Perched on a hill in the best neighborhood in Highland Park, sits the most charming updated 1928 Craftsman home. From the moment you approach the porch, with its whimsical fox lamp and wooden arts and crafts front door (with leaded glass detailing!), you know that this one is different. Far enough above the hustle and bustle of York Boulevard, yet still accessible to all of the fun. One of two properties located on a private road at the top of a cul de sac on Avenue 53, this home feels private yet not remote. 
Gorgeous wood french doors open to the expansive backyard—complete with mountain views—to expand the living area to your gorgeous private outdoor space. This is the yard that will beckon you to change your lifestyle, encouraging you to fully explore the beautiful outdoors. Take that laptop outside and bask in vitamin D while on Zoom calls. You may end up fully relaxed, even after a day of work-from-home! And when you're ready to unwind, you have access to the rest of your fully gated backyard, complete with multiple entertaining and recreation areas. Large outdoor patio, lush irrigated grass, gravel driveway and large drought-tolerant rear area that could be the perfect place for a pool or raised vegetable beds. You even have a handy shed for more storage space! And best of all, a mature lemon tree with a bountiful crop - ready for you to craft the perfect lemon meringue pie or delicious homemade lemonade.
Inside, the open concept living area is flooded with natural light, with abundant windows on the south side for that gorgeous California light. The oversized living room is ready to welcome friends, open to the generous dining area (you can finally host Thanksgiving!) and open kitchen. The recently remodeled bright kitchen features quartz counters, a deep quartz sink and a full suite of new appliances. Upgraded lighting includes beautiful fixtures from West Elm and Anthropologie. The washer/dryer closet with additional pantry space features customizable Container Store shelving. 
The spacious downstairs bedroom has a walk-in closet, beautiful big windows and a charming gold floral light fixture. The gorgeous bathroom with woodland wallpaper features a sun tunnel that floods the room with light. The second story features bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and gorgeous exposed wood beams. Wake up to breathtaking views from the upstairs main bedroom, with undulating green hills beyond. 
Newer 200 AMP electrical panel and upgraded wiring, upgraded plumbing, newer roof and ice cold HVAC complete this home. There are even plans available for a future expansion.
This is the perfect retreat in the middle of everywhere you want to be. Close to Occidental College and great restaurants, cafes and boutiques on York like Cafe de Leche, Joy, Kumquat, Nativo, Town Pizza, Rosie Bunny Bean pet supplies, Belle's Bagels, Sticky Rice Thai, Goldfish, Ramen of York, Scoops, and a ton of adorable boutiques and shops and salons. Welcome to, a truly special outdoor experience in Northeast LA.
