Easy to show using COVID-19 Guidelines. Located in Olde Torrance, this vintage 1941 home has original hardwood floors, cabinetry, ceramic tile, and sunny, wood-framed windows. The old door chimes still work! The electrical system was completely upgraded in 2015, it is freshly painted inside and out, and the landscaping is ready for ideas. Its small, secluded backyard would perfectly suit a family patio; the fenced front yard with young fruit trees is adjacent to an expansive, green city lawn so it seems bigger than it is. The front porch, living, and dining rooms open to a clear view of Torrance High School’s cinematic main building, built in 1917 and listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. This home was built in a simpler time and has retained its quiet charm with coved ceilings, an ample hallway, 3 egalitarian bedrooms and a rather large bathroom. The kitchen has a utility room for laundry; it opens to a side yard with raised garden beds that leads to a 2-car garage with a storage loft. The garage previously served as a recording studio and could easily be reconverted. You are within walking distance of downtown Torrance: craftsman homes and tree-lined streets, an eclectic mix of local breweries, artisan shops, and restaurants. A short walk the opposite way brings you to the Farmers’ Market and Wilson Park. Beaches, libraries, and churches are minutes away, as is Harbor UCLA Medical Center and freeway access. Your new home welcomes you.
