2123 Branden Street

2123 Branden Street

Most homes have a general style or theme, maybe it’s a California Craftsman or a Mid-Century. Regardless of type, there is typically somewhere specific to start from. The self-described compound at 2123 Branden is its own separate beast. I say that enthusiastically, which is rare because when most people hear the word “compound” what first comes to mind is probably the Branch Davidians or Osama Bin Laden’s last domicile, and we know how those ended.

What we’ve got here is an ubiquitous Spanish-style home. Simple enough, but there is far more than meets the eye, and well worth the $639,000 asking price.

Stepping inside, the main home is 2 bedroom, 1 bath with hardwood floors, a functional fireplace, and a newly updated kitchen that features concrete countertops and stainless steel appliances. Pretty typical as Eastside homes are concerned these days.

Step outside and you’re transported to a private oasis that includes: an outdoor patio area; lush, mature vegetation; a separate picnic table with a clay fireplace; and a large fire pit.  This place begs for entertaining–and bongos.

Head past the fire pit and you’ll come across a small bonus office/den space with its own surprises.

Made from re-purposed wood, this small studio space, with loft, is a great place to relax and getaway. If only it had its own kitchen and bath, right? It almost does. Outback, you’ll find an outdoor kitchenette and shower.

Feeling very much like a game show host, “But wait! There’s more!”  In addition to all of this, there is also a huge 4-car garage that’s been fully converted into a separate unit featuring a kitchen, bathroom, living area — complete with skylights and a lot of attitude.

There is a lot to play around with here. Whether you are buying it for the lovely Spanish home, the gigantic outdoor living area, a place to get away, or for some additional income, this compound checks all the boxes.
