Spanish-Deco stunner asking $2.8M in Miracle Mile

By Pauline O’Connor

A contributor to the Miracle Mile North historic district, this tile-roofed beauty at 139 South Alta Vista Boulevard was built in 1931, and has aged quite gracefully. Measuring 3,193 square feet, the two-story Spanish Colonial Revival makes a strong first impression, with a wrought-iron gate and covered arcade leading to its coffered-wood front door. On the other side awaits a grand foyer with magnesite tiles, a sweeping staircase with fanciful wrought iron railings, and an original fresco ceiling.

Moorish-inspired carved archways lead to a step-down living room with decorative tiled fireplace and wrought iron sconces, or to the formal dining room with dramatic oval-tray ceiling, or to the updated kitchen, which has been outfitted with stainless Viking appliances.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, with coved ceilings, wood-framed casement windows, and cedar closets. The house has three bathrooms, one with original tile, the others remodeled with “heritage-standard” period-style Golem tile.

The 7,400-square-foot property also features a detached garage with original, permitted second story sunroom, and a newly resurfaced swimming pool.
