Originally built in 1922, this Spanish lady has managed to retain her original beauty even after 96 years. A real treat to find in the Eagle Rock real estate market, this home has it all.
Miraculously intact after years of neglect then flipped by an investor who was sensitive to appropriate updates and additions, it was then treasured and improved by the current owners who have loved and cared for it throughout their 10-year stewardship, preserving its seductive charms.
The living room is spacious and elegant with a unique picture window and a beautiful decorative fireplace. Two of the 3 bathrooms feature the original distinctive tile and fixtures while the third salutes the style.
The master bedroom is a special retreat whose French doors open to a patio in the backyard.
From the walled patio with outdoor fountain to the huge flat backyard with space for gardens, perhaps a pool, there is the consistent vision that life can be as gracious and simple as it is in our fantasies of Alta California before it became the 31st state.
