On a mission to “rejuvenate neighborhoods and increase the standard of living by improving the overall quality of housing for the residents,” Hello Homes introduces a striking modern farmhouse with a studio in Leimert Park.
Painted black, 3830 Grayburn Avenue sits on a wide tree-lined street with a new lawn and simple landscaping. Inside, the single-story residence reveals an open floor plan with strategically placed windows letting in natural light while retaining a sense of privacy.
The living room features a large new picture window and a fireplace that almost disappears against the shiplap paneling. The kitchen, fitted with custom wood cabinetry mimicking the vertical style of the shiplap, a Bertazzoni range, a built-in Liebherr fridge, and new quartzite countertops, looks onto the dining area, making this space perfect for hosting large dinner parties.
Two guest bedrooms sit at the front of the house on either end of a hallway, sharing a full bathroom. The primary bedroom is tucked away to the rear of the dwelling. It features a pitched ceiling, an ensuite bathroom with a large soaking tub, and an enviable walk-in closet.
The yard has access through French doors from the primary bedroom or the dining/kitchen area. With room for a pool and multiple paved areas for outdoor dining, there’s also a permitted detached guest unit with its own address, a kitchenette, and a full bathroom.
While Leimert Park is filled with architectural gems, it’s delightful to see a once-distressed residence emerge as another treasure. Last sold in July 2020 for $785,000, the home is now listed for $1.398 million.
