Description

Located in the Madison Heights neighborhood on a tree-lined street, an enchanting 1906 wood-shingled cottage with an equally charming guest house has been loved, cared for, and improved over the years. At first approach, rose bushes line the walkway to a welcoming front porch with a bench swing harkening back to another era and a slower pace. A handsome carved wood with beveled glass front door is 1906 original, as are the hardwood floors. The living room and dining room have high ceilings, multiple windows, and the dining room has a bayed window with a built-in window seat and storage. Built-in bookshelves line the walls of the dining room, and there is a built-in buffet. The kitchen has been updated, the counters are soapstone, and there is ample cabinet storage. The kitchen is open to a den, with a powder room and laundry closet: beadboard paneling, wood floors, and multiple windows with garden vistas and light.Just outside, there is a lovely covered back porch. Designed with attention to detail, this is one of the many great features of this property. The main bedroom has two closets, built-in bookshelves, and hardwood floors. There is a shared full bath and a second bedroom. The guest house, built in 1943, consists of a great room with a stone gas fireplace, beamed ceiling, skylight, and a large picture bay window. The floors are tile throughout. The kitchen has tile counters, a breakfast bar and is open to the great room. The bedroom has excellent closet space, and there is an attached 3/4 tiled bath with a shower. The guest house also has a private covered brick patio and gardens surrounding it. The mature landscaping offers many trees, flowering vines, camellias, and roses. This is wonderful neighborhood only two blocks from the South Lake Avenue Shopping district and just a few more to Cal Tech.
