surrounded by an ornately carved mantel. At the back of this level is the kitchen, which has porcelain counters, Douglas fir flooring, stainless-steel appliances and an island topped with butcher block.
There are two bedrooms on this level, off the kitchen. One is large enough to hold a full-size bed, with a bathroom that has a glass-walled shower next door. The other, which could be used as a primary bedroom, has a decorative fireplace and a bathroom next door with a claw-foot tub in front of stained glass windows.
