    Really lovely house nicely restored, with an interesting collection of old stuff. The period wallpaper is more subdued and realistic than some overwrought displays we see. The kitchen and baths are beautifully done also!

      Honestly, after comparing the pictures from this listing and the ones in your blog post, I think the current paint job is a MASSIVE improvement. It’s more comfortable on the eyes and lets you really appreciate the patterns of the siding, porch and roof.

      1875 Italianate cottage
      Noblesville, IN

      What he said: + I really, really like the lacquer effect on the cabinetry.

      In Kelly’s movie locations link you can see the tres sweet O&M 600 stove in situ. It’s probably been there since new. Noice.

      Exterior colors a huge improvement over chalky pink and sea foam IMO. Looks great!

      That bar area looks SO familiar.

    Kelly, I believe the TV show Charmed was filmed on this street in an Italianate house. Thanks for the post.

      Yes, the Italianate house for TV’s Charmed was on Carroll Avenue right across the street from the Sessions house: ( https://goo.gl/maps/sGqWpaj6yL22) This is another J.C. Newsom designed home (look at the gable with the circular ornament and patterned shingles almost identical to those on this smaller house) I’ve long wondered about the neglected house right next to the Charmed house: https://goo.gl/maps/F1EAzbLY9uS2 It looked neglected back in the 1990’s when Charmed was a popular TV show. I notice now some restoration work has been completed but the front still needs to be restored. With prices topping a million, any old house in this neighborhood would bring the most money restored. Thankfully, the Angelino Heights neighborhood has mostly survived while the once posh Bunker Hill neighborhood remains now only in archival photos. The former 1880’s Leonard L. Bradbury mansion, also a Newsom Bros. design, was arguably the finest home the brothers designed in Los Angeles. But it was demolished in the 1940’s and now a courthouse sits on the site. Thankfully as well that the San Francisco/Silicon Valley trend of buying an old Victorian then totally gutting and putting in a cutting edge modern interior hasn’t reached here, at least not yet. I like the details in this fairly intact period home.

    I absolutely love it, especially the decor but I am just not a fan of L.A. If only it could be relocated and all the furniture and fixtures came with it.

    Amazing! I am not a huge fan of Victorians, but this one is really great! I love the period wallpaper & authentic interiors, again not my style, but the get A+++ for their selections. And the kitchen is amazing too! Great period style design, I wonder if the casework is original just refinished dark? Perfect interpretation of a period kitchen, yet is clean, sleek and “modern” Bravo! Nice baths, great collector pieces, I think I would be great friends with the owner, although my collections are smaller. Oh, the original windows, too, thank God! People, NEVER replace your windows, nothing will ever perform as well, no matter what a salesman, contractor, engineer, realtor, or even an architect (I am one) will tell you.

    Don’t usually go for clutter, but I’m getting a kick out of this one. Plus the kitchen is unique, for a change. I do hope there is a pantry, though.

    millions $ location, mostly celebrities and artists ! and the house? wow!

    • Marc says: 179 comments

      This house is in Angelino Heights, right in between Silver lake and downtown LA, both of which are very popular places to be/live right now. Probably not too many celebrities here, they tend to live a bit higher up in the hills where the views and privacy are better. Considering that LA real estate prices are what they are, this is a fantastic location and price for a rare LA victorian. It’s very hard to find old houses with anything original left inside here.

    Holy cow, that first initial shot of the stairwell is a show-stopper!

    I also think that the memorabilia manages to look interesting without becoming too busy, which is a mistake that’s all too easy to make. The upper-level landing and the dining room are both really good examples of visual balance, whether it’s the TWA poster acting as a larger focal point compared to the smaller pictures on the left, or the small picture and taxidermied bust balancing out the larger portrait on the other side of the window. It might look cluttered at first glance, but the walls that’re crammed with pictures balance out the gorgeous windows and dark wood doors. Even the lack of curtains on certain windows was probably a deliberate choice! Whoever decorated this house had an excellent eye for design.

    And when it comes to the wallpaper, it’s intricate without being overly garish or clashing, because the main designs restrict themselves to only two colors and a few hue gradients. With the deeper colors of the ceilings and wooden built-ins, it’s an amazing balancing act between light and dark that really helps make it easier on the eyes. I don’t think I could bring myself to change a single thing, inside or out!

    That’s some high-level Victorian we have here! Love the wavy shingle pattern on the exterior. The Chalet-style house next to it is interesting too!
