The stunning Dines and Kraft Tudor at 6914 Westlake Avenue has plenty of curb appeal, but its crown jewel is at the rear of the property. In lieu of a backyard, this Lakewood home boasts a romantic courtyard that will transport you and your guests to New Orleans. Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate’s Henda Salmeron is offering the home for $999,000.
The courtyard features multiple seating areas on two levels, a centerpiece fountain, and a fireplace. The entire scene can also be taken in from above, thanks to the Big Easy-style balcony attached to the master suite. The courtyard provides a seamless transition between the house and the guest quarters, which are attached to a two-garage complemented by a car port.
This home, which dates to 1928 but has been expanded and remodeled, offers an additional outdoor entertaining area separate from the courtyard. At the front of the house is a screened-in porch with a ceiling fan. The porch has its own exterior door, but it can also be accessed from the formal living room and the den.
The formal living room is the first room your guests will see when they enter the front door. They’ll immediately get a sense of the home’s attractive details, including soaring ceilings and arched interior doorways. The living room features a wall of stained-glass windows and a fireplace framed by intricately designed tiles.
Beyond two of the aforementioned arched doorways are the den and the dining room. The latter room is connected to the kitchen by a breakfast room with a buffet counter and built-in shelves. The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, glass-front white cabinets, and a backsplash of painted tiles.
There are two bedrooms downstairs, but the master suite is on the second level, along with a fourth bedroom and a third living area. The master suite boasts an exceptional walk-in closet and a claw-footed tub.
