Ambrose & Nectar

Tuesday’s caravan was rife with multimillion-dollar homes in the Oaks, but a standout for me was the recently re-listed 4524 Ambrose, a treasure hidden just seconds from the action on Hillhurst. Priced well at $875K it is a prime example of the creative possibilities that lie in a simple 3,750 SF lot.  Not only is the home impeccably maintained, but its Georgian roots have been thoughtfully preserved as well. 

It is a traditional home that is anything but traditional! If nothing else, check it out for the unusual yet decadent master suite carved out of what I assume was originally the attic.

The home features a wonderful saline pool and spa perfect for entertaining.  There is a dethatched studio overlooking the pool.  It might be difficult to use as a home office with that gleaming water tempting you all day long. The kitchen is a gourmet’s dream, combining restored period appliances with modern culinary amenities.

Walk into LF village for dinner, drinks or coffee, as the home is steps from Hillhurst. You will be tempted to walk to The Coffee Bean in your bathrobe every morning… Please don’t!

With 4543 Avocado (see below) immediately going into escrow (listed at $849K), I would jump on this property promptly as it will likely sell very quickly!  On that note… Do you want to see it?  Let me know!

    I dig your dig on these digs! Your descriptive language, realism, and humor really bring this gem alive. Makes me want to hang out all day by the pool with a coffee in hand, smiling at having scored a little peace of heaven right in the middle of town. Any way you can negotiate a discount for a regular blog reader? Let me know.


  2. There's one problem with this house - if it's the house I think it is: it's right next to the Albertson's parking lot. That's a major problem!
