SOLD: 1310 N. Avenue 56 in Highland Park

Congrats to my buyers on their super cool remodeled Highland Park Spanish home!

I remember when this home hit the market in distress last year, what a wonderful transformation the sellers have made with their remodel and what a score for my buyers. In addition to 3 bedrooms and 2 baths in the main house (not to mention closets as big as a small bedroom), there is a second detached structure with a separate garage and not 1 but 2 sparkling new studio spaces complete with private entrances, kitchenettes, and bathrooms. They could host friends and family in one and have a nanny live in the other, air bnb one or both, use one as a home office and one as a screening room or playroom, the possibilities are endless. All within walking distance to the shops and restaurants on York, this is Highland Park living at it’s finest.
