825 Monterey Boulevard
It’s a 1,760 square foot Westwood Park Tudor with some rather nice original woodwork at 825 Monterey Boulevard. And while we wouldn’t oppose an updating of the vintage baths, and possibly a bit of the kitchen, please don’t update the original stove.

Or better yet, do. But give us a call first. We’ll come pick it up. No charge.

    Beautiful house that appears in good condition. Like the bathrooms exactly as they are– one has the same subway tile thing everyone is using now for “updates”, anyway, and the pink is fun too. Would not want to be on such a busy street but otherwise love it.

    I agree, lovely. I wouldn’t change the bathrooms either – the only modern convenience I would want a dishwasher in the kitchen, but I wouldn’t touch that charm!
    The lot is oddly shaped. No pictures of the garden touted in the listing…

    Pick up some long wooden matches for that stove while you’re at it.

    Now THAT is a beauty. I generally don’t appreciate “vintage” style but I could see myself making an exception here.

    I have to say – I hate that window box — totally out of scale. Something that was assuredly gaudy at the time doesn’t become tasteful just because it’s 100 years old.
    But I do like the stove.

    This house is nice. I’m not always a big fan of vintage, but it works. Dare I say the word “charming”?
    That interestingly painted house across the street is hilarious. It looks like it has a purple phallus on it that says 818 (maybe they’re also from Burbank and proud of it?). Also, that’s not a hydrant out front — is it some weird pottery? Google obscured it.

    Hey SocketSite, if you need someone to shoot pictures on this side of town, please let me know.
    You know my number.
    Also, if you talk nice to me I’ll help pick up this stove in the event that it becomes available.
    Cheers.

    Like the house. Not the street.
    The stove is cool (not a wedgewood?) however, besides being crossly inefficient these old stoves can be dangerous.
    they have several pilots that never stay lit and unlike modern ovens, these pilots continue to emit gas when not lit and the pilot valves don’t always function properly.
    I’m just sayin, they’re not practical unless you are somewhat mechanical or you have them professionally inspected periodically.

    Looking at the map of this house’s location, I noticed there’s a nearby store called “The House of Bagpipes”. I can’t say I’d heard of it before, but I’ill definitely have to check it out sometime.

    They’re also not made for having anything vaguely flammable nearby, which is why this is not next to anything. What makes the commercial-style appliances so expensive (as opposed to actual commercial appliances) is that they are built so you can have them essentially flush against flammable things like cabinets.
    Does this have to have standing pilots (like commercial appliances)? I used a gas stove that I lit with a flint before.
