This Spanish-style home in Mid-city’s Picfair Village is chock full of charm and winsome period details. Built in 1931, the two-bedroom home boasts original hardwood floors, arched doorways, vintage windows and doorknobs, and bits of stained glass.
The living room, illuminated by a large central window, has built-in shelving and an elegant fireplace with a clay tile base. In the kitchen, decorative tiles adorn the countertops and backsplashes, while a breakfast nook includes built-in bench seating.
The house has 1,357 square feet of living space, with 1.5 bathrooms to go along with the pair of bedrooms and plenty of storage space. Last sold in 2004 (for $606,000), the residence has been updated over the years, but retains plenty of its cozy 1930s aesthetic.
The home sits on a 5,453-square-foot lot with a grassy front lawn, a trellis-shaded front porch, and a landscaped backyard framed by tall hedges that afford the property plenty of privacy. There’s also a detached garage that’s been set up as a bonus living space and, as the listing suggests, could be converted into a small back house.
Asking price is $1.249 million. An open house is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
