A Mid-Century Gem Exposed in Los Angeles

A Mid-Century Gem Exposed in Los Angeles

Located in Los Feliz, in the East Hollywood district of Los Angeles, this stylish 1953 house going under the name “The Chew House” was built by architect Eugene Kinn Choy and is now up for sale if you got a cool $1,850,000 to spend.

What fascinates me about this property is that there are so many original elements still intact, from the the tiles to the bathroom decor. The house features 4 large bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms (don’t ask me what’s up with that half bathroom) along with a salt water swimming pool and a large kitchen overlooking the pool. I am imagining that this house would be quite the bachelor pad for the man about town.

If you want to put in a offer on this mid-century gem of a house, head over to estate agent Jeffery Young’s dedicated website about the property.

    All it needs is an Avanti in the driveway and Brubeck on the Hi-Fi.

    In American real estate, a “half bathroom” is a bathroom with just a toilet and wash basin but no bathtub or shower. It’s typically used as a “powder room” on the first floor for visitors.
