Property Remarks

Offering unparalleled functionality & brand new upgrades inside & out, this two-story, 1920s colonial style residence is a gem to behold in the heart of central Los Angeles's historic Wilshire Park. From gatherings on the front porch to intimate tastings in the wine cellar and afternoons spent poolside in the sun-soaked yard. Hardwood floors, a cozy fireplace, flawless brick and tile work, and newly installed insulated windows are featured throughout. Both the large kitchen and adjacent living room provide direct access to the outdoor patio/yard where beyond lies an impressive pool and permitted recreational room/pool house. Upstairs in the master suite, French doors span the entire length of the room, adding enviable charm while inviting one to enjoy the huge balcony overlooking the rear of the property. Wilshire Park is in an Historic Preservation Overlay Zone. Due to this HPOZ designation, there are restrictions regarding modifications that can be done to the exterior of the house.
