2224 Vestal Avenue

2224 Vestal Avenue

What’s wrong with a little Euro-flare? Absolutely nothing — particularly when it comes to the unique Tudor-styling of 2224 Vestal Avenue, a home that will definitely stand out amongst the Craftsman, Victorians, and Spanish-style homes that surround Elysian Heights.

As with many Echo Park homes, this one combines its original 1912 roots with modern updates — including much coveted solar panels. With four bedrooms and two baths covering just over 1,700 sq/ft, our fairytale dwelling hits the market at $825,000.

2224 Vestal Living

If I have one sole complaint regarding Vestal, it’s the carpeting found in the living room and master bedroom. Now, I am not opposed to it in general, and actually feel the color choice works for both rooms, but with hardwood floors throughout much of the home, including the dining room and guest bedrooms, what reason is there to use carpet?

Just look at how rich those wood floors look. Wouldn’t you say the bay windows and built-ins, work well with the antique-style factory pendant chandelier?

2224 Vestal Dining

The kitchen is retro done right.  I may lament the carpet, but I can’t knock the linoleum floors found here, which perfectly match the white cabinetry, tile sink and backsplash. Bonus credit goes to the bench seating.

The modern and the traditional find themselves together again in the bathroom, where a contemporary shower design meets subway tile, a pedestal sink, and wainscoting.

That beautiful flooring can be found in the guest bedrooms. While the guest rooms are clean, simple, and serviceable in size, it’s good to know there is also a detached recreation room for anyone looking to pursue their hobbies in peace.

While the front yard is currently taken up mostly by driveway, you will find some tranquility out back with a large porch offering city views, along with a healthy backyard that includes both swings and shade.
