Canopy Hideaway

Hidden within the mature tree canopy of the coveted Adams Hill neighborhood, sits this circa 1962 gem, that is a true appeal to the senses. This 2BED/1BATH home offers a tranquil retreat from city life, with views of the San Gabriel mountains, surrounding hillsides and city lights. Descend the redwood stairs to discover a handsome exterior in a bark-like hue, complemented by an expansive, harmoniously colored, wraparound deck. The property exudes a treehouse ambiance, with fresh air, birdsong and squirrels foraging, fostering a deep connection to nature. Inside, the home welcomes you with a collection of beloved world treasures, creating an unmistakable sense of home. The space is unified by refinished concrete floors and grounding plaster walls. The living room is centered by the fireplace outfitted in Portola Roman Clay and boasts large windows allowing for a seamless visual of the outdoors. Further enhancing this connection, french doors in the dining room and the glass-paneled kitchen door offer garden views and immerse the interior in waves of greenery, a recurring theme of interconnectedness with spaces beyond the interior. The primary bedroom, bathed in a warm hue, welcomes the morning light through a northeast-facing window, while the second bedroom epitomizes peaceful slumber.

Both feature walk-in closets. A nod to the 60s, found in the original multi-colored bathroom tiles, transports you to a time that once was. Modern upgrades include, central heating and A/C, new roof (2020) and new appliances (2020). Conveniently located within walking distance to Adams Square Mini Park, Kafn coffeeshop, Little Ripper and the award-winning John Muir Elementary School.
