Victorian Charm With an Epic Yard and a White Picket Fence

What a stunner this house is, situated on a double lot behind a white picket fence on an adorable little street in the Angelino Heights area of Echo Park. Yet another end of the Victorian-era/beginning of Craftsman-era home built when this neighborhood was experiencing a boom in 1904 and showing elements of both architectural styles. Homes of this era are known for their abundance of woodwork inside and it is so rare to find one retaining so much of that original unpainted wood as this one has.

839 East Kensington Road, Echo Park – $959,000
3bd, 2.5ba, 2,460sf interior on a staggering 8,147 square foot lot.

Forgetting about the woodwork, the leaded glass windows, the fireplace, the square footage, and all of the vintage charm retained in this house, even more rare in LA these days is the massive flat private backyard found beyond the deck. The photos speak for themselves…

Light and Bright in Elysian Heights

It’s always nice to find a modern/contemporary home that feels warm and welcoming rather than stark and of course it’s no surprise that a home such as this would come out of ultra-bohemian Elysian Heights in Echo Park. Perhaps it is the surrounding mahogany decks, the original douglas fir floors that were salvaged and re-imagined as a 3-d feature wall, the wonderful views, or the thoughtfully xeriscaped outdoor area (does the teepee come with the house?) but every inch of this house exudes a warm welcoming vibe.

2148 Vestal Ave, Elysian Heights – $899,000
3bd (plus bonus office space), 3ba, 1,900sf equals only $473 a square foot for your very own Echo Park sanctuary.
