Tuesday Two Hundred: Add a Second Bath to This Hollywood Heights Tudor And it Puts the “OH!” in Perfecto!

Published October 10, 2012 by Joanna England

I know that having only one bathroom in a moderately sized house is a difficult proposal for the home’s occupants. It takes, patience, sharing, and throwing modesty to the wind to make it work. And even then, well, it’s frustrating and mommy wants her wine and bubble bath, so yeah, the door is locked, so deal with it!


So when I see a super cute house in a great area that I totally fall in love with, I have a really difficult time dealing with the fact that there is just one bathroom. No half baths. No water closets. Just one lonely bathroom.

Now, this home does have a really superb opportunity to add a second bathroom and perhaps make a master suite. One of the bedrooms has an attached office, and even half of that office could make a passable second bath. If you’re interested in just adding a half bath, the utility room off of the kitchen would be a great second option, too. And it’s already tiled!

Otherwise, 908 Monte Vista Drive, priced at $265,000, is as cute as a button. Other than the missing bathroom, this place is ready to move in with fresh paint, beautiful floors, an updated kitchen, and a gleaming vintage bath.

This home is 1,290 square feet, which wouldn’t feel all that big if the existing walls between the living and dining spaces were still there. Instead, these two areas are open and give the home a much more spacious feel.

The kitchen has plenty of room, too, with a breakfast nook, gorgeous cabinets for plenty of storage, and tons of counter-top space, too.

There is a spacious, detached two-car garage in the backyard, which is catty-corner to a beautiful deck that overlooks a quaint rear lawn. This is an excellent spot for garden parties!

I want to know, though, am I the only one who has a hard time with the one bathroom issue?
