I’m not sure which has more pinch-its-cheeks charm: the 1926-built Hollywood Heights Tudor on Monte Vista Drive or the adorable bonus home in the backyard. The 1,897 square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath home is listed by Svetlana Grujic of Compass Realty. The completely renovated home was taken down to the studs and extensively renovated with timeless designer touches inside, but the exterior remains as classic as ever.
In front, you’ll find a porte-cochere situated next to the steeply gabled entry porch that frames the home in a welcoming and charming way. Twin chimney pots crown the prominent chimney in front and give the home an almost textbook Tudor appeal.
Walk inside to find oak hardwood floors lining the large, open floorplan that blends from living room to dining room to kitchen. The living area has simple and understated stained glass windows flanking the minimalist fireplace. The kitchen features glass-front painted cabinets, black marble countertops, white tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances include oven, gas cooktop, and dishwasher.
The master suite is huge with a beautifully-redone bathroom with white cabinetry, designer light fixtures, spacious walk-in closet, and a special shower design you’ve got to see. From the bedroom, step out onto an elevated deck or walk the stone pathway to the little bonus home “perfect for a kid’s resort or adult escape,” Grujic says.
Monte Vista Drive is located just blocks from the Sante Fe Trail, Lakewood Country Club, and in sought-after Lakewood Elementary. Svetlana Grujic of Compass has listed 411 Monte Vista Drive for $650,000.
