It’s not often that you see one of Los Angeles’ historic locations/establishments turned into a Cultural Monument, and rarer still that, over the years, it’s steadily evolved into a familial home. Interestingly enough, the aptly-named Huron Substation — #404 on the city’s list of iconic locations — is one such example; and now, it’s up for sale via Historic Real Estate LA.

The Huron Substation was built all the way back in 1908 as an important part of the Los Angeles transportation system, serving the masses as one of five establishments to power the locale’s Yellow Car trolleys. Over time, the structure was reevaluated, becoming a centerpiece of the community; but it wasn’t until its current owner decided to take the substation in a new direction that its future became abundantly clear. Over the past 15 years, Huron has been passionately restored into a familial structure, taking on various rustic elements, vintage furniture, and eclectic attributes to complement its nostalgic stylings. The 3,942 square-foot dwelling’s original brickwork, wooden beams, and arched windows still remain, paying homage to the lot’s historic relevance. Head over to Historic Real Estate LA’s website — where the property is listed for $3,750,000 — for more information.

Purchase: $3,750,000
