Eagle Rock Casita perched on its own knoll on York Hill is a masterful blend of old and new. To begin, enough can not be said about the views. The approximately 260 degree panoramic views offer distant sight lines of Angeles National Forest, Verdugo Mountains, Mt. Washington and some of the Downtown LA skyline. Each window offers a completely different vista. The home's original character, its natural setting and the needs of a modern lifestyle were the driving factors in all improvement decisions. All windows were updated to wood-framed casement windows. The tile work in the new Quaker kitchen and bathroom were laid with precision by a veteran tile-person who cared deeply about their craft. Period built-ins, custom closets, updated wiring and electric panel, new HVAC, custom steel folding doors to the garage, and new decking were overseen by design and build firm Optimistic Habitation. The owners were not ones to skimp and $200,000 was spent just on the yard, landscaping and retaining wall built by Alpha Structural. Great pride was also taken in preserving the home's original features and character. The wood floors, lath and plaster walls, coved ceilings, arches, dutch kitchen door, and subway tile in the bathroom are all in remarkable shape for their age and carry the authentic and reassuring patina of materials and craftsmanship that were built to last. The unique setting of the property affords a private grassy yard and ample outdoor area to lounge and entertain. The driveway can hold three cars in tandem while the garage is being used as a gym/office/lounge with room to add a bathroom. A "must visit to appreciate" just how special both the home and its setting truly are.
