Property Remarks

Ascend to the top of a private stairwell to be met by a sanctuary perched privately above the street in Montecito Heights. A charming porch opens to a completely rehabbed charmer, with tile entry, gleaming new wood floors, paint and moldings throughout. A blended living & dining room flow seamlessly to the recently updated kitchen with new cabinets, granite counter tops and flooring. The main floor also features 1 bedroom & 2 updated baths + inside laundry. Upstairs, two more bedrooms are also dressed in new wood flooring, paint and moldings. A private outdoor patio out back is perfect for entertaining or just unwinding in quiet repose. Close to the excitement of Downtown LA, Pasadena, & transportation, this is the quintessential LA home! Truly a must see. Buyer to do their own due diligence to verify all permits, square footage and bed/bath count.
