RESTORED LOS FELIZ CRAFTSMAN + GUEST STUDIO
This stately Los Feliz Craftsman residence combines the best of both eras of Los Angeles: The early architecture of the area (circa 1916) and all of today’s modern conveniences.
The main house is gated and privatized from the street by mature landscaping. A welcoming and intimate park-like setting is just inside the property’s front gate. A sweeping roof line hovers over a large porch—complete with swing, brick surround, and beams lofting above. Wood siding and a dazzling combination of early 20th-century paint hues augment the historic nature of the house’s exterior. And speaking of historic, this block of Canyon Drive is mentioned in the film “Chinatown,” set in 1937 L.A., as the spot where detective Jake Giddes (Jack Nicholson) hides heiress Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) just before the Oscar-winning movie’s climax.
Once inside the residence, the period details shine. Gleaming wood floors, moldings, paneling, and built-ins turn back time. An original over-scale fireplace anchors the living room. Built-in china cabinets bracket the dining area. Expansive (original) leaded-glass windows bring the lush, green outdoors inside.
If the heart of most homes is its kitchen, then this one beats loudly. Everything is here: Walls of windows, stainless-steel appliances, kitchen island with prep sink (and room for bar stools), original built-ins, custom cabinets, and built-in diner-style booth. Double doors lead out to an entertainer’s patio area for summer cook-outs.
The main house has three bedrooms and two updated bathrooms; one with a step-in shower with frameless glass enclosure, and one with a soaking tub/shower combination.
BONUS ALERT: A converted garage now functions as a guest studio with its own bathroom (with a step-in shower). This versatile space adds a “fourth” bedroom, office, writer’s room, pool house, or gym. Stacked full-sized laundry machines are located here (perfect for all those beach towels). NOTE: There are additional laundry hook-ups in the main house.
The backyard is a wonderland of L.A. living. The swimmer’s pool—with three waterfalls—features a Baja shelf and an elevated sun deck. Mature greenery surrounds the 8,000+ square-foot lot. Colorful plants line the flower beds (including rose bushes). The sun beams into the yard for hours each day; twinkling outdoor lights reflect off the pool's surface every evening.
History, comfort, and room to live life to its fullest are here.
