A Spanish-style bungalow is now up for grabs in the trendy Highland Park area of Los Angeles, California. Although nearly a century old, the home benefits from modern updates that preserve its original character—inside, floors covered in warm-hued Saltillo terracotta tiles steal the show.
Named after the city where they are made in Mexico, authentic Saltillo tiles are crafted by families of artisans using regional riverbed clay. The manufacturing process has changed somewhat over the course of 100 years, but each tile is still crafted in part by hand, resulting in variations that give each piece a unique look. Traditionally, the tiles came in only a few sizes and colors, while modern options include an array of shapes and sizes.
Offering two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the 864-square-foot home is located within walking distance of many popular restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. The .04-acre lot manages to squeeze in a backyard patio with a dining and seating area, as well as a space for lounging beside the front porch. The home was recently listed for $775,000.
