3 Beds 1 Bath 1,244 Sq.Ft.
First offering in nearly 50 years! Like so many homes completed during California’s land boom of the early 1920s, this three bedroom, one bathroom home capitalized on the growing revivalist movement in Southern California. In the waning years of the Victorian and Arts and Crafts era, architects and builders found a new interest in the unpretentiousness and simplicity of sensible, familiar architecture that would appeal to a broad spectrum of the region’s growing consumer economy.
With its square, doric columns, pronounced pediment, and wooden shiplap exterior, this colonial revival bungalow met the needs of all involved, and it reflects the social and economic optimism during the years immediately following WWI. The home maintains its original character and complements the historic fabric of Monrovia’s early neighborhoods.
The home has new oak hardwood floors in the entry, living room, and dining room, and the original fir floors in the bedrooms have been recently sanded and re-stained. The third bedroom is a tandem bedroom off the rear bedroom and also has its own private, separate entrance. The laundry room has washer and dryer hookups, though, with a bit of creativity, that space could possibly be reconfigured to accommodate a new bathroom by moving the laundry to the extra space in the kitchen. The living room and primary bedroom have west-facing French doors that provide additional airflow on days you do not wish to use the new air conditioning, and the large backyard is perfect for entertaining or even your own landscaping ideas.
