This Spanish jewel sits on a quiet street amongst character homes, near the vibrant hub of York and Eagle Rock Boulevard. It is an estate in miniature proudly perched above the sidewalk and street, shaded by a jacaranda tree and a tall palm. Walk by the new Xeriscape-style front yard landscaping featuring drought-tolerant plants and up the stairs to the solid wood door with wrought iron peep door. Then enter the classic formal living room and admire the burnished hardwood floors, soaring ceiling, decorative fireplace, new sconces, and new wrought iron chandelier. Turn to see the true centerpiece of this living room: a spectacular leaded glass Palladian window. Step up to the formal dining room with large windows, new drapes and new oil-rubbed bronze chandelier. The charming kitchen features Saltillo-like ceramic tile flooring, a coordinating tile counter, wood cabinets, and a double porcelain sink with new pendant lights hanging overhead. The hallway offers a new light fixture and plenty of storage from the built in drawer and cabinet unit. Off the hallway is a sunny bathroom with a shower over a soaking tub, a pedestal sink, new lighting over the framed mirror, a built-in chest of drawers and decorative tiled walls. The bedroom has a ceiling fan, plenty of windows and a walk-in closet with shoe rack and an extra storage cabinet with access to the attic. The detached one car garage provides an additional 112 square feet of finished space, and is currently used as a sophisticated office/studio with extra storage in the back. The private, newly landscaped backyard features a flagstone patio where you can sip cool lemonade or enjoy a backyard BBQ, shaded by a magnificent pine tree. The home has a unit air conditioner, newer furnace (2008), copper plumbing and a newer sewer pipe. It is within walking distance of the popular Auntie Em’s Kitchen and within biking distance of prestigious Occidental College, one of the oldest liberal arts colleges on the West Coast. The new owner will enjoy the proximity to Eagle Rock’s eclectic shops, art galleries, wine bars, independent coffee houses and top restaurants, while being only minutes from the freeway and all surrounding LA areas.
