“Wow, just wow!” is how Katrina first described seeing her home, one of four Spanish-style bungalows sold as Tenants in Common (TIC) units in Echo Park.
Katrina Caso, an interior designer who specializes in “clean, minimalist spaces you can actually live in,” creates gorgeous interiors for her clients and desired an inspiring space of her own. So, when these tenants in common units (a fairly new concept in Los Angeles real estate) hit the market, it was a unique and golden opportunity and precisely what she was looking for.
She gunned for the unit located to the rear of the mini compound, where incredible views of the Echo Park hills and lushly landscaped surroundings allowed a sense of peace and quiet to prevail.
Flooded with sunlight, the interior offers an array of original 1930s details, including original hardwood floors and a step-down living room. An enclosed porch makes for a perfect at-home office, a formal dining room, barrel ceilings, a decorative fireplace, arched doorways, and windows that bring in the green scenery of its surroundings.
There are also two en suite bedrooms with bathrooms still sporting their original tile.
Located on the same street as Raphael Soriano’s Ross House, the setting provides easy access to hiking trails in Elysian Park. It’s also a block from Pollen restaurant and a short stroll to local hotspots like Chango, Valerie, Cookbook, and Ostrich Farm.
I can’t wait to see what Katrina does with her new place.
