Overview

About the property

Sandwiched Between the Highland Park Metro Rail station and Lively Figueroa St.

Charming 1900’s Arts and Crafts/Craftsman-style, 2-story house in the heart of suburban historic district #1, in small town Highland Park, CA. Wood siding and shingle roof exterior. Updated kitchen and bathrooms with Craftsman door and window treatments. 6 fully furnished bedrooms. 1 non functional fireplace, wood floors, 3 updated bathrooms and an updated kitchen. Fully gated property with parking for 5-7 cars, plus 2 large public parking lots are directly adjacent to the house. Property is located just a few blocks from the 110 freeway halfway between Downtown LA and Pasadena.

The house has an Electric Vehicle charging station if you happen to be driving an electric car, central AC/heat, AC units in 5 of the 6 bedrooms, washer/dryer, flat screens in all rooms hooked up to Roku, and/or chromecast. Access to log in for Hulu and Netflix (if you have accounts), HBOGO, etc. Propane grill in the back, and gated parking for up to 7 cars. The locks on all the bedroom/closet doors are old-fashioned, a skeleton key will be provided. Some closets may be locked and some dresser drawers used for storage. However, there will be drawer space and a place to hang clothes available in each room.

Highland Park is a historic, artsy Eastside neighborhood, rich with Mexicana cultural history, complete with murals, graffiti, taco trucks and fruit stands. The house is close to some great bars and restaurants (The Greyhound, La Cuevita, Antigua Bread, Folieros ) as well as the Highland Theater, which is an art deco theater. There's also several workout studios within walking distance and beautiful nature hiking spots.

Walking distance to several neighborhood Pubs, cafes, coffee houses, authentic Mexican restaurants and hipster restaurants. Also, the 90 year old Highland Theater one block away is adjacent to several other historic buildings. And just recently renovated and reopened, the Highland Park Bowl, featuring fresh made pizzas (made with flour imported from Italy) and an attached microbrewery!

Great Location for Public Transit! If you don't have a car during your stay, even better, because your a few feet from the train station. The Highland Park Metro Rail station (Gold Line) is half a block from the house. It's a 15 min train ride to downtown LA (Southbound) with stops in Chinatown, Union Station, and Little Tokyo and its a 15 min train ride to Pasadena (Northbound). You can also take the train to Hollywood and/or Long Beach. I recommend researching where the train goes so you can decide where you wanna go during your stay. Its a great way to get around in a city notorious for its traffic. If you're flying in, you can grab the "flyaway bus" from LAX to Union Station ($8 I believe) where you can take the Gold line right to the front door of the house.

Great Location if you have a car! The house is located in a great area of Los Angeles from a freeway standpoint. You'll mostly use the 110 since its right by the house, but you'll also have access to the 5 and the 134. Being situated close to so many freeways allows you to take alternate routes when traffic is bad. Its about a 20 min drive to Hollywood, 10 min to downtown, 10 min to Dodger stadium, and 10 min to the Rose Bowl.

We have onsite hosting during your stay; Sam, Zac, or Trevor and Laura will be staying in a separate one bedroom unit on the same property.

Please feel free to call me if you wanna discuss your stay and handle the negotiations/terms over the phone followed by a rental agreement. If you are renting for an event, you will be subject to an event fee.

Why The Owner chose Northeast Los Angeles

The experience of living LA without a car! Highland Park Metro Rail station is steps away, Uber is also a viable option if traffic isn't too bad. "Always check traffic in LA when you drive."

Follieros-Great Italian+Pizza(cash only). Good Girl Dinette-delicious Vietnamese fusion. Chez Antoine-Legit French cuisine & Crepes! Via-Mar and El Pescador-the best fish tacos and Mexican style seafood in HP. There’re also Several Food Trucks down towards Food4less on Figueroa and many other places not mentioned, Mexican bakery, Juice shops, etc. Bars in ½ mile: La Cuelvita, Greyhound Bar and Grill. Workout Studios in ½ mile: Kinship-hot yoga studio Pop-Physique Highland Park Crossfit and Zumba You’ll need to visit the websites to view workout schedules. For a Great Hiking Experience-Walk East down Avenue 57 towards the 110 fwy, cross over the fwy and you’ll immediately have access to Debs Park and hiking in Montecito heights, amazing views!! The Highland Park Farmer’s Market is every Tuesday right in front of the house from 3-8pm and of course there’s the Highland Theater, always showing the latest releases for $4 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Sunbeam Vintage Furniture, Art Galleries, Post office, Dollar tree, Liquor Store, Owls Drug store, CVS, lots of Salons and Barber Shops, Little Caesar’s Pizza, 24/7 Subway, El Pollo Loco, Wienerschnitzel, Baskin Robbins, Radio Shack

Huge place. Top notch!

  • 5 of 5

Don't judge this book by its cover! You wouldn't guess it from the exterior, but this place is thoroughly modern inside, HUGE, and comfortable. We had a large family group and we never felt like we were tumbling over each other. You'd probably call the neighborhood "up-and-coming," but it felt very safe; no concerns. And the place was real convenient to the 101 freeway, which made it easy to get around LA. No real play area outside for the kids, but some parks an easy walk away.

Well located near Fig House, Metro--and comfortably accommodated our crowd of 12

  • 4 of 5

For our purposes, this house was great--enough bedrooms to have privacy, enough bathrooms so that the 12 of us could all get ready for my niece's wedding at the Fig House. Josh, the onsite manager, was wonderfully responsive to our requests (kitchen was a little short on dishes and utensils, dining room needed some more chairs). The only downside for us was the lack of common area other than the dining room, as the parlor/living room has been converted to a bedroom. But if you'd prefer to stay in your room and watch TV, this is definitely your rental (huge flat screen in EVERY room).

Perfect Place and Price!

  • 5 of 5

I really love this place! My brother got married in Pasadena, CA. Instead of everyone paying $300 bucks a night for nearby hotels, I booked this house. We had a pretty large group, 10 adults and 2 kids. And it fit everyone perfectly!

The place is spacious, well-appointed, and outfitted w/everything you need. We were able to make meals at the house, enjoy time together relaxing, and have plenty of places to park the various rental cars.

It is also well located, with transit right next door. The nearby commercial district also has restaurants, a Smart and Final grocery store, and other things you would need and/or want to visit. Be sure the get breakfast burritos from La Estrella and take in the beautiful murals!

I highly recommend this place!
