Wonderful Hollywood/Grant Park Bungalow with original craftsmanship and charm.  The thoughtful landscaping and large covered front porch welcome you home and offer great curb appeal.

Step inside to a large living room with original oak hardwood floors,  unpainted wood work and a wood burning fireplace.  The living room is open to a large formal dining room.  Warmth and charm radiate throughout the house with plenty of natural light, wood floors throughout and original fir doors and trim.  Most of the light fixtures and door knobs are original as well, and in beautiful condition.

The kitchen has a vintage charm with clear fir cabinets and a breakfast nook with wood benches.  Off the kitchen is mudroom landing that leads to an outside entrance and also the basement.

The first floor includes two family bedrooms with large closets.  The bedroom off the kitchen also has French Doors to the back yard complete with wood screen doors.  The main floor bathroom has been tastefully updated. Under the stairs is a central vacuum.

The second floor has been opened up from the previous 2 bedrooms to a large master suite with original fir floors and trim.  Large windows and skylights make the space light and airy.  A good sized half bathroom leaves room to easily add a shower or enlarge to include a tub.

The basement is the footprint of the house with 7 and 1/2 foot high ceilings.  It has a completely new foundation with seismic upgrades.  The outside entrance along with new egress windows make this area full of possibility for additional living space.

The exterior includes a long driveway, a large storage shed, a fully fenced backyard with a spacious grassy area, a patio, an outdoor fireplace and flower beds with mature plantings.  Highlights include a Japanese Maple and a Brooks Plum Tree.

The location of this house can't be beat- just 2 blocks from all the shops and restaurants in Hollywood.  It is within walking distance to Grant Park, the library and grocery stores such as Whole Foods,  New Seasons and Fred Meyers.  It's also a commuter's dream with Bus lines nearby, the Hollywood MAX station, and NE 38th is a bike route.
