Los Angeles | $2.65 Million
A 1923 farmhouse with three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, two half bathrooms and a guesthouse with a full bathroom, on a 0.2-acre lot
This property is in Laurel Canyon, an area long popular with Los Angeles-based artists, from the magician Harry Houdini and 1920s film stars like Rudolph Valentino to musicians of the 1960s and 1970s, including Joni Mitchell, Jim Morrison and Neil Young. Today, the area is still close-knit, and locals make regular trips to Canyon Country Store, a market and cafe housed in a 1920s building.
The house is zoned for Wonderland Avenue Elementary School, a well-ranked public school about five minutes away on foot. Studio City and Hollywood are about a 10-minute drive.
Size: 3,820 square feet
Price per square foot: $694
Indoors: A wood fence separates the front yard from the street, and exterior stairs lead up to the main entrance.
The hand-carved front door opens into a long hallway. To the left is a sitting room behind a set of double doors, and nearby is a powder room. At the end of the hall is an open space divided by a free-standing brick fireplace, with a dining area on one side and a den on the other. Both rooms have access to the kitchen, which has Saltillo-tile floors and a green Viking range.
Two bedrooms are on this level, off the den. The primary bedroom, at the back of the house, has access to two bathrooms: one with a stall shower and a washer-and-dryer setup, and the other with a green-and-white-tiled combination tub and shower. The second bathroom also connects to a guest room with stairs to a lower-level family room.
