One remarkable feature of the property is a fruit-bearing avocado tree that was planted by the sellers' grandfather in the 1940s. This detail adds a touch of nostalgia and provides a unique connection to the past. The listing also notes that the garage space has the potential to be converted into an accessory dwelling unit, allowing for the creation of a four-unit residence.
