A Secluded Oasis in the Heart of Highland Park

309 1/2 Newland Street, Highland Park

Welcome to a one-of-a-kind stunning oasis in the heart of bustling Highland Park. Private, gated, lush and peaceful, this two-bedroom home, hidden from the street, with a detached bonus home office (currently being used as a recording studio) and magical yard will take your breath away. Renovated in 2019 with new light fixtures, tiled backsplash and floating shelves in the kitchen - all perfect modern compliments to this peaceful abode. With three sets of French doors, all rooms open to the yard for fluid indoor/outdoor living, the two light-filled bedrooms placed on opposite sides of the living room, both open to the yard as well. And it's not just any epic yard, it's an experience you must see to understand: a multitude of fruit trees, raised veggie beds, terra cotta patios, outdoor clawfoot tub surrounded by bougainvillea, blackberries and a guava tree, an outdoor shower with wood enclosure, drought-tolerant ground covering spread across a raised berm, beckoning you to sit back, watch an outdoor movie, or just chill and take in the surroundings. Ductless AC and heat in both the home and detached home office, stackable washer/dryer included. One block to York and Figueroa - all your favorite HLP hot spots are minutes away and waiting to be discovered.
