723 Echo Park Terrace

723 Echo Park Terrace

With its amazing hillside view of the newly renovated Echo Park Lake, 723-725 Echo Park Terrace feels like that perfect little urban oasis hidden in the Angeleno Heights hills of EP.  If you’re someone who enjoys waking up and looking out over your vast Eastside kingdom – this may be the property for you.

Offered at $749,000 and just shy of 1,500 sq/ft, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath duplex — each unit is a 1+1  — was built in 1950 and is full of period character.  The living room features hardwood floors, large windows and a long built in bookshelf running the length of the room, which also doubles as a perfect perch for taking in views.

The kitchen maintains much of its Mid-Century charm, including it’s cheerful color palette.  The green, white, and burgundy would work just as well on an old Buick of that era.  While it may be too much for some, I appreciate their restraint in resisting the urge to update it.  The breakfast nook and bench are also a plus.

While not content to offer just views, the property also features a lovely, well-manicured yard and picnic area, just large enough to entertain your small dog or child — or both.  Possibly even some friends, too.

EPTer Garden

The area is lovely, but if there are any minor drawbacks, it’s that the home doesn’t have much of a facade. The yard IS the facade, while the street view is this…

EPTer Garage

Certainly not a deal breaker, but not the prettiest face to show the world either.  Perhaps a new splash of paint and horizontal wood siding would make for an easy makeover.

For a private showing, please contact Jovelle Schaffer at (213) 718-1110.
