Figure 8 represented the buyer of this restored and upgraded Queen Anne home within Elysian Park’s historic Solano Canyon, just north of Downtown LA, and south of Dodger Stadium. From the kumquat tree out back to our clients’ favorite lucky candies sitting on the counter at the open house, 476 Solano seemed meant to be. Walking distance to Elysian Park, China Town, and Dodger Stadium, this artfully updated, 1903 Queen Anne Victorian home enjoys a scenic perch right in the historic district of Solano Canyon. Soaring coved ceilings and large bay windows are just a few of the details that make this house an unforgettable new home for our clients and their young baby. Sofia was able to secure the buyer one of the last First Republic Eagle Program Loans at 4.75% (a day before they cut them off!) and beat out an all cash offer.
The 1903 residence sits up on a knoll with views of Buena Vista Hill from the front porch and lush Radio Hill gardens continuing off the extensive backyard. Vintage pocket doors enable a flexible floor plan between the formal dining and living rooms. A large standing room attic, spacious basement exuding potential, and a rear workshop/office with separate private entrance further sweetens the deal. Updates include: New plumbing, new electrical, new insulation, new drywall, new paint, new sewer line from house to city connection, new HVAC, new energy efficient windows throughout while preserving the vintage windows in the front. Charming character features include high coved ceilings, bay windows, detailed exterior trim work.
