Bordering the trendy neighborhood of Silverlake and the vibrant cultural hub of Koreatown, Rampart Village offers one of LA's most convenient locations, just minutes to DTLA, Hollywood, Griffith Park, and multiple freeways.
Built in 1926, when old-world craftsmanship and period charm were at its peak, this French Revival masterpiece, includes a detached and legal 2nd unit (zoned multi family residential)/Duplex) which has been relatively unaltered, presenting an incredible opportunity for its next owner to bring this architecturally designed crown jewel back to its original glory.
With its narrow massing, steep roof, and oriel bay window, the home is perfectly sited on the 8,749 square foot lot (per assessor) and contributes a stunning curb appeal to this gem of a neighborhood. The foyer, located on the side and center of the home, is grand and features a breathtaking staircase with window and coat & powder rooms. The gracious step-down formal living room is anchored by a stunning fireplace, high ceilings w/ hewn ceiling beams, and a double set of French doors leading to a private side flagstone patio. An elegant sun-drenched formal dining room looks out to the rear patio, lap pool, and spa. The original kitchen w/ a butler's pantry and breakfast room, is well-designed with plenty of storage, and direct access to the formal dining room, a bedroom w/ en suite bath, a laundry room, the rear yard, and a spacious California basement. Upstairs, and off the 2nd floor landing, there are 4 generous and well-proportioned bedrooms all w/ en suite baths, abundant closet space, a Juliet balcony, and a walk-in linen closet w/ storage.
Set behind the automatic driveway gate is a sparkling lap pool & spa, a detached two-car garage w/ storage room, and a 931 sq. ft. (taped) second unit which features a main level kitchen w/ additional living space and a second story bedroom, bath, and bonus room.
Many original features remain intact including; archways, hardwood floors throughout, coved ceilings, wood swing-out windows, light fixtures, doors & hardware, niches, built-in storage & cabinetry, and dumbwaiter.
