This quirky Spanish-style residence in the middle of Van Nuys is just blocks from the 405 Freeway, but it sits on nearly an acre of land and has a distinctly rustic aesthetic.
Built in 1935, it’s got hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, white brick walls, built-in shelving, and indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The main house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms spread across 1,715 square feet of living space, but there’s also a pair of guest houses built in a similarly quaint design style.
The compound sits on a grassy lot and the main house opens to a spacious patio overlooked by a second-level balcony. There’s plenty of room for outdoor seating and a built-in fire pit. Nearby is a swimming pool and shaded sitting area. There’s even a separate patio space and a barbecue area on the other side of the house.
The gated property is asking $925,000.
