The former home owner, Liz Tooley @lizzzt wrote a beautiful love letter to the future buyers of 5133 Granada St:
“Welcome to “Little Machu Picchu”! A house I bought back in the summer of 2012. Let me tell you a little bit about the time we spent together.
I’d been on a long, three year quest of saving, loan approval and was so excited to finally find the place I’d call home.
The house was just what I was looking for. Rehabbed, but not without keeping some of the uniqueness of her bones. She was secluded enough for privacy, but not out of the city and the yard was a dream come true! Plus there’s a small attic with plenty of storage space and a carport just for me. It was a match made in heaven.
I have to say the yard was a barren wasteland when I first arrived. The orchard up top, one orange, one tangerine, three lemon, one nectarine, one apple, one grapefruit and one pomegranate, were intact but hadn’t been taken care of properly for years. My first step was to tackle the retaining walls. We replaced two right away and after several months we were ready to amend the soil of the trees, add in drip irrigation then plant away!
Most of the succulents, agave and cactus were planted from a pinch of existing ones around the neighborhood, thanks to my amazing neighborhood!
I really hope you’ll love and care for this place as much as I did. It’s a magical little home buried within the wonderful neighborhood of Highland Park. I’m off to new adventures, but I’ll never forget her.”
