3120 Farnsworth Avenue. Beautifully restored 1906 Historic Craftsman!

3120 Farnsworth Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90032 asking $669,000

 My newest listing is in the Aurant neighborhood of El Sereno. This quiet, palm tree lined area is nestled between South Pasadena, the Monterey Hills, Alhambra and Downtown LA and is near the 710 and 10 freeways. This property is well located less than five minutes to Costco/Target/Home Depot and all the other big box stores in Alhambra and 10 minutes to Pasadena or Downtown LA. El Sereno is seeing the kind of growth that has been sweeping the East side of LA for well over a decade now. Exciting new restaurants are opening, houses are being restored and new families are setting down roots in this quiet little enclave. It is an great time to be in El Sereno and it's getting popular quickly. 

This home is a magnificent specimen of Craftsman. Originally built in 1906 this house was a gem from the beginning. It was built well with high ceilings plenty of signature craftsman architectural features and a spacious, regal feel. It has been lovingly restored with all new plumbing, electrical, windows, roof, fixtures and more. Keeping with the craftsman character this house is a 21st century reboot of the highest quality. We don't know what the house looked like in 1906 but I would wager this is the most beautiful it has ever been.
The home sits on a large flat lot with ample room for a pool and tennis court and probably a basketball court too.  It has a wraparound front porch perfect for taking in the California sunset amongst 100 foot palm trees.
