Airy Mid-Century with ADU in the heart of Highland Park

Overlooking the trees, rooftops and San Gabriel Mountains beyond, 936 Dexter Street embodies open plan living at its most luminous. One airy, flowing room sweeps from living to kitchen/dining area, ending at a wide glass door framing the view and folding open to a long deck.

Below, a stepped backyard flows through three magical entertaining levels: a covered patio; a sunken fire pit with seating for ten or more; and a lighted, trellised dining area.

The kitchen is a gleaming medley of stainless steel Italian commercial grade appliances, flat-paneled wood cabinetry, glass mosaic details, and an oversized island with waterfall quartz countertop. The bedrooms are highlighted by a master suite with French doors that open to the deck.

Amenities include an oversized terrazzo shower with Brizo fixtures and a bath with oak double vanity. Two more bedrooms and a full bath complete the home’s private area.

Ambience is controlled by automated lighting, climate, surveillance and surround sound systems that operate at the touch of a smart device. A carport completes the setting.

On the lower level, a second unit with separate address and entry features ten-foot ceilings, a bath with oak vanity, and hexagonal porcelain tile and terrazzo flooring.

The open kitchen features walnut cabinetry, a quartz waterfall peninsula with gas cooktop, stainless steel dishwasher and double refrigerator.

Highland Park’s trendy shops, restaurants and pubs are moments away. Listed by Ed Ortiz and Yonathan Baltazar at $1,249,999.
