RARE opportunity to own in the historic district of Old Torrance. Built in 1922, this charming craftsman duplex has had only 3 owners in 100 years! Location can not be beat being 1 street from El Prado allowing for walking distance to all that Old Torrance has to offer including: El Prado Park, authentic cuisine restaurants, shopping, bakery, craft breweries, antique stores, boutiques…all within about a 4 mile drive to the beach! This R-3 lot consists of 2 separate homes each with its own front & backyards and both with charming front porches. A tall fence and fruit trees provide extremely unique privacy between the 2 houses. Inside exudes charm with the style of years gone by. The front house has the original (interior re-built) brick fireplace, built-in cabinets and also a built-in breakfast nook. The back house also has original built-ins and newer flooring. Both homes come with the crown molding and all the charm one would expect from this era. An A+ location has provided a very strong rental demand. A detached garage includes laundry & storage for both units. There is also a great convertible space w/ a kitchenette & vaulted ceiling which can be used as an office/gym/studio etc. In addition to being in such an INCREDIBLE location, this property is located in the Torrance Unified School District. Imagine the untapped opportunities in upgrading & adding value to this already historic duplex lot. Great for owner occupied w/ income producing unit, multi-generational families or simply bring rents up to current market rates. This is a no brainer!! (see supplements for more detailed info)
