This gorgeous 1906 Craftsman built by the California Bungalow Company boasts all the features and warmth of a treasured homestead. By combining its classic design with a generous setback that’s elevated slightly above street level, this home exudes the sort of presence that immediately garners the attention of anyone passing by. There is no doubt that you would be thrilled to call it yours.
True to their underlying tenet, ReInhabit has saved and restored the best features of the home, including original millwork, pocket sliding doors, an abundance of built-ins, and leaded glass throughout the main level. And of course, stunning hardwood floors are found in every room.
As for livability, you can’t ask for much more. A huge living room, featuring original board-and-batten walls and a decorative fireplace, was truly designed for entertaining. A grand piano would feel perfectly at home in this veritable salon.
I love the design of the leaded glass that’s found in the cabinetry throughout the main level, and also matches the detail of the transom windows in the living room. And not to be overlooked is the unmistakable touch of designer John Douglas, whose custom light fixtures are found in every room of the house.
Pocket doors separate the living room from a formal dining room, which also opens to the back porch and deck. Even early Craftsman homes embraced California’s ideal of indoor/outdoor living!
It’s not uncommon to find that homes are designed with kitchens that are too small, making them a less-than-comfortable gathering space. Likewise, an overly expansive kitchen can have so much dead space that that its usability is diminished. Sometimes, though, they’re sized perfectly. Just like this one.
Situated between the dining room and kitchen is the home’s original pantry, ensuring you'll never be short on cabinet space.
Rounding out the first floor is a laundry room tucked neatly away behind the kitchen, which also opens to the back yard, making for a simple task if you love the scent of sheets that are dried in a warm summer breeze.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, one in each corner of the house. The master features a huge picture window with built-in seating and en suite bath.
Facing east, natural light floods into this room in the afternoon. The window seat is a great place to settle in with tea and a book at sunset.
Vintage styling is runs deep in every corner of this home.
This bedroom at the rear of the house features a spacious balcony overlooking the back yard and features peek-a-boo views of downtown and the Hollywood Hills.
No space has gone without due to consideration to its usability. Even the spacious attic offers unlimited potential. Newly finished from top to bottom, it boasts three windows making it extra bright and airy, perfect for all your storage and more.
Even the quaint back porch features gleaming fir at your feet. The only thing missing from this picture is you, with a glass of lemonade.
Outdoor living comes in many shapes and layers here, including this enclosed back porch, a huge wood deck and a concrete patio.
