Great House, Great Price in Silver Lake

I saw this house 3 years ago when it came on the market. You could see with some work it could be a great house and Ivanhoe Elementary School is right down the street. It sold quickly for $700,000 in June 2008. The new owners did a great job renovating the house  and now it is back on the market for $799,000.

2860 Herkimer Street, Los Angeles, 90039

3 bedrooms/2 baths/ 1725 sq. ft.

offered at $799,000

This open and airy 1951 mid-century home flows well with a living room, family room, dining area and a large private flat backyard for entertaining or play. There are beautiful hardwood floors throughout.

The sellers updated the house with new doubled-paned energy-efficient windows, central air and heat, updated electrical and plumbing, recessed lighting, new landscaping, and indoor/outdoor speaker system.

The eat-in kitchen has kept it’s 1951 charm with the original Formica and stove. The laundry room is right off the kitchen.

There are three bedrooms with built in closets and cabinets for plenty of storage.

With two tastefully remodeled bathrooms the seller made some great choices. I am sure this home will not be on the market long so if you would like to see it please call Diane at 323.401.3987 or email
