Welcome to the Taft House, designated as a historical cultural monument. The property is a fixer with lots of potential. This late 19th century Dutch Colonial house features wood siding and trim, gambrel roof, double hung windows, dormers and wraparound porch with wooden, spindled supports. The influential Taft family acquired this house, and lived in it from early 1900's until 1942. In 1942, it was moved from its original location in Hollywood to Granada Hills to make way for the Hollywood Freeway. The home sits on a large 27,000 square foot lot and is considerably set back from the street. Although the property needs work, with some good imagination and landscaping, it can become a dream compound. The main house is just over 3000 sqft with 4 bedrooms plus a an office and 2 bathrooms. It has a grand living room with a beautiful fireplace which is said to have belonged to the notable 19th century actress. Kitchen opens to a good size formal dining room. Original hardwood floors adds charm to this home. There is a separate guest house with 1 bed,1 bath and kitchenet. Outside offers a huge yard with many fruit trees, pebble textured pool, two car detached garage and plenty of space to create your dream gardens.
