Welcome to this 1953 built mid-century traditional Mellenthin home in Hidden Woods, Sherman Oaks; walking distance from charter schools, shopping, and entertainment. Tile and hardwood floors (under carpet too), usher you through the single-story rambler with tons of floor-to-ceiling built-in storage. Trademark back-to-back fireplaces in the living room and den enable different entertainment settings. Glass sliders invite access to the classy saltwater pool (updated & upgraded in June 2022) and utility room door leads directly back in to laundry and shower. Neutral granite and “ice block” countertop windows add light and design to the functional pass-through, eat-in kitchen adjoined to the formal dining area. The step-down den with scalloped wood trim, commanding brick fireplace, compartment filled wall unit desk, all curate comfort and conversation. One retro and one updated bathroom with tile shower balance old-world charm and postmodernism. ADT security system, side yard security gates, Ring doorbell, and Nest thermostat offer peace of mind and convenience. Enhanced with inter-locking pavers, trimmed with drought-tolerant landscaping, and fruit trees, this is an awesome foundation to create your oasis tucked away in a central mid-city location. Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) exist in neighboring homes, check with authorities to explore the possibilities!
