2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 976 sq ft asking $899,000

SOLD! 34 offers, closed for $1,260,000

The sun seems to shine just a little bit brighter here on Stratford Road. The way it cascades through those big beautiful casement windows every morning, dancing from room to room. Moods seem a little brighter too; summer days regenerating in the ultra-satisfying central air conditioning, breezy sunset dinners glowing under the backyard pergola and winters cozied up next to the gas fireplace.

A perfectly situated open floor plan offers two bedrooms, two baths, and doors inviting you outside from almost every room. Renowned restaurants, unique shops, and winding trails all minutes from this leafy little street on the border of Highland Park and Eagle Rock. How is it you can be right in the middle of everything yet still so tucked away? Opportunity knocks but once, don’t let this magical Spanish oasis be the one that got away.
