Buyer wins bidding war for a character-filled home in Highland Park

When Katharine opened the door to a character-filled home with a detached studio in Highland Park, she immediately knew.

We met at an open house for this stylish condo in Studio City. The minute she entered, there was a kindred connection, and we chatted about her home search and goals. It turns out she knows Quincy and John, hails from Canada, and wanted a space that has rental-to-Airbnb potential.

The home is shaded by a lush, mature tree on a 6,743-square-foot lot located at 1041 Milwaukee Ave, situated North of everything happening on York Blvd, near shops, restaurants, and nightlife on Figueroa St, and the Metro Gold Line.

Measuring 1,038 square feet, the character-filled interior holds two bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a center hall separating the public spaces. And you can boast for days about its character features; high coved ceilings, arches, hardwood and ceramic tile floors, double-hung windows, and a statement fireplace.

When you step outside, you’re welcomed by a landscaped and usable terraced backyard ordained for morning lattes and midsummer get-togethers. A finished garage is used as a guest bedroom and a studio on the upper terrace.

Combining the character of the main house plus the rental-to-Airbnb potential of the studio, Katharine knew she had found her home.

There were multiple offers but no tears — she won the bidding war.
