Modern Home in Echo Park Capturing Landmark Views Asks $1.9M

This modern home is sited on the same premiere block in Elysian Heights as the record-setting sale of architect Rachel Allen’s modernist compound.

Owners David King, a local contractor who runs DTK Builders, and his wife, Allison Levinson King, an acupuncturist, teamed up with Unruh Boyer, an architecture, interior design, and planning firm, to help them remodel and expand their home.

Now a two-story modern gem measuring 2,524 square feet, the home captures the expansive landmark views of the neighborhood with a gracious, open floor plan.

The main level opens to a grand living room showing off custom built-ins while large, strategically placed windows let in light and the surrounding views.

Borrowing a design feature of modernist architects, the kitchen features a corner window. The kitchen also features loads of cabinet space, a marble baker’s island, and high-end appliances.

The second floor contains a primary suite, two additional bedrooms, a bath, an office, a balcony, and a third-floor roof with 360° views.

The Kings hired Kathleen Ferguson, known for her minimal and modern landscape design sensibilities, to tackle the yard.

The hardscape and verdant garden are beautifully defined for a multitude of uses. There’s a built-in table and benches nestled under the custom metal canopy, a gas fire pit perfect for roasting s’mores, and a vegetable garden, fruit trees, and a modern play-fort tucked away for maximum amusement. Located at 2165 Lemoyne St, the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home listed by Alyssa Valentine & Courtney Smith, asking $1,895,000.
