An Artfully Reimagined California Craftsman Asks $1.2M
Neighborhoods south of Hollywood in the heart of Los Angeles continue to evolve as new residents flock to the area, charmed by the Craftsman bungalows that line many streets. One such property on South Hobart Boulevard was recently listed for sale, offering up a modern take on the quintessential style. Originally built in 1912, the renovated home also celebrates the California sunshine with a radiant backyard and art studio.
With three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and 1,720 square feet of living space, the home offers a traditional bungalow floor plan that unfolds from front to back. A broad living area and reading nook stretch across the front of the home while a hallway divides public and private spaces in the back half. The interior gleams from natural light thanks to the many windows overlooking a landscape of lush bougainvillea and plumeria trees. Following the renovation in 2008, the home was featured in the coffee-table book Dreaming Small: Intimate Interiors, published by Rizzoli, as well as in the French edition of Vogue.
"With its proximity to L.A.'s vibrant Koreatown, the area surrounding this home has been changing for some years now," says listing agent Michele Moses. "Many K-town eateries and karaoke bars are all within walking distance, as are the areas of Hancock Park and Larchmont Village." Paramount Studios and Netflix's ever-growing Hollywood offices are also both less than a five-minute drive away. Keep scrolling to see more of the property, currently listed for $1,198,000.
