Why we have a crush on this property

The listing for this gorgeous home for sale in central Los Angeles reads like poetry: “When a house has soul, you know it the minute you walk inside. Soul can’t be manufactured. You can’t quickly decorate your way into it. 1426 Coronado Terrace has the essential character — the soul — that must be infused over decades.”

It’s true, this circa 1924 house possesses a kind of rare charm not found in more modern abodes. But the main selling point for me is not its beautiful fireplaces or wooden built-ins. No, I have heart eyes for this house because of one brilliant feature: the outdoor clawfoot tub in the backyard.

This thing is it. Set on a stone patio surrounded by Moroccan-style tiles and a turquoise-painted pergola strewn with bright-pink bougainvillea, this sun-dappled tub looks like the dreamiest place to take an afternoon soak. And, after a bath, you can enjoy a light lunch at the cafe table in the garden, or sunbathe in one of the plush lounge chairs.

The rest of the house is pretty spectacular, too. There’s a bright formal dining room off of the main living area, an airy kitchen with blue-and-white tiled floors, updated bathrooms, a home office, two bedrooms, and a garage that’s been converted into a soundproofed studio.
