Sold for $2,450,00
Welcome to Treehaven, a sprawling, woodsy compound located in the Northeast L.A. neighborhood of Mount Washington. Treehaven enjoys Mills Act status (L.A. historic-cultural monument No. 392), and was brought to life by the Architectural Design Co., a design-build firm that worked in L.A. and Pasadena in the early 1900s. The 1915 Craftsman-style main house is set back from the street and is canopied by large cedar, elm, eucalyptus, and palm trees, some more than 100 years old. The spacious front porch offers views that extend over the front yard garden, across the Arroyo Seco, and towards Ernest E. Debs Park in Montecito Heights. Built-in, glass-fronted cabinets in the den, dining, and living rooms, and rich-hued wood trim and doors throughout, are well-preserved and handsome. At the street, there is a four-car garage. The rear 1908 guesthouse is a duplex. Each unit is approximately 1,000 square feet and has its own entry and outdoor picnic/garden area. One half is a several-room studio, with classic wood details, currently used as an art, writing, and office space. The other unit, with separate entry, is a two-bedroom rental or guest quarters with recent upgrades. It is currently occupied by wonderful, reliable tenants, paying current market value. Treehaven visitors often comment that walking onto the property is like entering another world – a timeless Craftsman retreat, located 10 minutes by foot from the Metro Gold Line’s Southwest Museum station, 10 minutes by vehicle from Downtown L.A., and even closer to the vibrant Highland Park shopping and restaurant scenes on York Blvd. and Figueroa Street.
