Warm Craftsman Bungalow

Front of Home
Front of Home
The craftsman accents can be seen on the porch pillars and detail; the "bungalow" feel can be seen in the exposed rafters and broad eaves; the porch is very welcoming acting as a room outside.
Four bedrooms and two baths-1688 sq. foot, single-family craftsman bungalow with sound-insulated music studio. The front bedrooms have mountain views. The back bedroom and its screened sleeping porch have sunset views of L.A.’s hills (Mt. Washington, etc.). The main bath has been restored with a new clawfoot tub/shower and period fixtures. The upstairs landing has a large wood built-in with shelves/doors/drawers. Other features include original windows, restored molding/woodwork, built-in wood-work, views, and a working fireplace with recently lined chimney and a new flu/cover. Recently installed new heating and air-conditioning central air with a digital thermostat. Period storm windows provide insulation. The kitchen has a new Maytag stainless steel dishwasher, new disposal, stainless steel stove/oven, cherry wood cabinets, and hardwood counters with same grain as original wood work. Back bonus room is a permitted addition built with lots of light, new Berber carpeting, wood dog door, and laundry sink and hook-ups. Wired for Direct tv and has an ADT security system. Best of all, there is a front porch with a porch swing that makes the house a home. The porch is great for taking in the mountain views on the quiet evenings.

The two car garage has been converted into a sound-insulated (carpeted and insulated walls) music studio of about 400 sq. feet (that is not counted in 1688 sq. ft. of house).
