Los Angeles house description

This Echo Park property is absolutely amazing. Hidden in the hills above Dodger Stadium, in a trendy neighborhood with shops and cafes just down the hill, our Echo Park house is 5 minutes from Downtown LA, and a stone’s throw from Silver Lake, Burbank and Glendale.

Cozy, Craftsman, 2 Bedroom, 1 bath bungalow on a sprawling corner lot at the top of Elysian Park.

Relax in privacy in the plush front yard, or cultivate and forage in the huge vegetable garden, currently featuring ripening tomatoes, fruit trees, (orange, grapefruit, nectarine, lemon, plum, peach plus grape vines) shade trees and a wisteria covered front porch. And that's just the outside! --

The inside is elegantly appointed with an eclectic mix of Victorian and Mid Century Modern furniture. Hardwood floors - Batchelder tile fireplace -- Tile floor in the kitchen -- handmade plates and bowls from Irving Place Studios. - washer/dryer - high speed internet, WiFi, Premium cable and built-in stereo speakers throughout the house and garden to
LISTEN to VINYL records on the turntable in the living room.
The bedroom windows look out over old growth trees on the property to VIEW the GRIFFITH OBSERVATORY and the HOLLYWOOD SIGN.


The kitchen becomes the dining room which opens out to the flagstone patio and lush front lawn. And, you can walk or jog or bike the quiet trails of Elysian Park directly across the street and watch the fireworks displays above Dodger Stadium from the privacy of the front yard.
