This fabulous fixer loaded with character came onto the market only 7 days ago! Located on a flat lot in a gorgeous neighborhood of Sherman Oaks, south of the boulevard, this 3 bedroom home and guest cottage are just begging for a loving new owner to pretty them up.
The home was built in 1940 and is about 1,526 square feet. When you walk into the home, the first thing you see is the fireplace. Wouldn’t it look great with a newly stripped and dark-stained wood mantel? The fireplace opens to the back family room as well, accented by beamed ceilings and wood built-ins.
With a little paint thinner and rust-removal, this authentic glass doorknob can shine again. The kitchen and bathroom are in the style of many of the homes in the valley built in the 1940s and 1950s, with colored tile and white wood cabinets. The bathroom has great hexagon tile floors, built-in vanity and glass knobs.
The dining room has paneled walls, a chandelier and wood built-ins leading to the kitchen through to the back door.
The guest cottage is in the back, next to the raised vegetable garden and 3 car garage. These cozy quarters include a bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. Host your guests in style or rent it out. I would’ve killed for a place like that guest house when I was in my 20s! It’s so retro and cute, you’d hardly need to fix much in it. The knotty pine living room depends on your taste, though and I think it’s a little too country for this city. But the parquet floors are in excellent shape!
The home sits on a lovely and large lot that is over 16,000 square feet.
