About this listing

A Spanish style and comfy Californian bungalow that is centrally located close to the 10 freeway and within a mile to the "subway to the sea" train that takes you to Downtown or Santa Monica.

Marvin Gardens is also walking distance to the newly revamped Pico Fairfax district offering great Cafés such as 'Paper and Plastic' (voted LA's best new coffee shop).

The space

Marvin Gardens is California bungalow built in 1929. I have done everything to preserve the charm. It has been decorated with pieces made and found in Los Angeles. I have taken the time to refinish most of these antiques myself.

There are chickens (fresh eggs) on the property and 5 raised box gardens. If there are vegetables, help yourself!!

There are 8 fruit trees and a relaxing back yard to sit back in and enjoy!

There is also a Weber grill with all the things needed to cook up a feast. The kitchen has most cookware needed to make a amazing meal! (The owner was a personal chef for 10 years).

Please come make yourself comfortable and enjoy all LA has to offer!
