This dreamy Spanish bungalow in Highland Park has a surprisingly well-integrated space beyond its original structure.
Curbside, the residence sits on a 4,200-square-foot lot blocks away from the popular pedestrian strip on York, where locals frequent spots like Cafe de Leche, Ramen of York, Town Pizza, and Donut Friend.
Built in 1929, the interior perfectly balances vintage character and modern updates. The home opens to a living room featuring a vaulted open-beamed ceiling and a decorative fireplace. You connect to the dining area in one direction, leading to a galley-style kitchen lined with butcher block countertops and custom cabinetry. And in the other direction, a hallway leads to the private spaces.
At some point in this home’s history, an owner expanded the living space through an arched hallway leading to an unexpected lounge area with a skylight and French doors opening to a patio space with a generous-sized primary suite just beyond.
Measuring 1,485 square feet, 4757 Mendota Ave also offers numerous smart-home features by Nest and a negotiable electric car charger. Last sold in 2018 for $1.052 million, the home is now listed with an asking price of $1.175 million.
