Overview

About the property

1930's home in Atwater Village. Charming, remodled classic.

From a quiet tree-lined street, you'll step into the cool atmosphere of this L.A. mid-century 3 Bdrm/2 Bath classic located in Atwater Village - a 'hip' residential enclave near downtown that is close to everything L.A. has to offer. This home provides charm and privacy and is furnished with everything to make you feel at home in the 21st century: Vintage fixtures, lighting and decor. The kitchen is updated with modern appliances and chef's utensils. Outdoor dining and garden environments are spacious and serene. There is plenty of light and fresh air in each bedroom. Special touches include antique and mid-century furniture plus an array of original California regionalist art reflecting Los Angeles in the 30's and 40's. It's like stepping onto a set of 'Chinatown'. It's a few minute's walk to restaurants and shops along Glendale and Los Feliz Boulevards. Explore all the hiking trails and activities in Griffith Park... take the kids to the carousel, the little train, the observatory and the L.A. zoo all within minutes by car. Walk the horse trail along the historic L.A. river. The 9-hole / 3-par Los Feliz golf course is just 7 blocks away.

Enjoy the convenience of access this location has to offer... minutes by car to 405, 101 and 110 freeways, Silverlake and Los Feliz districts, downtown, Griffith Park, Observatory, L.A. Zoo, Autry museum, Pasadena and Glendale and, of course, L.A.'s famous beaches.

Spacious, comfortable 3 bed let, close to amenities, in a safe area.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this 3 bed in a residential area of LA as part of our road trip from the UK with our 11 & 14 year old boys. It was close to the freeway (but not too close!), within walking distance of amenities and close to Griffiths Park with the Hollywood sign, the Observatory and the LA Zoo.

The let was in a safe area, felt comfortable, has 3 good sized bedrooms, with laundry facilities, dishwasher and a good sized refrigerator/freezer.

My only comments to make it 5 star would be to clean the dishwasher and fix the tiles and put a light in the shower cubicle upstairs - the upstairs bathroom felt a little tired. It was perfectly clean and serviceable though - no complaints just the difference between 4 and 5 stars. Would stay here again if the occasion arises.

Beautiful character property in a lovely residential area. Close to local shops and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful character property. Its located in a quiet residential area within walking distance of shops and restaurants in lovely Atwater Village. A car is useful to get out and about to see the sites and there is ample parking space on the drive and the street outside.

The house has every amenity you could need with a fully equipsd kitchen and separate utility room. It is extremely spacious and is exactly as described. The garden is great with a gas barbecue which we used a couple of times.

An outside clothes line or airer would have been useful but there was a tumble dryer. I think Europeans are just used to drying outside where possible.

I highly recommend this property and we really enjoyed our time there.

Thank you

  • 5 of 5

In this property in Atwater, we felt right at home. We had plenty of space, the beds were great, and we had many wonderful places to walk to. We almost didn't want to leave for the second stage of our trip. I highly recommend this property.
