Built in 1953, this charming three-bedroom, two-bath mid-century ranch home is perfectly sited on a private hilltop lot, offering stunning and sweeping views from downtown Los Angeles to the snow-capped San Gabriel mountains. A spacious parquet floored foyer greets you as you enter, offering optional flow towards the private bedrooms or the spacious communal living/dining rooms, center-balanced by an angular stacked stone fireplace. Southern light fills the space from the large windows, highlighted by a classic mid-century corner picture window selectively designed to capture the hilltop framed view of the metropolitan LA skyline in the distance. The sweet 1950s kitchen boasts decorative built-ins, sunny yellow tile countertops, and the distinctive architectural feature of a glass block backsplash. The family room offers another space for gathering or could be a fantastic home office or art studio. All this with a two-car garage and endless outdoor space. This special home was built and has been owned by the same family for the last 70 years, providing a unique opportunity for the next family that appreciates original character along with uncommon spectacular views. A rare market offering of incredible location with the tremendous prospect to realize its continued potential. This beauty has fantastic bones, she just needs some TLC! Truly a dream home in the making. If you plan to visit one of the public open houses, please do NOT drive up the shared driveway. Parking is required on the street. Your respect for the neighbors is greatly appreciated.
