Steps to the world famous Sowden House, with a personal walk-gate into star studded and celebrity filled Laughlin Park sits 5231 Franklin Avenue. Two lots, totaling approximately 23,000 square feet, offers ultimate potential and flexibility. Italianate architecture, influenced by the Beautiful Beaux-Arts movement fits effortlessly into the Southern California vernacular. Original moldings, chinoiserie details and period fixtures have withstood the test of time.

The formal dining room floods with natural light. Charming, vintage kitchen opens to the bright and cheerful breakfast room. Large and perfectly proportioned bedrooms outfit the upper level. Bathrooms with original tiles and original millwork reflect the period and are a nod to Hollywood's Golden Era. Huge additional space upstairs can be reimagined to accommodate the most discerning buyers. Separate work space off the garage and music room can be used in myriad ways. Rear pedestrian gate offers access directly into Laughlin Park. Rumored to have been home to one of Los Angeles's most noted silent film stars.
