This not-so-secret hideaway in View Heights feels like a relaxing oasis in the middle of the city. Some of the things we love about this house: the sunlight streaming into the open living space and bedrooms. The feeling of being connected with the outdoors while inside the house, with 2 glass french doors and big windows to the expansive yard. The chic updates and especially the recently updated instagram-worthy kitchen with warm gold accents, ready to create welcoming meals for your friends. The primary suite with chic ensuite and walk-in closet. Some great updates all around: Central HVAC with digital thermostat, Tankless water heater, newer windows, newer doors, newer roof and much more. At almost 5,500 square feet, this spacious lot lives large with a private sanctuary of a backyard. Listen to the wind rustle through the lush green leaves of the mature orange tree. Pick one of the multiple areas to lounge, and gaze up into the blue, blue sky to watch the fluffy white clouds float by. With multiple areas to eat, lounge, play and maybe even swim (in the future?), this is your absolute dream backyard.The garage is an amazing extra finished bonus space, with a huge extra pantry area. Featuring double french doors to the yard and a serving window to an outdoor bar area – the illustrator seller used to gaze upon the yard beyond as inspiration for her books. A wonderful 360 sqft addition to the approx. 1023 sqft of home. The garage could also be an opportunity to create an ADU!Just a hop, skip and jump to Culver City and the beach, View Heights is one of our favorite neighborhoods. Wide tree-lined streets with undulating hills. Warm, friendly neighbors who smile and wave as they pass by with their dogs. Fun local businesses just blocks away. Saunter over to Puerto Nuevo for a weekday diner breakfast with a friend. Need a coffee break? Hilltop coffee has some of the best coffee in the city, and don’t forget their fresh beignets! Or pop into the Googie landmark Simply Wholesome for a snack (the Jamaican patties are my fave!) The adorable Art Deco low rise shops on Slauson welcome you to explore, taste and experience. Enjoy Jon & Vinny’s and Helen’s Wines (the lunch is fabulous and never crowded!) Later, stop by Post & Beam for happy hour with delicious artisanal cocktails. Enjoy beautiful local parks like Ladera Park and North Park. Have fun on the 13 mile Park to Playa bike trail (from the Baldwin Hills Parklands to the Pacific Ocean!) or take your dog to the lake in hilly 400 acre Kenneth Hahn Park, with bonus 360 degree views of LA. All this amongst gentle hills and historic beauty, in a cozy neighborhood pocket just 20 minutes from DTLA, 10 minutes from Culver City, and 15 from the beach! Welcome to viewheightshideaway.com!
