Open House Obsession: Lovely Los Feliz Spanish Revival, $3.7M


The winding streets of Los Feliz are full of handsome Spanish Revival homes, and this one is particularly sweet, taking advantage of a sloping site with the typical picturesque massing of the time, white stucco and terracotta tile above a rough stone wall.

Originally built in 1936 for one Vernon Nussbaum, who made his fortune in wholesale fruits and vegetables, this classic beauty has been beautifully renovated, and appropriately (although perhaps not intentionally) for a house built for a grocer, the renovated kitchen’s a knockout, an open expanse stretching from the dining room to the pool with a trompe l’oeil block pattern in tile, all leading to a sybaritic patio, outdoor kitchen, and pool.

The back of the house is especially private, surrounded by mature hedges.

The dining room has a view of Downtown LA and retains its original Art Deco details; the living room is a vast timbered space with a fireplace.

What We Love: The house has been updated without losing it’s essentially romantic 1930’s charm; they did a great job on all the baths, and the master suite bath (below) manages to be both period-appropriate and sexy, simultaneously.
