1438 Mohawk Street

Welcome to 1438 Mohawk Street which, moving forward, shall be referred to only as the Echo Park Cool Dream Home (EPCDH for short?). If Barbie gets one, then so do we.

Why this particular home, you may ask? That will make itself clear soon enough, but first let’s get some numbers out of the way — the EPCDH comes to us at $899,000 on a robust 7,500 sq/ft lot. At almost 1,600 sq/ft it offers 3 bedrooms and 2.75 bathrooms. Modest dreams perhaps, but the devil is in the details.

It transforms the first floor living and family rooms into an area that is light and airy, while the built-ins and window fixtures maintain that sense of tradition.

The master not only has their own porch with splendid views of Hollywood and beyond, but maybe the deepest showers I’ve ever seen. As is the case downstairs, the light floors again bring a touch of modern to this 1903 Victorian.

Lest you think the master is the only room with a view, the second floor happens to have a secondary porch as well, with its own unique views of Elysian Heights. It need not be greedy.

And, if that weren’t enough, off the kitchen you’ll find a large stepped mahogany deck, complete with built-in bench, that is perfect for entertaining large parties, along with a private and naturally-shaded backyard.
