The 1920s Character of This Los Angeles Bungalow Shines After a Recent Remodel

Natural light allows the period details to pop against a crisp white interior.

New to the market in Los Angeles is a well-preserved bungalow located in the heart of Atwater Village. Built in 1924, the 1,249-square-foot abode now shines after a restoration by its current owners. The home's airy interior now flows out onto a cozy backyard complete with an all-new guest house and salt-water swimming pool.

Surrounded by thick rows of shrubbery and trees, the bungalow at 3437 Glenhurst Avenue offers a serene retreat from its surroundings. A cozy front porch anchors the home along the street and greets visitors through a color entryway.

In contrast to the dark facade, the interior is painted in all white. Windows line nearly every wall, allowing in an abundance of natural light.

Inside, refinished hardwoods run throughout, while a crisp white color palette effortlessly picks up earth-toned accent shades. Arched entryways and coved ceilings are just a few of the many period details dotting the interior. In the kitchen, a vintage O’Keefe & Merritt stove complements the recently added custom cabinets and appliances.

A vintage stove awaits in the kitchen, along with stone countertops and ample cabinetry. Windows above the sink overlook the backyard.

A quaint breakfast nook, complete with an L-shaped bench sits the corner opposite a door leading outside.

Yet, the home's location is likely enough to garner attention from interested real estate buyers. Positioned within walking distance to the L.A. River, Griffith Park, and Glendale Boulevard, this one will likely go fast. Scroll ahead to see more of the property, currently listed for $1,350,000.
