This lovely English cottage was built in 1925 and has been owned by the same family for over 40 years. Located in the desirable Cal Tech neighborhood on a serene tree-lined street, this home has a charming street presence. Lovingly maintained and improved over time, the home retains much of its original details including beautiful hardwood floors and beamed ceilings. Light flows into all the rooms through the many windows, most of which have been replaced. The large living room features a beamed ceiling, fireplace, and built-in bookshelves. A step up leads to a formal dining room, perfect for family meals or dinner with friends. The adjacent updated kitchen is light-filled and cheerful. It features a large eating area, an abundance of cabinetry, and a pantry. All appliances are included in the sale.
The front bedroom, which may have originally been a den, features a side door that opens onto a private porch. The second light-filled bedroom is good-sized and overlooks the lovely backyard. The hallway features built-ins and leads to a ¾ bathroom. Hidden behind a hallway door is a steep staircase that leads to a partially finished attic space. The owner’s children used the upstairs as a special hideaway many years ago! It also offers great storage and is not included in the square footage.
The primary bedroom features an ensuite bathroom with a handicap-accessible tub and a walk-in closet. Off the primary bedroom is an enclosed lanai which opens onto the backyard and pool area. A corner of the lanai serves as a laundry area. The washer and dryer are included in the sale.
There is a detached garage and a private, fenced yard that features a gleaming pool. There is a utility cellar with outside access. This lovely character home is in the coveted neighborhood in the Rose Villa neighborhood near Caltech and Huntington Gardens.
