Description

This amazing property in North Monrovia includes two separate houses on an XL lot surrounded by mature landscaping that offers the utmost in privacy. The original 1914 Craftsman sits at the rear of the property and was likely a caretakers home before the lots were subdivided in the early 20th century. This 518-sq ft one-bedroom cottage features wood siding, gable vents, covered front porch & the original entry door. There is a living room with ceiling fan, a full bedroom, and good-sized bathroom with claw foot tub/shower combo, vintage tile flooring, handmade decorative ceramic tile, blt-in cabinetry & a small wood vanity. The kitchen has wood cabinetry, double stainless sink, vintage stove & an attached breakfast room. There is also a laundry room with a door to the yard. The front house with an address of 161 N. Canyon is a remarkable 1,435 square foot French Eclectic built in 1923 that blends rustic simplicity with Classical elegance. The exterior features wood shingle siding, large brick chimney, steep hipped roof, exposed rafter tails & multi-light original windows. As you enter through the original wood front door, the first thing you notice is all of the unpainted Brazilian gumwood crown moldings, door trims and baseboards. The living room offers a decorative brick fireplace with wood mantle, original floor register & blt-in glass-fronted bookcases. The adjacent formal dining room has more blt-in bookcases, window seat with storage, period wallpaper & a swinging door into the kitchen. Also off the living room is a sunroom/family room that could be used as a 3rd bedroom with arched windows, carpeting & a door to the rear yard. The kitchen has ample wood cabinetry with ornate nickel hardware, vinyl flooring, beadboard backsplash, vintage stove, curved walls, double sink & an attached laundry area with basement access & a door to the back yard. There are 2 large bedrooms, one with a wall of blt-in book shelves, that share a hallway bathroom with cast iron tub/shower combo surrounded by subway tiles, handmade ceramic tile, small wood vanity with glass hardware & the original medicine cabinet. Other amenities include central air & heat, original windows, covered back patio, fruit trees & a detached two-car garage. The City has suggested that this property may qualify for landmarking, which could offer the opportunity to apply for the Mills Act Contract with significant tax savings. If you love vintage homes, this property will take your breath away!
