1961 Preston Avenue

1961 Preston Avenue

Homes like 1961 Preston Avenue are quickly becoming the new normal of Echo Park — generic, updated bungalows that will comfortably satisfy early urban adapters. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

1961 Preston Front

Crawling ever closer to Silver Lake prices, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home comes to us at $869,000 for just around 1,450 square feet. Beginning with a garage and a beautifully terraced front yard, full of drought tolerant plants, there is much to appreciate.

1961 Preston Living

With large windows and dark hardwood floors, the living room, and dining/kitchen area share a large open space that’s excellent for hosting.

With its own sliding door leading out, the en suite master–with newly renovated bathroom–is rather spacious.

While the other two bedrooms are decidedly smaller, neither would be a penalty box.

Both bathrooms have been updated with inoffensive contemporary stone and tile work.

Thankfully, the detached studio out back doesn’t require you giving up the garage, though at that distance it may require a separate Wi-Fi router. This is a small price to pay for an 8,700 square foot lot.

1961 Preston Yard

With neighbors perched slightly above the property line, nude sunbathing is unfortunately out of the question. Unless, of course, you’re fine with that sort of thing. Oh, it’s also great for cookouts. I probably should have lead with that.

In that off chance the weather does sour, it’s good to know there is enough space on the porch to keep things going strong.
