Our much-loved, well-cared for home and vineyard/garden is looking for its next keepers.
This mid-century gem with sun-kissed views sits atop a private drive on a double lot with panoramic vistas and an expansive front patio off the professional chef’s kitchen. While multi-million dollar homes are being built in the area, our home offers three things they lack--unobstructed views, privacy and a quarter acre of land.
3 bed/2 bath, open beam high ceilings in the living room, kitchen and master bedroom, sunlight galore, central heat/air, fresh paint indoors and out, original light oak parquet and Saltillo tile floors, wood-burning fireplace, bespoke artisan gates, new windows and sliding glass doors for the ultimate outdoor LA living and creative inspiration. This light-filled home captures amazing views through its scenic windows including mountain ranges, the Griffith Park Observatory and Century City.
A walk-in shower, jetted tub, cool artisan tile work. Mixing old and new, a 100-year-old stained glass "barn door" adds an inimitable touch. Lots of closet space. And if you like to cook, the kitchen is for you! Not an all-white trendy affair, the chef owner designed it with a practical, yet artistic eye. Blue quartz counters, stainless steel appliances; tile imported from Italy. Warm and bright colors to inspire your inner top chef. Watch the sunrise over coffee on the front patio. Share romantic alfresco dinners. Or stay indoors where the carefully appointed lighting will set the mood.
The second lot (1630 N Begonia Avenue) is home to Instagram’s mybigeffingarden. Created by the owner who has consulted on many celebrity's hillside homes, flat upper areas and look out decks invite you to watch glorious sunsets, dine and entertain. Below, your very own organic urban farm/vineyard dotted with giant oaks, native plants, peach, apple, fig, grapefruit, Meyer lemon, lime and tangerine trees; secret paths; steps down to a magical deck shaded by an ancient oak.
Close to the 110 and 134 freeways, Metro Gold line, Occidental College, Kitchen Mouse, Holcomb wine bar, Cafe Birdie, Ramen of York, Highland Park Bowl, Kinship Yoga, and Civil Coffee.
We are sad to leave, but excited to live at our New Mexico ranch full-time and be near our horses. Having bought and sold real estate before, we have found a private sale is a more direct, honest and personal. A real estate attorney to check the paperwork and a good escrow company is all that's required. We'll pay for the attorney, you pay for the inspection and we split the escrow.
Our price is both fair and well-researched. Dealing directly with the owners you will learn the entire history of the house, about the past owners and detailed descriptions of the work done over the years. We are very Zen people and want you to love and enjoy the home and garden as much as we have for decades to come. Side note: the house is fragrance and chemical free. All paints, floor finishes and sealers are non-toxic. The garden, organic. We are big advocates of recycling materials and incorporated old concrete and the original pavers in the garden design.
Showings by appointment. Being pre-approved for a mortgage is good. Buyer's agents welcome. See MLS.
