This traditional home with a sophisticated flair sits north of Colorado Boulevard near the top of one of Eagle Rock’s most desired streets. The beautiful, wide avenue lined with a canopy of camphor trees is reminiscent of a rural America far from the hectic pace of Los Angeles. The home is a short walk from Eagle Rock’s eclectic shops, art galleries, wine bars, independent coffee houses and top restaurants, yet minutes from the freeway and all surrounding LA areas.

The elegant foyer of the home with black slate floors and a charming brick accent wall leads to the expansive living room featuring an exposed wood beam ceiling, brick wood/gas fireplace, new recessed lights and Brazilian cherry laminate flooring. The open floor plan expands into a 350 square foot bonus room, currently used as a casual family room and den. This room features plenty of windows, oil-rubbed bronze sconces and plantation-style ceiling fan. Step out from the family room to the smartly designed private backyard with a brick patio and two grassy areas. The fully enclosed yard features professionally landscaped flower beds and views of the nearby hilltops.

The dining room adjoins the formal living room on the other side, flowing into the charming kitchen with new recessed lights, tile counters and newly painted wood cabinets with new hardware. The separate laundry room off the kitchen has several storage cabinets as well as a convenient half bathroom.

Off the foyer is a large private bedroom that makes a terrific guest room or in-law unit. It has plenty of closet space, large windows, and a sizable adjacent office/workroom featuring wall-to-wall work counter with shelves above and below.

On the other side of the house are three more spacious bedrooms all with wall-to-wall closets, textured plush carpeting and plenty of windows. The master has a bathroom with enclosed shower, slate-style tile floor, framed mirror and freshly painted cabinetry with new hardware. There is also a full bathroom off the hallway with a shower/tub, extra large framed mirror, ceramic tile counter and tile floor.

At the end of the hallway is direct access to an oversized 2-car garage with plenty of room for extra storage including a loft area. The home includes automatic sprinklers, central air/heat, security system, and additional storage in attic area.

The home sits in the boundaries of award-winning, top-ranked schools including Blue Ribbon designee Eagle Rock Elementary and Eagle Rock Junior/Senior High, an International Baccalaureate School with a magnet program serving gifted and high ability students.

Artists, writers and filmmakers have long been attracted to this community, which the LA Times has called “cozy” and “hip”. Frequently used as a location for Hollywood movies and commercials, Eagle Rock is also home to Occidental College, one of the oldest liberal arts colleges on the West Coast. Residents enjoy a small town feel where neighbors say hello to each other while walking or riding their bikes and take pride in their friendly neighborhood.
