Lovable meets livable within the walls of this picturesque 1909 Craftsman home in Saint Andrew's Square. This soothing, gardened retreat is centrally located near Larchmont Village, a stones throw from Hollywood, Koreatown and Silver Lake. A timeless original, built before the first film studios in L.A., that's been continuously modernized for comfort, convenience and home-office needs. As you walk through the floral pergola and up the front steps, you glance at the inviting porch and head for the stately cross-cut oak door. Once inside, your eye soaks up features like the stained-glass chandelier, formal dining room, brick fireplace, ample built-in storage, wainscotting and picture molding, distinctive to the period's architectural style. Down the hall, two bedrooms and a full bath flank the Spanish-tile kitchen featuring updated stainless-steel appliances like a professional-grade oven. Behind the kitchen sits the laundry room with back door and stairs down to the California basement, perfect for storage or a workshop or perhaps a wine cellar for the budding sommelier? Central A/C, smart thermostat and sprinkler system, updated electrical, foundation, chimney and sewer line rejuvenate this heirloom home. At the end of the main hallway, enter the bright and airy deluxe master suite, with en-suite bath, walk-in closet and a French door that opens onto the deck. Stand under the deck's pergola and survey the lush garden and shade-giving Peruvian pepper tree. The space is full of opportunities for outdoor dining, play and new growth in the raised beds. At the far end of the yard sits the detached, climate-controlled home office (or guest quarters!), complete with its own bath. The scent of wisteria, roses, orange blossom, lavender and rosemary fill the air. The neighboring grandeur of Windsor Square and Hancock Park make for charming walks to Larchmont (farmers market, coffee shops) and beyond. Other walkable destinations include the historic Wilshire Branch Library, the Purple Line Metro station, and the sparkling new YMCA for a swim or workout. Just a 5-minute drive to Paramount Studios, or 10-minutes to Silver Lake and Fairfax/The Grove. This home is notably within the top-rated 3rd Street Elementary school zone.
