Property Description

With its large front yard and deep setback from the street, this stately, 1924 English manor house revival in Hancock Park is the perfect property for those looking for a location that meets both an urban and suburban setting. Restored in 2008, the 2,696 square foot house has all the tenets of a formal period revival built during the Southern California land boom of the 1920s. Access from the front of the home is gained through a large, four-centered, clinker brick archway, a theme that is also repeated in the outdoor fireplace and the Batchelder tile fireplace of the great room. Designed with a center hall floor plan, the formal dining room, and the great room on either side of the hallway with their oak floors with a classic, dark walnut inlaid border offers a glimpse of what is in store for visitors as they enter the rest of the house. The second-floor staircase is subtly placed at the end of the hall as is the direct access to the kitchen, dining area, and downstairs bedroom, service porch, and three-quarter bath. The family room has French doors which provide direct access to the outdoor kitchen, backyard, outdoor fireplace, and saltwater pool and spa, all of which, of course, provide the perfect environment for work and play in a setting similar to your favorite resort. Additionally, the proximity of the family room to the kitchen is ideal for casual entertaining, movie nights, or gatherings that may require trips to the kitchen. As an added bonus, a small fruit orchard, nearly hidden from sight on the gated property, provides annual harvests at various times each year. During the restoration and some subsequent upgrades, high-end appliances, and Carrara Marble flooring and countertops were added to the kitchen and service porch. On the second floor, there are a total of three bedrooms, two full baths, and two outdoor patios, including an east and west-facing en-suite main bedroom with a separate oversized tub and shower. Third Street Elementary, shops and restaurants are one-half mile away from the house.
