2615 Van Buren Place Is For Sale

It is rare that a home comes up for sale on the 2600 block of Van Buren Place. It is the original block of the city's Adams-Normandie Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, the city's name for its historic districts. Twelve of the fourteen houses on the block are on the Secretary of the Interior's Register of Historic Places. It is just south of Adams Blvd., halfway between Vermont and Normandie Avenues, very close to Downtown, and in walking distance to USC.

2615 is a smaller, and much newer (1983), house than the two-story century-old houses that give the block its character, but for that reason it is also much less money. The asking price is $379,900. The house, set back behind its garage, is one story, 1,001 square feet. It has three bedrooms, two baths, with a laundry setup in the garage. Behind the house there is a narrow garden strip that runs the width of the property, with two fruit-bearing fig trees and a banana tree.

The block is closed to traffic at the Adams Blvd side, with a decorative fence just at the end of the 2615 property line, which means there is very little traffic. There is an active block club, the Van Buren Place Community Restoration Association, founded in 1980, which maintains this website. We look forward to welcoming new neighbors to the block when the house is sold.

The real estate agent handling the property is Gloria Archila of Berkshire Hathaway:
