Property Description

This 1923 Spanish bungalow set above Colorado Blvd has inspired creativity in its owners for nearly a century. Lined with red oak floors and filled with natural light, the living room houses an impressive mantel flanked by original character built-ins. The formal dining room features glass French doors that open out to a shaded patio with a built-in bbq and a flat, grassy yard. Among the home’s many upgrades is the freshly renovated kitchen with quartz counters and a brand new suite of Bertazzoni appliances. Just off the kitchen sits a laundry room with new LG washer and dryer and a convenient, updated half bath. The gleaming full bath stays true to a classic Spanish color palette while using contemporary materials and romantic Deco accents. Only in recent years has the home’s inspiring nature extended to two detached studios (187 sf and 99 sf, respectively), each acoustically tuned and outfitted with Ethernet connectivity and their own mini split heating/cooling systems. The property is also a study in energy efficiency, with a Tesla charger, owned Panasonic solar panels, and a Tesla Powerwall which harnesses surplus energy which the home can use during power outages. The entire grounds have also been recently re-landscaped with energy-conserving sprinkler and irrigation systems. 5120 Shearin Ave is right nearby Four Cafe, Milk Farm, Chateau Lemongrass, The Oinkster, The Capri Club, Unincorporated Coffee Roasters, Max City BBQ, Colombo’s, Eagle Rock Italian Bakery, Occidental College, and all the excellent schools that precede it.
