There is so much to love about this 1926 Tudor I barely know where to begin. Oh wait, yes I do — on the street. Talk about curb appeal making you do a double take. Palm trees? Are we California dreaming? Is this a secret celebrity hideaway?
Jump to take a closer look inside this Greenland Hills home!
We’ll never tell but we will say 5458 Vanderbilt is a cozy 1,996-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom cottage that is actually in Greenland Hills, is certainly ready for its close up and quite a steal at only $569,000. The main living area has been completely opened up and a spiral staircase leads to a re-done attic, awaiting your magic touch to turn it into a guest suite or a giant man cave. Talk about maximizing space — we love the bright, white, giant living area with light pouring through a wall of windows, great hardwoods, and a classic fireplace.
French doors at the end of the room open into the dining area with even more window light on two sides of the room. Plantation shutters cover almost every window in the house, allowing for just the right balance of light and privacy.
Make a turn and you’re in the kitchen, which has been updated with granite countertops and a large island that encompasses the gas cooktop and enough space for three kiddos to easily eat breakfast together. We mention kids because this house is not only just perfect for a young family, but it’s also located in the much sought-after Stonewall Jackson attendance area.
The serene master bedroom has a private entrance into the backyard sitting area, perfect for sipping your morning cuppa or, even better, your afternoon cocktail. Loads of light in here and it’s nicely sized at 12 x 15. The secondary, in this case children’s bedrooms, both open onto the deck through large French doors with a beautiful blue-Jack and-Jill bathroom connecting them.
Another thing that maintains the California vibe is the luscious backyard with multiple outdoor living areas. There’s that cocktail-sipping deck off the master that wraps around the entire back of the house. The attention to detail here is marvelous. That is definitely pale pink painted on those columns supporting the wisteria arbor. How can you not be completely in love with pink columns? Another place to kick back is in front of the fireplace on the huge stone patio. It’s definitely a backyard made for entertaining. There’s even workshop tucked away back here.
