Bewitching Artists' Retreat in Valley Village

$1,835,000 11714 La Maida St, Valley Village, CA 91607

Residing behind rustic wooden gates surrounded by lush drought resistant landscaping is an alluring Spanish hacienda emanating creative vibes like those found in artsy Santa Fe or San Miguel de Allende.  

Richly adorned with details such as thick beams, curved arches, built in alcoves, a stone fireplace, wood windows/French doors, handsome hardwood floors & exquisite antique sconces & light fixtures - this one of a kind, one level retreat is a paradise for artists &/or those craving something warm, inviting and utterly unique.  

Beyond the covered front veranda & just inside the thick wooden front door, the formal living room boasts a beamed ceiling & stone mantled fireplace with an adjacent separate seating area. At the center of the home is an open stainless steel & stone counter kitchen with center island that faces the dining room & family/media area that has a ladder for climbing up to a fun loft area.  Two sets of French doors off of both the kitchen and family room open onto a quaint private stone patio with three tiered fountain.  Another set of French doors beyond the dining room open up to the ultimate entertainers's private backyard with outdoor BBQ kitchen, plunge pool, artificial turf & spa areas for enchanted evenings under the Tivoli lights strung across an impressive extra high vine covered trellis.  

Back inside, two nice sized bedrooms share a dual sink bathroom while the primary en suite with walk in closet also overlooks the backyard via French doors.  Modern updates such as two zones of heat & air, recessed lighting, built in speakers & EV car charger complement the 1930's olde world charm. In addition, an oversized California basement offers abundant storage.

Just a few blocks from the award winning Colfax Charter Elementary & minutes from the 170, 101 & most major studios, this captivating casa in lovely Valley Village casts a spell on all who enter.  Open Sunday Oct 30 1-4, Tuesday Nov 1 11-2 and Friday Nov 4 11-2.
