Welcome to your home away from home at our charming and comfortable Victorian Walkup! The structure is one of the oldest in Los Angeles, it was built just before the turn of the century and has been many things over the years, however it is now a newly remodeled, luxury 3 bedrooms townhouse style unit with every feature needed for a relaxing and easy stay.
Nothing here is from Ikea, like you will find in many low-end rentals- the house is furnished with antiques, real artwork, luxury fabrics & rugs, and high-end fixtures. There is free wifi, highspeed internet and a big screen smart TV. The kitchen features commercial built-in appliances and is fully equipped for a chef or simple take out. There is dining seating for 8 either at the 4-top dining table or the quartz bar in the kitchen.
The house features three bedrooms with new mattresses and luxury bedding. Bedroom 1 is a queen size with an antique bed and built-in bench, Bedroom 2 is also an antique bed with a dresser and a large closet, and Bedroom 3 features a twin over full bunkbed decorated in Americana with another large closet. There is a new family size washer and dryer as well as a luxurious spa bath done in a variety of European marble & limestone with a teak bench and luxury fixtures.
The soaring ceilings exhibit the original beams from the 1895 construction and have a dormer window that floods the space with light all day. The heart pine floors are also original to the space, as well as the charming windows and front door.
We have a secure gated parking lot and the unit is on the second floor with a small terrace with seating for two. Our neighborhood is quite walkable, and has many more great locals within a short drive. Within walking distance is holistic breakfast & lunch spot Amara Kitchen, the hipster Offbeat Bar, Starbucks, fast casual My Taco, and the Highland Park Goldline metro station which can take you all over Los Angeles with no traffic delays! No wonder why LAWEEKLY has called Highland Park "LA's Greatest Neighborhood"
We have some great restaurant, bar, and activity recommendations upon request and we highly recommend the OpenTable app for the best dining around town. There is also a year-round open-air farmer's market, open 4-8 PM on Thursdays, featuring fruit, vegetables & local vendors only 1.5 miles away- The South Pasadena Farmer's Market on El Centro Street. If you're in the mood for a great craft beer, head over to Highland Park Brewery about 1.5 miles west of the house on York- there are several great little spots around it to try also like Donut Friend, Cafe De Leche, and the York to name a few!
Our neighborhood is one of the oldest in Los Angeles; for more LA History visit the Heritage Square Museum to see structures from the Victorian era and exhibits that highlight life in the first 100 years of California's statehood, located only 2.5 miles away on Homer Street. Or for even deeper history visit the Lummis Home, a 4,000-square-foot Rustic American Craftsman stone house built in the late 19th century, which is on the National Register of Historical Places and is designated as Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument. Lummis is also only 2.5 miles away off of Avenue 43.
