Situated in the earliest development in historic View Park and rumored to have been only the 3rd property built in the highly coveted Fairland Cul De Sac, 3681 Fairland boasts an unaltered grandeur that has been stripped away from many similar Los Angeles properties. The developers of View Park, The Los Angeles Investment Company, once sold large plots of land in the most desired neighborhood locations to families who sought out to build their custom dream homes from scratch. The story told by previous owners, is one of The Loprich family, who hired James L. Mitchell in 1930 to build their family home. For the Loprich home, Mitchell chose a stately entry with Venetian plaster walls and detailed staircase iron work. The large step down living room still retains the original hearth and double inlay hardwood floors. The light filled kitchen showcases an original tiled ceiling and walls, a feature rarely seen in Los Angeles Spanish Mediterranean architecture. The 5-bedroom home offers unblocked views of DTLA from the front porch and upper bedrooms. Current owners have meticulously maintained and upgraded the home by restoring the original lead windows, installing copper plumbing, HVAC, retrofitted the foundation, upgraded the electrical panel, sewer line and added a large pool with exterior drainage. Along the perimeter and entry, outdoor entertaining and BBQ areas were added, spaces where the current owners spent more than 30 years raising their family while also happily entertaining guests and hosting parties. The property also has an unusually large basement & garage that are ideal for an office, bonus room or storage. 3681 Fairland is a rare and refreshing reminder of the architectural beauty of Los Angeles. View Park is the largest National Register historic district in California and the largest in the Country based on African American history. The neighborhood showcases a harmonious mix of classic architectural styles and high quality construction, and benefits from an immense amount of neighborhood pride. 3681 Fairland is a contributor to the View Park historic district.
