Open House Obsession: Evocative Spanish Style in Walkable Beverly Grove, $1.75M

By Philip Ferrato

Where: 6307 Drexel Avenue, Beverly Grove
When: Saturday and Sunday, December 17 and 18 from 12:00pm-3:00pm
Asking: $1,745,000
What: At some point in it’s recent life, the owner of this c.1928 3-bed, 3-bath Beverly Grove bungalow gave it a charmingly simple Baroque facade, walling much of the front in classic style, with stucco and wrought iron between the garage and living room. A variation on the kind of facade you’d find in UNESCO World Heritage sites like Cuernavaca and Morelia, it creates a welcoming, private patio that connects directly to the living room (at top).

The interior is compact; vintage details take their cues from LA’s grand Spanish and Mediterranean houses of the 1920s’.

Two bedrooms open to the well-hedged and charmingly overgrown yard.

What We Love: The workhorse kitchen, below, lacks nothing, plus the house is an easy walk to The Grove and The Farmer’s Market.

More: Check out the listing for additional images and details. Below, a pergola tucked away in the back is perfect place for long evenings with friends.
