Set back from the road on a tiny cul-de-sac, this little (900 sq ft) Lincoln Heights Spanish home is in a surprisingly rural part of Los Angeles. Only 4 miles from downtown, it sits between two undeveloped hills (one of which is Ascot Hills Park) and feels relatively peaceful. It's not exactly a hip area but it's relatively calm, although you will probably hear the neighbor's dogs and roosters from time to time. There are plenty of open places to walk and jog nearby, with great views of the city. An avocado tree on the property and one on the neighbor's property keep the house pretty cool on the inside without the need for air conditioning. They also bestow the makings for great guacamole.
There are 2 bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and the other with a pull out, queen-size couch. There is also a couch in the living room. There's a full kitchen, including a dishwasher and BBQ, as well as a washer and dryer in the garage. You're welcome to contribute your kitchen scraps to our compost.
There is space for 1 car in the driveway. Extra cars will need to park on the street or arrange with us in advance.
This is a pretty quiet neighborhood and we consider ourselves to be good neighbors. Since you are an extension of us, a general "Be nice" policy is in place.
Additionally in that spirit, our driveway is an easement through the neighbor's property. There will be one parking space available unless you arrange with us in advance. Please do not park below our property line or you will block the neighbors' access to their gate. If you need space for a second car, please let me know and we can try to arrange. Also, in rare cases, people end up blocking the entrance to our gate because street parking is hard to find. Just blow your horn and someone will come out and move the car. It can be a little annoying but people are always apologetic.
We have a dog, who will not be on the property at the time of rental, but if you are allergic, please take note. We do allow house trained dogs. Please, no smoking in the house.
