Kellam Avenue Carriage House
1417 Kellam Avenue – map
This Victorian-era carriage house originally served Everett E. Hall, co-subdivider of Angelino Heights, and his home around the corner on Douglas Street (HCM No. 216). Today, it’s property of 1417 Kellam Avenue. As such, it’s up for sale.
1417 Kellam, located in historic Angelino Heights and pictured above, is being offered for a cool $1.25 million. I’m not crazy about the way the main house (not part of the designated landmark) was renovated. I bet it was a very cool Craftsman at one time.
It’s tough to get shots of the carriage house, as it’s in the fenced-off back yard. Here’s a really good one, pre-stripped of paint, from the L.A.’s Dept of City Planning website (as usual*):
Today, the old carriage house is a guesthouse. Below is the view of it from Douglas. It’s pretty easy to imagine how you’d steer your horses up this path from this angle.
That’s it. Quickest post ever.
