Breathtaking Mediterranean 4BR/3BA home perched high above the city atop fabulous Franklin Hills with jaw-dropping views in every direction. This classic, sophisticated, and peaceful two-story home featuring original period details and a plethora of modern amenities epitomizes the best of both worlds. Charming brick stairs wind up through the terraced front yard overflowing with succulents and palms. Upon entering this sun-drenched masterpiece, you'll discover the original magnesite floors in the entryway and up the sweeping central staircase, with gleaming hardwood throughout the rest of the spacious home. Step down into the formal living room with picture frame hardwood floors, high ceilings, crown molding, and stunning oversized bay window. French doors lead out to the back garden area, and a traditional fireplace is at the heart of this lovely room. To the right you'll find two bedrooms, one currently used as a library/study with its own decorative marble fireplace and French doors to the back garden. The rooms flank a full guest bathroom, which has been updated with all the nostalgic feeling of the 1940s era. Dining room and charming galley kitchen, complete with Viking range, open up onto the generous front deck, perfect for dinner al fresco or a cozy cup of coffee in the morning. Designated laundry room and pantry off the kitchen round out the first level. Upstairs you'll find 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. To the right are two spacious bedrooms with excellent closet space and a 'Jack and Jill' adjoining bathroom. To the left you'll see the romantic primary suite flooded by natural light, with a cedar-lined closet and French doors leading out to a deck with incredible views of the city. The large en suite bathroom has been carefully updated with classic details, and the marble tile, claw foot tub, and separate shower complete the room, and this Zen space. Now to the many outdoor spaces! The second level deck can be accessed via the backyard or the primary suite - plenty of room for outdoor dining, a fire pit, and sun-bathing. There's even an additional deck on the rooftop with panoramic views of the city, including the Griffith Observatory, Palos Verdes, Downtown LA, and the San Gabriel Mountains. On the ground level you'll find a Saltillo tile patio, raised garden beds, citrus and fig trees, camellias, and a little rose garden. Central HVAC, newer roof (2012), 200-amp electrical panel, EV charger, and retrofitted foundation are just a few of the many upgrades completed here over the past 20 years of ownership. Enormous three-car garage with tons of dedicated storage space. A stone's throw from all the city has to offer, but with all the peace and solitude you've been searching for. Mere minutes to Gelson's, Trader Joe's, Barbrix, Speranza, Blair's, Edendale Grill, beautiful Griffith Park, and the highly-rated Franklin Ave Elementary School. A rare opportunity to own such a special view property in this amazing Los Feliz neighborhood.
