The Hollywood/Santa Monica neighborhood is hot right now, with hundreds of families looking for the perfect home in this sweet little subdivision, but thanks to higher prices and a market that is poised for even more growth, it’s hard to find the right house for the right buyer.
Still, there are some very lovely homes in this area, including 1115 Sarasota Circle. While this beauty blends with the rest of the Tudors and cottages in the area, you’ll be surprised to hear it was actually built just 13 years ago, a labor of love by a retired builder, Daryl Davis. It’s marketed by Allie Beth Allman agent Alex Roostaei for $549,000.
“This home was built for [Daryl] and his wife back in 2001. He’s one of those guys who if he’s going to do something, he does it correctly,” Roostaei said. “He built this house not only to be beautiful and functional, but also to be just as sound behind the walls and in the construction.”
Sounds like this beautiful stone-and-brick-clad home will stand the test of time just like the rest of the 1920s-era Tudors you’ll find in Hollywood Heights and in Lakewood Heights. This particular home has three bedrooms, three full baths and two half baths, a huge backyard and a two-car garage with an air-conditioned studio/office space upstairs.
Inside you’ll find elegant millwork and trim, with glossy stained hardwood mouldings throughout. The gorgeous fireplace in the living room is modeled after Rookwood fireplaces that are common in the area. The dining room is spacious, perfect for entertaining, and has a lovely chandelier overhead.
In the kitchen you’ll fall for the beautiful red cabinets and gorgeous pendant and wall-mount light fixtures that add a soft vintage flair. Of course, you’ll find high-end stainless appliances and a built-in, made-to-match refrigerator. A wine nook and a beautiful island complete the space, which benefits from tons of natural light from the windows. There’s a beautiful breakfast nook next to the kitchen with huge windows and a lovely, understated fireplace.
Upstairs, the master suite is just absolutely adorable. The same touches you love in a 1920s Tudor can be found in this home, including the adorable commode with a vessel sink modeled to look like an old wash pan. The woodwork, honeycomb tile, and the cast-iron claw-foot tub make it a trip back in time. Nostalgic and more romantic than a New England bed and breakfast!
Just off the breakfast room is the screened porch, which opens to the huge, grassy backyard. In all, this home is perfect for lovers of vintage details with tons of modern amenities that make this incredible property a perfect Valentine for anyone!
