Welcome to The Blanco Bungalow!

Romantic and serene, this gracefully restored Spanish Bungalow is a Wrigley District oasis, blending modern high-desert style with laid-back bohemian vibes. Originally constructed in the early 1920s, the home’s custom renovation has been the owner/Designer’s labor of love, handcrafting a tranquil retreat in the city for those who love calming vibes, premium upgrades, and a harmony of past and present architecture.

5,739 square feet of lush yard feature a textured stucco fence, redwood gate, welcoming patterned tile-work under the portico, and gorgeous authentic terracotta roof. Inside, airy living soothes with 1,263 sq ft decked by cloudlike walls, original redwood floors, traditional hacienda bookshelves, coved ceilings, arched transitions, modern fixtures, and a mesmerizing centerpiece window of botanical views. While the pinterest-worthy kitchen is soothing with the organic Mexican aesthetics of cement floors, open Alder Plank shelving, and Kohler Cast Iron sink, the Samsung Bespoke WIFI appliances and Forte range hood add luxurious convenience. Here, fill the home with aromas of favorite recipes, then enjoy in the peace of your sunny breakfast nook. Wake within two bedrooms of Redwood floors, walk-in closets, and wrought iron fittings, then refresh in the full bathroom where star-dotted tile contrast a white floating vanity, mood brightening architecture, and high-end hardware.

Outside, a stunning private modern-desert sanctuary marries maintenance-free turf with lush arid-loving greens. Pour wines for friends under the cafe lights, host alfresco meals from your imported outdoor pizza over and cozy up near the firepit with neighbors in your custom built-in sectional. Adventure-ready vehicles can fit comfortably down the long tandem driveway. The detached two car garage has polished cement, cool hues, endless storage, and the potential for a fully converted ADU keeps ideas flowing. The space is perfectly outfitted for mindful morning moments, artfulness, and afternoon chill.

While touring, ask about newly installed ductless HVAC system, newly upgraded plumbing & electrical, and brand new SmartHome appliances. A quintessential California getaway, you’ll enjoy the neighborhood’s sense of artful community just a stroll to schools, eateries, shops, LB Beer Lab and Wrigley Coffee. LA River Bike Path leads to favorite beaches, yoga in the park, horseback riding, hiking, flea markets and more. Conveniently located near the 710 and 405 freeways that easily lead to either Orange County or Los Angeles!
