Beautiful 1930s Spanish colonial revival in Los Feliz asking for $1.8 million

Now gracing Los Feliz Market is a beautiful Spanish Colonial Revival built in 1930. Located north of Los Feliz Boulevard, a few blocks west of the Crystal Springs Drive entrance to Griffith Park, the rooftop residence of tiles is largely hidden from view by passers-by – behind high hedges and an imposing pair of wooden gates. It’s a bit of a shame, as the approach and front of the house is a feast for the eyes, with a pretty flagstone path, a charming fountain and colorful painted tiles, but hey, at least there are pictures of listing.

Measuring 2,253 square feet, the two-story residence features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, formal living and dining room, and an office. Character features include an elegant magnesite staircase with wrought iron railing, barrel ceilings, hardwood floors, French doors and windows, archways, gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves and niches, and only antique sconces and chandeliers.

Outside, the property features a terraced rear patio with built-in fountain and seating, mature deodar cedar, silk thread and palm trees, and a detached structure divided into two sections, the larger portion serving of garage for two cars, and the smaller section intended to be used as an artist’s or writer’s studio.

On a 7,639 square foot lot, 3783 Effingham Place is listing starring Boni Bryant and Joe Reichling of Compass for an asking price of $1.775 million. The open house is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

To the right of the tiled entryway is a recessed living room with a barrel ceiling, hardwood floors, gas fireplace, and wrought iron sconces.
