A couple days before the end of the last century, Linda Sue and Ron found a sweet light filled bungalow. It was near Occidental College, perched on the perfect spot for enjoying sunsets and most importantly had room for a garden. For the next 20 years they poured love, blood, sweat and tears along with their wood, stone, steel and gardening skills into creating a wonderland of fruits and vegetables and native flora (which is also being enjoyed by the native fauna).
With great patience, strength and care stones were collected from travels (sometimes carried a mile back to their truck) and brought home to the Bungalow. They were then thoughtfully placed and organized to create charming walkways and stairs leading from the street up through the rear garden. Ron welded handrails for the paths that complemented the Bungalow’s window’s panes. Windows and a skylight were added to increase the already abundant light that flooded the home. The kitchen was thoughtfully planned to make use of it’s space. The garage ceiling was raised to allow more storage. The property and its garden are an excellent blend of ornamental and utilitarian features.
This is a rare find in Highland Park, let alone the Eastside.
