Architecture Wednesday: 1907 Hollywood Craftsman

Posted by admin on

Okay, so she’s 116-years-old, but this is Hollywood and girl has had some work done to her and she still looks fabulous, retaining a lot of the charm from the Good Old Days: wood floors, skylights, windows, and a shingle façade.

And yet she feels new and vibrant. Some of the original floors have been painted in stark white to create a kind of art gallery vibe; but those white floors give way to jewel-toned rooms and floors, and original coffered ceilings.

The living room is cozy, with an abundance of windows and a painted brick fireplace. The soaring ceilings and walls of the primary bedroom are painted cerulean, white a hallway painted canary yellow leads to a sweet, cottage-style room that includes another bedroom and Mediterranean-esque bathroom with intricate tile and a soaking tub.

Meanwhile, the kitchen gives me beach bungalow realness with butcherblock countertops, open shelving, and a breakfast nook; in the dining room a hip ridge skylight provides ample light to a formal dining room, as does a wall of windows and doors that open onto the garden.

There are two other structures on the property: one features a private deck and can be a studio, office or even a gym, while there is an ADU—Additional Dwelling Unit—at the rear of the property.

Oh, and being Hollywood, of course there’s a pool, a spa, and an outdoor fireplace. As I said before, she’s been around a while but she looks good!
