My favorite house this month!
You know when you're on vacation, and you look around and wish that you could take that beautiful place and feeling of utter relaxation home with you? I love the use of color, details and staging. I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE! 4 beds (one in ADU) 3 baths, 1811 sf on 5401 lot. $1.8m mid city.
From the agent: After an 18-month, meticulous designer renovation, we present a very special jewel box of a home. Renouveau Hom only presents a home once every few years, and this is a unique opportunity. The charming features of this home remain, updated with inspired materials. Terrazzo counters, custom cabinetry hand-crafted with old-world charm, warm wood flooring, hand-troweled plaster-finish walls, and a curated set of jewel-like faucets, lights and special touches makes this home feel incredibly unique. You can feel the passion put into this labor of love. The backyard is absolutely magical - a luxurious soaking pool (filtered!), a gorgeous old growth tree with braided trunk, arched deck that flows to a lush, verdant private sanctuary that feels a million miles away from the city but is in the middle of everything fun. Listen to the wind rustle through the lush green leaves of that majestic mature tree. Pick one of the multiple areas to lounge, and gaze up into the blue, blue sky to watch the fluffy white clouds float by. With multiple areas to eat, lounge, play and soak, this is your absolute dream backyard. With three beautifully finished bedrooms, and two very special bathrooms, the main home is almost 1,500 square feet to enjoy, with an additional bedroom and bathroom space in the permitted ADU. The ADU is as just as stunning as the main house and adds to the resort-like feeling, with a flip-up bar window ready for your next party. Charming petite custom kitchen, beautiful bespoke bathroom finishes, and vintage touches such as the front door and stained glass window. An arched door leads to the alley beyond, maybe a future opportunity to completely fence off the ADU and have two separate private properties? Some of the things we love about this house: the sunlight streaming through the french door to the backyard in the afternoon, bathing the house in warm light. The feeling of being connected with the outdoors while inside the house, with a big arched glass window (with original wrought iron detailing) and walk-out wood french doors from three different rooms to the expansive yard. The original batchelder fireplace, restored and enhanced. The intricate arched detailing in the main living area - meticulously recreated by hand when the original couldn't be saved. This home is beyond special. We love the neighborhood as much as the house - tree-lined streets, warm neighbors, amazing local small businesses like Jurassic Magic Cafe (featuring pop ups from the likes of @sorellacollective x @laylabagels, N/Soto, La Libraria children's book store. Access even more fun just 5 minutes away in West Adams with favorites like Tartine, Miz La La, Alta Adams, Adams Wine Shop, Mian Noodles, Cento, Delicious Pizza and a myriad of other cafes, restaurants and shops. You're also just minutes from the heart of Culver City - ready to enjoy Hi-Lo Liquor, Coolhaus ice cream, Cognoscenti Coffee, Whole Foods, The Culver Steps, Salt 'n Straw and so much more. You're so close to nature here - have fun on the 13 mile Park to Playa bike trail or explore the hilly 400 acre Kenneth Hahn Park. All this amongst historic beauty, in a cozy neighborhood pocket just 15 minutes from DTLA, Culver City, and the beach! Gorgeous, Stunning. Warm. Listed by Samira at Compass. Contact me to view asap.
