In 1923 the Hollywoodland sign was erected, the Coliseum and the Biltmore Hotel downtown opened, and this sweet cottage was built high in the Highland Park hills. Its peaceful vintage character continues with the wooden clapboard siding, the claw-foot bathtub in the master bath, the views across Highland Park, the quiet of the surrounding hillsides. But it has been expanded and greatly improved by the current owners, who have added modern conveniences such as central air and heat, a dishwasher, and updated kitchen and bathrooms. The lower floor, with large master suite, has been completely rebuilt and permitted from the foundation in. Featuring French doors that open onto the patio, a large walk-in closet, and the very spacious updated bath with dual sinks, it`s the perfect place to unwind. It’s a short drive to either hip happening York Blvd or to Eagle Rock’s restaurants and shops, and an easy jaunt to downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena, or Glendale.
