ADDRESS: 5867 Tuxedo Terrace
This cottage makes our hearts flutter and our minds think that fairytales do come true! The home displays many components of a classic French Normandy, including its gable entryway, stone on the exterior, hip roofs, and intricate windows. Appearing like it is straight out of a storybook, this home exudes playfulness and imagination! It was named LA Historical-Cultural Monument #1031 as the Frederick A. Hanson Residence.
The character in this living room makes us overjoyed! A soaring ceiling with dramatic arches, a period fireplace, magical windows with artistic detail, and ceramic tile floors complete the space. It is clear that immense craftsmanship went into the design, building, and maintaining of this beautiful home and it certainly upholds its historic appeal!
The dining room features a paned window that allows beautiful sunlight to shine through and decorated beams on the ceiling. We imagine Sunday brunches enjoyed at the table with hot tea and hummingbirds circling outside the window!
The kitchen boasts a modern revival, including white cabinetry, high end stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, colorful tile backsplash, and a sliding barn door.
Open your bedroom windows to let the breeze blow through and take in the peaceful views of trees and greenery. This is the perfect spot to curl up under the covers, unplug from the internet, and enjoy a good book! The bathroom is vintage-inspired and charming.
The attic is a converted bedroom that would also make a wonderful office or study. It is quirky in style, with a peaked ceiling, beams, odd shaped windows, and a short built-in bookshelf. It perfectly fits the old-world vibe of the home!
Even the backyard is whimsical, with a rounded short wood door, red brick tiling, privacy, and plenty of greenery. It feels like your very own secret garden!
Bonus features include central a/c and heat.
This home holds a mystical persona that we cannot get enough of. Tucked away in the hills close to Griffith Observatory, it feels private and removed from city life. We love that this snapshot of history and architectural gem still exists today – ADORE!
