Bite me off a big ol’ home slice of Americana with this 1905-built Angeleno Heights Queen Anne, which looks as much at home in Echo Park as it would on Main Street USA, white picket fence and all.

A home must have much to offer to ask nearly a million dollars (in this case, $959,000) for it in Echo Park, and this one checks off most of the boxes. At nearly 2,500 sg/ft, this is a big home, built on a big (almost) double lot, with a wealth of upgrades to match.

Period craftsmanship abounds — grand staircase and foyer, rich hardwood floors, elaborately crafted fireplace, built-ins, and pocket doors are all out on full display.

The traditionalism continues on throughout the kitchen and dining rooms, including a unique trough-style sink. There is also a butler’s pantry and cellar (perfect for wine lovers!).

Turn-of-the-century detailing can be found everywhere, including the bathroom — from wainscoting and pedestal sink — to tile floors, French doors, and even a freestanding tub.

Second floor guests can also enjoy their own covered porch, which is great for all year-round use and lazy Sundays.

The double lot is an entertainer’s dream. Not only does it allow for a sprawling deck with brick hearth, but also a yard and secondary fire pit.

There is even a small cottage that’s perfect for a quiet studio/office space.
