311 In Los Feliz, Estate of the Day
It's a bit eclectic and not really an estate but I just love the livability of today's home which was written up in the LA Times Hot Property section. Owned by Doug "SA" Martinez of the band 311 this home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz was built in 1927. The Spanish Colonial home is full of archways and stucco and original wood details. The four-bedroom home has two tiled balconies, one that is off of the master suite. No decorator here, this home is a riot of different colors and styles, a comfortable hodge-podge of unmatched furniture, colorful art and books everywhere stuffed into armoire-like cases. The kitchen is the only room that looks bland. The brilliant blue-tiled bathroom is a bit much but I love it for its vibrancy. The outdoor space is nice too with a saltwater pool and a custom Tennessee oak-covered patio with views of the Griffith Observatory. It is listed at $2.195 million.
