246 N. Park View Street

Hi-Fi, or Historic Filipinotown, has been an oft forgotten enclave of Echo Park.  Let’s dispel the rumors.  It’s always been a part of Echo Park — not adjacent to it or in its fringe — but IN it.  So is Rampart Village, Angelino Heights, Victor Heights, and Elysian Heights.  The Echo Park Historical Society may school you on the boundaries of Echo Park, so consider this a lesson.

Soapbox oration aside, let’s jump to 246 N. Park View Street.

Built in the 1930s, the Spanish-style building sits well above the street.  246 N. Park View is sited on the bottom floor and is 1 of 3 TIC (tenants-in-common) units available for purchase.

At 3 beds, 2 baths in 1,410 square feet, the $649,000 list price gets you a thoughtful floor plan and amazing space.

Character details abound in the living room — sconces, a faux fireplace, bookcase alcoves — which are all grounded by beautiful hardwood floors.

The original floors, with marquetry detailing, continue into the dining room.

The space is filled with natural light, perfect for homemade weekend brunch and overall entertaining.

The kitchen, replete with ceiling-height cabinetry, has ample storage for your vintage homewares.

And, if you couldn’t get enough original details, one of the bathrooms is covered in cheery yellow tile.

For outdoor entertaining, a patio is perfect for taking in your daily Vitamin D.

Additional features include a 1-car garage, in-unit laundry room, rear patio space, and low monthly HOA dues at $150.
