Set high on a corner lot and surrounded by mature palms, fruit trees, and gardens, this Highland Park cottage, which was initially built in 1912, provides glimpses of yesterday, along with today’s modern conveniences. Just some of the features that the home has retained include beautiful hardwood floors, box beamed ceilings, numerous built-ins, and a one-of-a-kind river rock fireplace in the living room.

With three bedrooms and three baths, this 1,753 square-foot residence has plenty of space for a growing family or retreating to a private home office. You’ll also find a breakfast area and new stainless steel appliances in the recently renovated kitchen. The bathrooms in the home have also been updated.

Plenty of natural light pours in through the large windows throughout. Outdoors on the roughly 12,000 square foot lot there is a detached two-car garage, and magnificent views from the large covered porch.

This unique property, which is located at 405 N. Avenue 53 in Highland Park – and is a contributing structure in the area’s Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) – is currently offered for sale at $1.15M. Private tours can be set up for interested purchasers.
