Rare corner lot offers 6,000+ square feet plus R-2 zoning, allowing the ability to build up to 5 units (City of Los Angeles Building Department advised 1 duplex + 1 attached ADU + 2 detached ADUs = 5 units, Ordinance #186481)! The existing property in a residential neighborhood seems like a secret garden tucked away from the rest of the world, yet it is centrally located near lots of restaurants, shops, the 110 and 405 freeways, Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, Del Amo Fashion Center, parks, and the beach. Approaching this intersection, you will notice the compound-like feel and lush landscaping providing this home with remarkable privacy. Step through the front gate where you will be welcomed by a magnificent blooming magnolia tree and charming elevated porch entry. The inviting living room is open to the dining room which conveniently connects to the kitchen including a cozy breakfast nook. Continue outside to the captivating backyard featuring a patio for dining al fresco, canopies of foliage for relaxing in the filtered sunshine, as well as bountiful orange and avocado trees. Back inside, the center hall with storage space and linen cabinets connects the living space to the full bathroom with neutral tile. Both secondary bedrooms here offer multiple windows and their own closets. Your primary suite is highlighted by a ceiling fan, dressing area, door out to the backyard, plus a dedicated 3/4 bathroom. The detached garage is where the laundry connections are situated, making this an easier ADU conversion, with driveway access on Harvard Blvd. Will you enjoy this peaceful cottage in the city as it is or are you the visionary to transform this property into its full glory?
