The Place

the ultimate LA dream house: a sunny 1931 Spanish Revival on a gorgeous tree-lined street in the middle of this amazing city. Elevated with beautiful hand-selected designer finishes, this home turns ordinary moments into spectacular ones, and thoroughly celebrates the vibrance of beautiful Leimert Park. Every corner of this home has been thoroughly considered and invites you to stay and relax. The front patio & steps beckon you into the home, showcasing colorful handmade Concrete Collaborative tile, locally sourced. Just beyond, see the gorgeous solid mahogany front door that has been hand-carved by master carvers. Inside, the new oak flooring echoes the once original hardwood, gleaming with pride and once again warming the interior. Look up and glimpse the soaringly high ceilings that make this home feel deliciously expansive. The decorative fireplace grounds the space, having been lovingly restored & enhanced with hand-fired, earthy terracotta tile. Look to the east and you’ll find the handmade arched french doors, which evoke the spirit of this Spanish revival and also provide that indoor/outdoor flow that we all crave. Steps outside the french doors take you to a fully enclosed, lush grassy yard. Back inside, the heart of the kitchen is a gorgeous white and gold Ilve stove from Italy, gleaming like jewelry. Arches echo throughout the kitchen, as well – featuring Concrete Collaborative X Dwell tile and cabinets painted in the most gorgeous shade (deemed the very accurate “Mood Lighting”) that glows with warmth. Move through the hallway arch to the private bedroom and bathroom wing, featuring a hidden laundry closet. The powder room features a stunning copper sink from Morocco and handmade matte blush oval tile from Spain. Two of the three bedrooms are main bedroom suites, which both feature ensuite bathrooms. The first features a stunning refreshed vintage jade bathtub and custom blush vanity. The second of the two features arches galore, transporting every formerly mundane morning into an exotic spa experience. These are just a few of the very thoughtful finishes that make this house warm, special, and memorable. The principal suite at the back of the house features wood doors that open into an enchanting private courtyard strung with cafe lights. Blush french doors off the courtyard lead you to an oversize garage – what future adventures can you create here? Potential ADU or simply enjoy it as/is as office space? Wonderful updates complete the package: new HVAC, new Velux skylight, new tankless, upgraded sewer, foundation repair, 200AMP electrical panel, new fencing and driveway gate, new landscaping/sprinkler system. What an amazing neighborhood! Full of history and character, and warm neighbors that greet you as they walk their dogs. The neighborhood thrives with vibrant small businesses; here, you’re just one block from the heart of Leimert Park Village, featuring favorites like Harun Coffee, Hot and Cool Cafe, Azla, All Chill ice cream, & more. Enjoy weekend live music at the Marketplace. Or special events like the Leimert Park Jazz Festival. Just blocks away, access the mall: movie theater, amazing restaurants like Post + Beam (delicious food & artisanal cocktails!), and weekend farmer’s market. And soon, the metro station will provide future access to the airport. Just a little further, enjoy businesses like Hilltop Coffee, Jon & Vinny’s/Helen’s Wines, Orleans & York, Simply Wholesome, Puerto Nuevo & more! Have fun on the 13 mile Park to Playa bike trail (from the Baldwin Hills Parklands to the Pacific Ocean!) or explore the 400 acre Kenneth Hahn Park, with bonus 360 degree views of LA. All this amongst historic beauty, in a cozy neighborhood pocket just 20 min from DTLA, 15 min from Culver City, and 20 from the beach! This home feels like a warm and welcoming carefully curated work of livable art. And much like the most rarefied art : there is only one available.
