LOCATION! CHARACTER! HOME + ADU: This charming, light-filled, turn of the century home (w/NEW ROOF Nov. 2022) is a contributor to the heart of the West Adams/Normandie HPOZ. It owes much of its original eclectic character to Colonial, American Four Square and Craftsman architecture. Greeted by a grand porch with Tudor arches, one enters a spacious formal living room with high coved ceilings including a fully restored gas and wood burning fireplace and original hardwood floors. From the living room, a large formal dining room with French doors, original built-in armoires and vintage sconce light fixtures create an elegant ambiance for entertaining. Modern gourmet kitchen with a large granite island and French doors that open to an over-sized deck overlooking the backyard with 12’ hedge, centrally located Canary Island palm tree. Massive laundry room, suitable for a walk-in pantry; plus a half bathroom. Upstairs: four spacious bedrooms include a primary retreat with a luxurious ensuite bath. Situated at the end of the long, gated driveway (which is wired for powered gates) is a brand-new, detached 2-car garage with top of the line powered garage doors and separate artist studio. * Home is within the USC Neighborhood Homeownership subsidy area for USC employees, PLUS, there is the favorable First Republic "Eagle" loan program.
