In 1941, an architect designed this classic California ranch to take advantage of the views of the sun setting behind the Verdugos and the marine breeze that wended its way up from downtown every afternoon. Lovingly restored by the current owners over the last several years, this home is now an artistic, fun retreat from the City, 10 minutes from City Hall. Each bedroom has a door to the amazing garden, the kitchen has French doors out to the extended living space of the patio. There is a bonus den and half bath that add to the functionality of the main living area, which also features hardwood floors throughout, built-in bookcases, a fireplace, large picture windows, and central air and heat. The original 1941 pink bathroom has been upgraded and restored but preserved, and features a separate shower with an Eagle Rock manufactured glass shower door! Downstairs, the garage is used as a workshop/studio and has additional storage & utility areas. The garden paradise of a back yard will delight and amaze you. There are landscaped terraces all the way up to the back fence with a waterfall spilling down 7 levels to the koi pond. There are seating areas everywhere for a couple to a crowd, with a patio at the top meant for sleeping under the stars. Designed successfully to attract such fauna as Monarch butterflies, this is a nature lover`s dream come true.
