Original 1909 Craftsman with 2,362 sqft located in one of the most coveted Mt Washington cul-de-sac surrounding by the 35-acre Elyria Canyon park. Completely remodeled while keeping its original character and details, this house offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms plus family room and open living space. Sweeping views to Downtown and the Observatory from the enormous back deck and to the San Gabriel Mountains from the front porch. Large and mostly flat 11,000 sqft lot with vegetable garden, trampoline, wood shed and a lot of extra outdoors space. Within walking distance to the acclaimed Mt Washington Elementary school, this property encompasses Mt Washington’s true vibe. With the trails and the ever-present wildlife (coyote, hawk, owl, raccoon…) at your front door, it’s mind blowing to imagine that you are only 15 minutes away from DTLA. The interesting backstory is that an illustrious person named John Howard Lawson, is said to have lived in this house. He was the first president of the Writers Guild of America and he is famously remembered as one of the “Hollywood Ten”, the first group of film professionals to be blacklisted in the late 40’s for their links to the communist party.
