Mt. Washington-Mid Century home amidst the urban forest. 3581 Division St. 90065

9% Price drop! Now listed at $399,000!!

Mount Washington is a unique place. The hilly area in Los Angeles North of Silver Lake and South of Eagle Rock is a mecca for Yogis, Midwives, Outdoors Types, Old Hippies and generally progressive and intelligent people. Mount Washington has a zen like quality that draws people to it who never leave. There is a stillness, a universal calm in the air around Mount Washington that is indescribable here on a blog, one needs to experience it for themselves. Few places in this urban jungle of Los Angeles exist where people can be alone in a silent natural setting above and away from the noisy city life. This area reminds me of the forest moon Endor from Return Of The Jedi. Large trees, lush green hillsides and quiet serenity-and it's only a 15
minute drive to downtown Los Angeles or Pasadena and 10 minutes to Silver Lake or Glendale.

3581 Division st. is my new listing in this neighborhood. It is a well cared for mid century modern that is a standard sale. No waiting for short sales or dealing with the "REO mafia" bank foreclosures. This home is ready to move in.

The property was recently remodeled and features a new kitchen with gorgeous dark wood
cabinets and granite countertops+backsplashes.

There is a luxurious formal dining room which is rare for the area. The dining room has French Doors that lead to an outdoor living/dining area. The celebrity restaurateur selling this property had to make sure that his dinner guests would be well taken care of and the dining room is a focal point of the home.

The home has two bedrooms and one full bath above and a seperate in-law quarters below with a 3/4 bath and another bedroom area with storage. Additionally the house has a two car garage and street parking is never a problem in this quiet neighborhood.
Behind the house the terraced yard is a tranquil zen garden, ideal for an urban gardening project or a hiking enthusiast.

The house is beautiful throughout and shows very well. For an appointment to see inside 3581 Division st., contact Sky Minor at 310-709-8283. Listing Price $399,000.
