Per the Listing: “A Franklin Hills gem on the border of Los Feliz and Silver Lake! Up a secret staircase above the avenue is this Spanish treasure, a retreat tucked among Silver Lake shops and restaurants. At the top of the steps is a lush oasis of mature trees and plantings. Enter the courtyard and be embraced by old world charm. The focal feature of the living room is the central fireplace, flanked by French doors that open onto a bright and serene sun room, an ideal space for an office, studio, or den. The kitchen has a charming niche overlooking the front garden, with a built-in table. A utility room with laundry hook-ups is opposite with a nearby side door that leads to the side and rear yard. The two bedrooms are situated at the back of the house with a spacious bath between, vintage tile intact. The property has lovely outdoor rooms that seamlessly extend the indoor spaces. There is a 2-car garage and plenty of street parking.”
Sited on a 5,096-square-foot lot, this Franklin Hills home was originally listed in November at $898,000 before getting a $50,000 price chop a week later. Although it’s certainly got charm in spades, it’s also got a few factors working against it, such as its proximity to busy Hyperion Avenue and its gloomy, outdated kitchen. While there’s nothing much that can be done about the former, on the plus side, the cosmetic issues look to be fairly easily addressed. And some professional staging/decluttering probably couldn’t hurt either.
