This Eccentric NoHo Home Could Be Yours For $760,000
A very quirky NoHo home is on the market for $760,000. The three-bed, two-bath home was built in 1928, and has plenty of private outdoor space for you to read books with cups of tea, play with your adorable dogs or take a dip in the shapely pool. While a nightmare for someone who prefers a clean, minimalist design, you have to admire the care that went into carefully cluttering every bit of the place in patterns and folk art. There are also some fun design choices, including bright colors, fabric on the walls, and a cherry red clawfoot tub. There is also a guest house.
The "Little Mission" is a separate guest casita with full bath and artist studio designed by the artist and architectural designers who have lovingly restore this home over many years. This home was built with rare craftsmanship and character.
According to real estate site Estately, the seller appears to be Janice Stango, who is a very interesting individual herself. Stango is the mother of actress Rachel Bilson (The O.C., Hart of Dixie), and works as a sex therapist. Stango went about remodeling the garage into a sitting area using broken fragments of granite thrown away by stone yards. This remodel was highlighted in the design blog Kathy's Remodeling Blog.
The house is also walking district to the NoHo Arts District and one of our favorite bars, Idle Hour.
If oddball houses are your thing, two similar homes recently went on the market: a more subdued, yet still colorful A-Frame in Mt. Washington, and a Highland Park ranch with an entire room dedicated to Stephen King's Carrie.
