The Anita Addison Residence::1906:: At the turn of the century, Adams-Normandie was one of Los Angeles’ most prestigious communities comprised mostly of stately Arts and Crafts style homes. As such, The Addison residence is a rare and shining display of the foresight and craftsmanship that went into the development of the area. Once owned by notable resident Anita Addison who was an Oscar-nominated Director, and one of the first African-American-Female executives at a major television network. This three-story residence welcomes one into an incredibly private setting behind mature trees and vegetation. A grand porch leads to a one-of-a-kind stained glass door and leaded glass sidelights. The interior has many unblemished original details reminiscent of a Frank Tyler design. The home retains most of its original finishes such as: diamond-patterned windows; leaded glass built-ins; a grand stairway and banister; built-in benches; box beam ceilings; and, an impressive fireplace with a subtle egg and dart design. The breakfast nook has authentic reproduction Santa Barbara-style doors. The kitchen includes Arts and Crafts style cabinetry and 1936 Garland Range. The home includes 4 bedrooms (one converted to a walk-in closet), 2 baths, plus an unusually large finished attic with a 3rd bath for additional space. The rear of the almost 7000 square foot lot has a guest house (unpermitted) totaling 3888 square feet of usable space. Upgrades include HVAC, tankless water heater, and whole-house water filtration system. This home sits just minutes from neighborhood amenities such as Bird's Nest Cafe, Ebae's, and Nature's Brew; and, is only a short drive to the USC Village which houses Target and Trader Joe’s. The property is a contributor to the Adams-Normandie HPOZ and within the Budlong, Juliet, and Catalina Block Club.
