SOLD: 2432 Arthur St in Glassell Park

2432 Arthur St Glassell Park

Congrats to my first-time buyer who scored this sweet 2bd/1ba Spanish fixer at 2432 Arthur St in Glassell Park for $600,000! This home has so much potential with its original hardwood floors, large windows, built-ins, and barrell ceilings – it’s no wonder it received 6 offers within its first 3 days on the market.

The location is prime – she’ll have hillside sunset views from the master bedroom and backyard plus she’ll be a short jaunt over to Division 3, Habitat, Lemon Poppy Kitchen, Verdugo Bar, and the Glassell Park pool. Best of all, it has the most coveted feature of 2017; a bonus basement conversion into a 1bd/1ba apartment that can either be used with it’s own private entrance (ideal for short-term rental income) or incorporated into the rest of the home via a staircase from the living room, almost doubling the 900 sq ft assessed square footage.

The Cutest House in Echo Park is Calling You

Walking by this lovely home on my daily dog walks I’ve often marveled over it’s exterior finishes, wondered what it is like inside and what those views must look like from the many visible porches, verandas, and decks. Luckily it just hit the market and I finally got my opportunity to sneak a peek and can I just tell you, it does not disappoint.

1438 Mohawk St in Echo Park, asking $899,000
3bd, 2.75ba, 1,574sqf

I’m usually a purist when it comes to preserving the abundance of wood finishes so often found in Victorian and Craftsman era homes so I was initially disappointed to learn that much of the wood inside this home has been painted white but was delighted to see in person that it actually works really well in this particular house and makes the home feel that much more bright and spacious inside (in fact, I think it feels much larger than the listed 1,574 square feet).

The downstairs living space is large and open with a fireplace for those cool nights and access to the giant backyard and deck for the warmer ones. Upstairs you’ll find 3 bedrooms including a large master and equally spacious guest suite which both have a private deck and views for miles (bonus points for the sunset and Hollywood sign views from the front guest suite).

At $500k you still have choices. You can get into a home in an amazing location, but it may be a little on the small side. You may find a home with plenty of square footage but needing some work.

Shopping for a home under $500k is kind of like a game of Choose Your Own Adventure. Here are some adventures to get you started:
