Notable Properties:

1124 & 1126 Echo Park Avenue:  Heyday’s “Dick + Jane” HOMES and entry into the Echo Park market were well received, especially since both newly-constructed, sustainable properties were sold less than 2 weeks on the market.  Polished concrete floors, an expansive redwood deck, and a private alfresco dining area contributed to the draw.

1701 Clinton Street #307 & #512:  The Allyn E. Morris-designed condos, Lago Vista c. 1973,  never cease to amaze.  Don’t let the less-than-900-square-foot label scare you.  These townhouse units offer sweeping picture-perfect views of Echo Park Lake and — even with a sales range in the $300s — still command an enviable address.  Unit #512, Allyn Morris’s own unit, boasts the only fireplace and the largest private patio on the premises.  It sold on day zero (not day 1) on the market.

1330 Quintero Street:  The hillside 4-plex, The Edwards Apartments c. 2007 by Marmol Radziner Architects, outperformed the pack.  Short sale aside, the architectural compound entered the market at $1,050,000 and sold for  $200+k over.  I would blame the sweeping views of Downtown L.A., surprisingly strong rents (the 3+2 rents at $2,995 per month), and off-street parking for 6 cars.
