If house flippers and investors are off on holiday break, it may provide other buyers a chance to look into this classic, Spanish-Colonial Revival-style home that went up for sale in East Los Angeles just before Christmas, according to Redfin. The 82-year-old, bank-owned home on Simmons Avenue does look up beat up and is need of repairs. But the three-bedroom home has managed to retain much of its historic charm and features, including red-tiled roof, coved and beamed ceilings, an imposing living room fireplace, built-ins and foam-green bathroom tile. The property is one of many other Spanish-Colonial style homes that were built in a 1920s era development called Montebello Park, which was designed by the master planner responsible for the layout of much of Beverly Hills and Carthay Circle.
How much for this piece of Montebello Park? The asking price is $219,000. Better take a look before the flippers and contractors recover from their New Year’s hangover.
