This property is one of 3 parcels for sale (all adjacent). Looking for a location to create your own private estate with amazing views – all within an easy commute to downtown LA & the studios? Look no further!All flat & buildable with almost 2 acres (if all three lots are purchased), private access roads & mature trees.The main house was originally built in 1892 and was the winter home for the Bissell family. There was a major remodel in 1952. The current owners purchased the home in 1976 and later purchased the adjacent two vacant lots to preserve the views & privacy.Ready for a complete make-over. This property would be ideal for a buyer who needs a large home and the ability to add more structures such as a large garage for a car collection, an art studio, maids quarters or a guest house. All lots can be sold together or separately. The attached 5th bedroom/bath was used as maid’s quarters – but would be ideal for a home office, nanny quarters, gym, studio or in-law’s suite.Buyer/s to investigate to their own satisfaction all matters regarding permits, building requirements, utilities etc. Listing agent has not and does not intend to investigate these matters.
