Imagine relaxing in front of a crackling fire in a well-appointed cottage in Eagle Rock, gazing out the window at the beautiful greenery and private stone patio. You could make this scene a reality in this 1910 Craftsman, which offers two bedrooms and one full bath in its nearly 1,200 square feet of living space.
Artist and architect Howard Arden Edwards initially designed and built the cottage for his family in 1910. And, while the home features many of its original amenities, it has also blended nicely with some of today’s modern conveniences.
Here you will find beautifully stenciled paintings on the dark wood beamed ceilings, as well as pristine hardwood flooring and wood-framed windows. Other key highlights include two stone fireplaces and built-in seating and bookshelves.
The home’s exterior offers a private and serene setting, where you can enjoy morning coffee overlooking the lush landscaping, and shaded by the numerous nice, mature trees.
As a Historical Cultural Monument (number 383), a substantial amount of property tax expense could be saved by the owner of the home, due to it’s Mills Act status.
Located at 1207 Kipling Avenue in Eagle Rock – just a tad west of the Eagle Rock Rec Center – this unique home is currently listed for $699K. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
