It’s a Home + a Creative Studio Space!
From the street 5749 Troost looks like other pre-war traditional-style homes in North Hollywood. You may think you know what to expect once you are inside – hardwood floors, very little ornamentation, quality built-in cabinetry. This one has all of that plus a whole lot more.
The living room features a tray ceiling and recessed lighting. An arched doorway leads from the living room to the back hallway and the bedrooms.
Tasteful updates, meticulous maintenance and upgraded systems are all evident here. Newer plumbing, electrical, windows, roof, and central air are a few of the new and improved items. The vintage stove remains.
The cast-iron tub, tiled countertops and custom cabinetry remain in the bathroom – very nice vintage touches.
Right outside the back door you have a brick patio surrounded by lush, mature greenery. The great outdoors!
There are raised planter beds, a specimen olive tree, a vine-covered arch, a magnificent maple tree and so much more in the backyard.
Just when you think you have seen it all… there’s another building! This is the detached studio space.
Up the porch and through the doors you arrive in the studio’s foyer. The vintage dresser has been cleverly repurposed as a vanity and there’s a half-bath off to the side.
This is the main room of the detached studio building. Wow! The space is huge, about 20′ x 20,’ and wide open. Natural light pours in through 2 skylights and multiple windows. Built by-the-book and with permits and thoughtfully-designed, this incredible space lends itself to a myriad of creative uses. A recording studio, home office, art studio, speakeasy… The list is endless.
Here’s the view of the backyard and outdoor living room from the studio porch on the way out.
Built in 1941, 5749 Troost Avenue is a fine example of the Minimalist Traditional style of residential architecture popular from 1930 – 1950 in the United States. The Spanish-Colonial Revival craze of the roaring 20’s, especially popular in Southern California, came to a screeching halt when the Great Depression started. The Minimalist Traditional style that rose to prominence in the 1930’s was a rejection of the excessive ornamentation of the roaring 20’s and a reflection of more austere times. Minimalist Traditional remained the most popular style of residential architecture until the ranch-style era began in the 1950’s.
