One-of-a-kind chic adobe dwelling in West Adams

Here’s an opportunity to own L.A.’s Historic-Cultural Monument number 621, aka the Alice Lynch Residence in West Adams.

Designed by Harwood Hewitt, the architect responsible for the Westlake Masonic Temple and Villa Sophia in Los Feliz, the home stands colored in light dusty pink, centered around a spacious courtyard on 2414 4th Avenue. With construction reportedly overseen by master adobe contractor John Byers, the home is one of the city’s finest and last remaining adobe dwellings.

Tastefully updated for modern living, the four-bedroom home offers 2,500 square feet of living space spanning two levels. Character details include original hardwood floors, an entryway with tile floors, a living room with a beamed ceiling and a brick fireplace, a built-in dining nook, arched windows, and doorways, along with an estimated 15,000 hand-molded mud bricks said to be hand-molded by Mexican artisans.

Last sold in 2016 for $970,000, the home sits on a 9,383-square-foot lot within an HPOZ and features some drought-friendly landscaping. This time around, the house is listed for $1.599 million.
