3719 Wellington Rd Los Angeles, CA 90016
Buckingham Road is one of my favorite ways through the city. Winding through different eras of buildings, it feels like an Epcot ride through the history of the prosperity of Los Angeles. 1920s and 1930s Spanish Style beauties lead into neighborhoods full of 1940s and 1950s midcentury tracts built to house employees of the booming aerospace industry. A short hop off Buckingham sits an updated Spanish Modern with style so sharp it takes your breath away.
Crenshaw Manor is a gracious collection of homes that shine with the pride of the homeowners who have lived and thrived here for more than half a century. If I dropped you here blindfolded, you may think you're in Cheviot Hills. However, a home of this caliber would cost you well upwards of $2 million there. Priced at $775,000, this 3 bedroom 2 bathroom 1,635 sq foot house makes style attainable and affordable.
Bright light streams through the beautiful bay window in the living room, illuminating the charming character of the original features. This house feels like quintessential Southern California, accented with light hardwood floors and beautiful white arched doorways. Open a window to feel the ocean breeze that whips up through the city around late afternoon.
This kitchen screams for the fresh produce from the nearby Saturday Farmer's Market at the Baldwin Hills malls.
Bring the best of the city indoors with large sliding doors out to the low maintenance backyard.
The best of Southern California easy style is echoed in the backyard full of potential. I see cafe lights illuminating your long farm table under the stars, listening to soft music as you polish off the rest of that last bottle of wine you picked up in Los Olivos.
