Behind this 1938-built traditional ranch-style front is a unique retreat that offers a home full of happy surprises. There is a spacious living room flooded with light through the almost floor-to-ceiling picture windows and complete with fireplace, coffered ceilings with recessed lighting, and original hardwood floors. The bedrooms are spacious, there is a formal dining room, an updated kitchen, a utility room and a bonus bath. The yard is also a surprise with a papaya-bearing tree (who has that in Los Angeles?), a patio for alfresco dining, and winding paths through the garden. But there`s more! Permitted as a recreation room, there is a great space for work, play, guests--you decide, and enjoy your life in this special home.
