This Friday saw me visiting a property with a client on Frankin Avenue in the Hollywood hills, 8618 Franklin Ave. A 2 bed 1.75 bath mid Century modern post and beam home with canyon and city views. all for the modest price tag of $1,050,000.
This is a compact home, and quaint and simple. As I stepped through the lloyd wright inspired front door and I was greeted with a floor to ceiling windows bringing in the afternoon light and wonderful views of the shady palm leafs from the canyon below. The lounge is a good entertaining area and open plan which continues to the kitchen area.
One of my favorite surprises of this home was the stainless steel 50’s appliances. They look to be original from the era but in pristine condition and fully functional. Maybe original to the home from 1955 when the house was first built. The kitchen although older, is full of charm and any distinguished family would be proud to host any shmoozing party from this kitchen.
On to the bedrooms…The bedrooms are cozy but wall to wall mirrors help with the illusion of grandeur. Out through the back deck and down to the lower grounds and you can find yourself in a well landscaped pretty garden that strikes me as easy to maintain. There is also a generous 2 car garage as well. You can tell the owners of this house looked after their home and probably enjoyed many years of uninterrupted peace here. This quietly located home would suit a writer or a great starter home for a young family. I love this location, i like this house. For those who want the simple life. Great value for this area.
