This updated 1940's Ranch-style home with inviting rustic qualities is located on a cul-de-sac just one house down from a pedestrian entrance to Debs Park. The beautiful Los Angeles regional park is a hidden gem of the parks system that features numerous amenities including barbeque pits, picnic tables, bike paths, hiking trails, and a pond with turtles. The home is set back from the street with a thoughtfully designed, drought-tolerant entry garden. A large, welcoming front porch is created by the overhang of the home's side-gabled roof. Inside, an entry vestibule leads to a spacious formal living room with a beamed-ceiling and its original hearth. Other understatedly chic 1940's elements include hardwood floors, double-hung windows, and elegant wood and brickwork. The connected dining room features a bay window facing the canopy of a mature tree and a built-in bench. In the back of the house, facing the property's large flat backyard with views to Debs Park and the hills beyond, is the laundry room with its Miele appliances, kitchen, and bathroom. The kitchen is two-sided and allows for a fantastic circular flow through the house between the social spaces and the two bedrooms on the west side. The primary bedroom faces the verdant garden which abuts the park. In addition to a large lawn, the backyard features two patios for lounging and dining, a two car garage, and a finished workshop. The neighborhood is at the border of residential areas El Sereno, Hermon, and Rose Hills, and is just minutes from Highland Park, South Pasadena, and DTLA.
