Mills Act Craftsman in Harvard Heights
Quintessential Arts & Crafts home in West Adams' popular Harvard Heights HPOZ. Mills Act historical property contract includes property tax reductions. Inviting porch leads to a stunning interior, which retains all of its woodwork, built-ins, leaded and stained glass, and major light fixtures. The first floor boasts a rare and compelling floor plan featuring a spacious bay-windowed entry/stair hall opening to three formal rooms inter-connected through pillars and pocket doors - living room with fireplace; bay-windowed study with studded wood battens, leatherette wainscot and two bookcases with leaded glass doors; and culminating in a bay-windowed dining room with massive china cabinet with more striking leaded glass. Kitchen with period cabinetry opens to large service porch (could double as breakfast/family room) overlooking the rear yard. Four corner bedrooms upstairs, one with a covered porch. Rebuilt garage functions as a charming bonus room and storage. So many neighborhood amenities! Walk to Alibi Coffee, Blue Elephant Cafe, and Boulon d'Amore coffee house. Minutes from the community's many restaurants, including Pasta Sisters, Spaccio Salumeria/Truffle Brothers, Destino, ever-popular Papa Cristo's, Surfas Culinary District and Cafe, Johnny's West Adams, plus the many trendsetting new eateries stretching west along Adams Boulevard (Alta Adams, Mizlala, Mian, Cento Pasta Bar, and more. ) Close to the 10 Freeway; easy access to Culver City, K-Town, Santa Monica, Hollywood, and DTLA. A buyer will find that the home has some deferred maintenance and will benefit from some upgrades. But it is rare to find a home with the interior as intact as this one, fully showcasing the Arts & Crafts Movement circa 1910!
