While it’s inaccessible by vehicles, a designer saw an opportunity to use a variance to build a small modern house with views on a dirt lot tucked alongside one of Echo Park’s secluded stair streets.
Extending a nod to modernist homes, the main house, measuring a cozy 770 square feet, opens to an airy interior with high ceilings and strategically placed windows letting in leafy views. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass walls allow a wonderful indoor/outdoor flow out to a spacious deck and multiple lounging areas surrounding the structure.
A single-line designer kitchen sports custom wood cabinetry and a wine cooler, looking onto the open living and dining area.
Crossing the deck takes you to another structure — permitted initially as a rec room — fitted with white oak floors, a kitchenette, and a sophisticated bathroom with an aromatherapy steam shower and Bluetooth speakers. The current owner utilized this space as a bedroom and started the process of formally converting this area into an ADU.
Surrounded by lush landscaping and cradled by the Elysian Park expansion, 2362 Landa Street is listed for $1.098 million.
