Where in the world is Garvanza?
There was a time you wouldn’t have needed to ask. In the early 1900’s, Garvanza was a noted bohemian artists' colony and the heart of the Arts and Crafts movement in Los Angeles, together with Pas and South Pas. Today, it’s a beautiful enclave of period jewels in Highland Park — a designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zone that’s home to over fifty Historic-Cultural Monuments. And right now, one of its most lovingly cherished homes is for sale. Treasured by just three owners in over 100 years, this private, gated 1910 Craftsman set on a knoll fully retains the vision of its architects, Train & Williams (they designed not only a slew of noted Craftsman residences, but the 20th-century version of the Angels Flight funicular). Every inch of this four-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath gem has been meticulously and sensitively updated and restored, from original cedar siding, Arroyo river rock and a new roof with rolled edging and built-in gutters to plaster, windows, wainscoting, built-ins, pocket doors, Douglas fir and oak flooring, replated original hardware and 36 restored original screens. (Can any LA Craftsman claim that? Gamble House, maybe.) All HVAC and copper plumbing systems are new. Up a vine-trellised path through the verdant front yard, you step from a formal entry to a dream living room with a fireplace with original Craftsman tile surround, screen and log grate. The formal dining room opens to the patio, and there’s a spacious downstairs office/library. New stainless steel Viking appliances feel right at home in the sensitively updated kitchen, overlooking manicured greenery. Upstairs, the serene master retreat includes a walk-in closet and a sleeping porch (now a seating area) with wraparound hillside views. Three more upstairs bedrooms reveal remarkably generous closet space and plenty of extra storage. A full basement delivers more. Magically lit at night, the totally new landscape and hardscape includes a wide variety of fruit trees. The approximately 13,504 square foot lot, zoned R2, could accommodate a pool/guest house/studio expansion. If you’ve ever dreamed of curating a masterpiece, your chance has arrived.
