A true wooded oasis in the city, this lovely home has been recently reimagined by Grant + Grant Architecture Interiors using gentle hints of fine California Craftsman architecture. Soothing at every turn, fine materials like Pella windows & doors, walnut flooring and beautiful Ann Sack’s tile create interest and warmth throughout.

Enter through a private courtyard, complete with a calming fountain and beautiful plantings. The floorplan here on Kelton is sensible and thoughtful, with its living dining and kitchen areas flowing together for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining. The open living room has a center fireplace and leads to the spacious dining room. The cook’s kitchen is very pretty featuring a large center island and magnificently appointed with Italian Okite Quartz counters and Miele appliances opens to the magical back yard.

The bedrooms are all spacious and peaceful-feeling and each bath, artfully crafted. The master, also opening to the yard, has a sumptuous, spa-like bath and two terrific closets. Nearby the master, there are two very nice secondary family bedrooms sharing a hall bath. The fourth bedroom is off by itself and en-suite and could also be a great family room, guest room, media room or study and has its own backyard access.

The magnificently landscaped back yard, complete with another bubbling fountain, takes full advantage of this larger lot with its many spots perfect for rest and relaxation; there is a romantic outdoor fireplace which casts a soft glow on the outdoor dining area and there is both an ample hardscape and a soft grassy area for kids to play on. Lounge, dine and garden comfortably in this colorful setting.

Coveted Fairburn Elementary district. Close to UCLA and Westwood shopping and dining.
