Built in 1931 north of Franklin Avenue, 2017 Kenmore Ave sits just behind a band of tall ficus enclosing the front, gated yard.
The façade’s architectural details include a rounded entry door with dark wood trim that opens to 3,439 square feet of interior space spanning two floors.
Features include original hardwood floors, an ornate double-sided fireplace opening to the living room and den, dentil crown moldings lining many high ceilings, and a spectacular chef’s kitchen with a center island and a wall of windows looking out to the tropical backyard with a pool.
One of the four bedrooms is located on the first level and can double as a guest room. The other bedrooms are on the second floor, each with en-suite bathrooms, iron balconies, and plenty of arched windows streaming natural light and views of the Griffith Park Observatory and the surrounding hillside. The master includes a sitting nook with arched windows overlooking the pool, walk-in closets with built-ins, and a spa-sized master bath with a soaking tub and double sinks.
In addition to the pool and spa, the 6,483-square-foot lot has a private drive leading to a two-car garage.
Last sold for $2.805 million in 2014, Stephen Parisi now lists the home for $3.4 million.
