Just over a mile from Los Angeles’ Disney Hall, Music Center and downtown museums, this 1905 Dutch Colonial craftsman-Victorian hybrid in the historic Angelino Heights neighborhood of Echo Park looks south toward the DTLA skyline and west into a deep private backyard refuge with multi-layered decks and patios, a majestic avocado tree, citrus trees, koi pond and a pond-side pavilion for meditation or yoga. The interior is in excellent condition, with large windows admitting abundant light into the generous, high ceilinged living area. There are many original features: charming front entry porch, pocket doors join living and dining rooms, and French doors open from the dining room onto the top deck, creating a 54’ deep continuous space, ideal for entertaining. The large, newly remodeled kitchen opens onto the top deck and a side patio. One of the four bedrooms features a sleeping porch with quiet tree-top views. The recently remodeled bathroom features polished granite and radiant floor heat. Within short distances are Elysian Park, Dodger Stadium (1/4 mile away) and the coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and quirky shops of Sunset Boulevard. Less than 10 minutes’ drive away are entrances to 4 major freeways, the 101, 10, 110 and Interstate 5. The house’s tax-saving historic status under the Mills Act ensures low property taxes.
