#1. The location. (This real estate rule never dies.)
It’s located on one of the best streets in Elysian Heights; considered by many to be the crème de la crème of Echo Park.
Nature lovers will enjoy the wild oasis in the city known as Elysian Park.
It’s so close to Fix Coffee you might end up never making your own double shot latte again. Valerie Bakery is also just a short distance away. And Cookbook a “green grocer specializing in responsibly grown and super tasty meat, cheese, bread, fruit, vegetables, coffee, and chocolate” is also just down the street.
Sidenote: Cookbook has the best bacon. Ever.
#2. It has good bones (a really important consideration for any fixer scenario.)
From the hardwood floors to the barrel ceilings in the living room, and the original casement windows many of the circa 1927 details are still intact.
This fixer home is sited on a lush hilly corner lot offering meandering pathways surrounded by mature succulent gardens, multiple seating areas, and stunning canyon, mountain and city light views.
#4. Future Expansion.
We know life changes. And maybe now, it’s just you, or you and your boo. So, the house with a coat of White Heron paint by Benjamin Moore and some tweaks in the kitchen and bathroom works just fine.
But let’s say somewhere in your future you find yourself welcoming the pitter-patter of little feet. The lot size measures 6,384 square feet making future expansion a real, viable, option.
And, not only that, with an R2 zoning you might be able to build a full studio that functions as a home office and/or an Airbnb rental.
Considering the location and the vintage details, listed at $799,000 this gem is priced to attract multiple offers and fly out the door at a much higher price.
