“Fort Awesome” is a spacious hillside compound with detached guest unit in the desirable Mt. Washington Elementary school district. The recently refurbished home revels in stylish design, high-end finishes and a rustic woodsy setting amongst the treetops. Highlights include an open floor plan, dramatic stairway, split-level formal living and dining, soaring ceilings and significant custom craftwork in the many wood, tile and lighting elements. Outdoor access is seamless, offering multiple airy spaces to relax, dine and entertain while enjoying panoramic vistas.
The updated, professionally-designed kitchen features custom shelving, refinished cabinets, Jerusalem marble countertops and a full-height glass tile backsplash. Included in the stainless appliance suite are a 36″ Cosmo 5-burner range, an instant hot water dispenser and a Marvel wine ‘fridge. Storage is ample, right down to the stealthy liquor cabinet. Three well-proportioned bedrooms include the Master that features an attached bathroom with dual vanities and a freestanding clawfoot tub. All bedrooms have their own attached deck, and one features a custom hideaway bed — perfect for your office, and providing flexibility for other use as needed.
Above the oversize two-car garage find a generous guest unit, complete with a kitchen, bathroom and an updated electrical system. A large, finished bonus space is ideal for your studio or workshop, and there is an additional basement area for extra storage. The hillside lot features native cacti, drought resistant plants and automatic landscape lighting. Secluded above the city, Fort Awesome is nicely situated for everything you need, including nearby favorites along Figueroa in Highland Park and the gourmet market/cafe Monte 52. The Gold Line metro is within easy reach.
