Los Village Triplex with Restored 1890s Farmhouse

All three units of this exquisite triplex will be delivered vacant. A rare and wonderful income property opportunity in the very heart of Los Feliz Village. The rear portion of the property is a historic and restored farmhouse built in 1890, making it one of the very first – if not the first – homes in Los Feliz Village. It’s absolutely an owner-user’s dream; a separate entrance, gated compound with a standalone bungalow, bonus studio, and a large private yard.

From the street, there are two light-filled Spanish-style apartments that each have one bedroom, one bath, laundry, offices, and outdoor space.

4548 Melbourne Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90027
Asking Price: $1,350,000
Type: Triplex
Bedrooms: 4
Baths: 3
Living Area: 2,220 sqft
Lot Size: 6,724 sqft

The two units are near-identical but the first feels a bit larger due to its true open layout but both are brightly light and full of 1920s charm.

The first unit also enjoys a slightly larger office space that could double as a guest bedroom or nursery.

The kitchen has been stylishly updated but maintains a period-appropriate vibe with a vintage stove.

The bedrooms in both units enjoy great backyard views. They are calm and peaceful spots to lay your head.

The vintage-inspired baths have lovely clawfoot tubs.

Both units have flooring of whitewashed wood and both enjoy access to a lovely front patio and yard.

The bedroom in the second unit is slightly larger.

And the unit’s bathroom also has a salvaged clawfoot tub.

The Spanish-style front units share access to a wonderfully private backyard. It’s an enclosed and excellent place to entertain and dine under the stars.

The entire triplex property has been expertly landscaped with a magical mixture of plants, succulents, crawling vines, and trees.

The back house feels like anything but a standard back house. With a separate entrance and an enclosed and private backyard, it is a little slice of paradise in this prime Los Angeles neighborhood.

The 1890s cabin has been gorgeously re-rendered in the rustic farmhouse style. The living room has a unique fireplace and what just might be original reclaimed hardwood floors.

The designer-owned historic home features an unusual and exciting layout. While the original 1890s structure offers plenty of living and sleeping space, the detached studio solves a unique problem and provides more flexible living space. The main house has both living and dining rooms.

A wonderful loft bedroom upstairs awaits.

The chic kitchen has just the right amount of vintage charm and built-ins and luxe modern stainless steel appliances. The kitchen also has easy outdoor access.

The home takes Southern California/outdoor living quite literally. The original structure and the new “sleeping studio” are connected by a pergola-covered wood deck. While this setup may seem perhaps impractical it is in fact not altogether rare or unique in Los Angeles where, let’s face it, the sun shines most of the time. Think a Spanish courtyard or an architectural standout by Frank Lloyd Wright. Consider it an outdoor hallway.

The detached modern studio can be accessed directly from the uniting deck space. Once the crawling vines reach maturity they should provide ample shelter from the elements.

The modern studio that is ideal for extra living quarters, master bedroom, workspace, or a media room.

It also includes a second cozy bedroom great for overnight visitors.

The back house has a total of two bathrooms. The property’s intuitive design and flawless style has been celebrated in Apartment Therapy and other publications. Live in one, rent the other two. While also exceptionally close to all of Los Feliz Village’s shops and restaurants, 4548 Melbourne Avenue presents an extraordinary opportunity in this incredible neighborhood while collecting a fair share of rental income. Don’t miss it.
