Mt. Washington, a NELA neighborhood known for its remote setting, “whose beauties and scenic advantages have been admired for years,” is where this midcentury fixer longs for some TLC.
Adjacent to Eagle Rock and Highland Park, the neighborhood’s countryside vibe attracted modernist architects such as Richard Neutra, Gregory Ain, and John Lautner, who built alongside the cabins and bungalows that line the hilly winding streets.
Sited on a large 12,326-square-foot lot located at 721 Lark Ct, the dwelling is surrounded by lush grounds and greenery.
Despite its rundown appearance, the main house, measuring 830 square feet, offers one bedroom and one bathroom with floor-to-ceiling windows and wood-beamed ceilings in the living room.
The garage has been converted to a studio with a separate bathroom (possibly built without permits.)
If you remove the carpet, add square footage, and landscape the yard, you can enjoy a peaceful modernist compound with breathtaking hillsides, and city and mountain views.
The home is listed by Ann Marie Uy, seeking $599,000.
