2420 Echo Park

2420 Echo Park

Perched high in the lush, tranquil hills of Elysian Park sits 2420 Echo Park (cue Julie Andrews singing “The Sound of Music”), a charming 1928 Craftsman that is back on the market at $699,000. Not content with offering just great views, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has all the character of its era, but with modern updates including bolted foundation, new copper plumbing, central air and heat, and more.

2420EP Front

Vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, chandeliers, and a large fireplace all bring warmth and character to the open living area. New-ish dark hardwood floors add the finishing touch.

2420EP Living

While they may look period, the bathroom has been updated with locally-produced Granada tile.

2420EP Bath

I can truly appreciate the tastefully updated, yet respectfully retro kitchen, with shiny new Bosch appliances.  Though you can’t tell from the images, the kitchen is a floor below the living room and bedrooms.  A little peculiar, but not a deal breaker.

2420EP Kitchen

What’s certainly not peculiar is the large deck located off the kitchen — large enough for a BBQ, one of those long tables with the umbrella in the middle of it, a keg, all of your friends with their kids, dogs, egos, baggage.  You get the idea.

2420EP Back

But if the crowd gets too loud and you’re looking for a place to retreat, or just want to watch the sunset, may I suggest this lovely terraced garden.
