1017 Waterloo Street Unit 2D

A new year, and finally some new inventory as well. Condo living certainly has its ups and downs, but the unit here at 1017 Waterloo Street is just one of four in a building that gives you both the outdoor space and a fair amount of privacy one comes to expect from a house.

1017 Waterloo Front

Hitting the market for an even $700,000 (can’t remember last time I’ve seen this), this relatively new condo (2007) comes with 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms (though it may actually be 2.5), all in a healthy 1,360 square foot package.

1017 Waterlook Kitchen:Den

Once inside you are greeted by a large living room/dining room area filled with light and warm bamboo flooring. The galley kitchen, with ample cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, is open on both ends with a large island that still leaves enough space for an adequate dining table.

1017 Waterloo den

With that there is still room available for other furniture, along with a carpeted den off to the side, which opens to a private outdoor patio. With an open setup such as this, no matter where you are, you won’t miss a thing. And, the patio space feels more like an extension of the living room that is perfect for al fresco entertaining or avid grill fans.

1017 Waterloo Porch

Stairs lead you to what they call a “library hallway,” but feel free to make the space whatever you desire: library, extra storage space, museum, maybe even a small indoor herb garden. Dream big.

Both bedrooms are carpeted. While the master isn’t huge, it does have its own bathroom en suite, along with a very large outdoor deck space, which is perfect for tanning nude — if you’re into that sort of thing.

The second bedroom is just that, though it’s a healthy size with ample lighting, while the bathrooms are modern-ish enough to neither offend nor excite.

2124 Reservoir Street

While million dollar homes are commonplace in Los Feliz and neighborhoods further west, they were almost unheard of in Echo Park until not that long ago. And, yet, here we have another at 2124 Reservoir Street. With 3 bedrooms, 3 baths this traditional home supposedly built in 1895 (though it looks more like the numbers should read “1985”) is asking one and a quarter million.

Are those storm clouds gathering in the foreground? Nah.

Are those storm clouds gathering in the foreground? Nah.

Though it may have the exterior color palette of a pimped-out Chrysler 300 and the staging may be rather ostentatious, there is definitely something worthwhile here. With 2,000 square feet inside on a nearly 7,700 square foot lot, you have a lot of room to play.

2124 Reservoir Living

Rebuilt in 2009, (which explains a lot) along with even more recent upgrades, you are first welcomed by a very contemporary living and dining room set up.

2124 Reservoir Dining

One huge bright spot, both literally and figuratively, is the kitchen where modern stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, copious white cabinetry, and the dark hardwood floors all come together seamlessly.

2124 Reservoir Kitchen

Just off the kitchen you’ll also find a covered porch area made of Ipe wood and complete with fan.

2124 Reservoir Deck

Upstairs you’ll find a respectably large master bedroom complete with walk-in closet, private deck, and views.

2124 Reservoir Master

The master also has a rather contemporary bathroom designed by HGTV’s Scott Thomas that includes Caesarstone countertops and vanity, Carrara marble floors, and a steam shower, though we’ve never had any problem making any shower a steam shower.

2124 Reservoir Bath

We’re pretty sure no offspring, in-law, or guest would complain about their digs in the other two bedrooms either.

2124 Reservoir Bed 2124 Reservoir Bed 2

Out back you’ll find a spa, Sentry RiverPool (the stationary bike of swimming), and approved plans for a 1+1 guesthouse over a garage.

1298 3/4 West Sunset Boulevard

If good things come in small packages, do better things come in smaller, cubed shaped packages? If so, maybe that would make 1298 3/4 West Sunset Blvd. the engagement ring of homes and priced at $499,000. Possibly…

1298 Sunset front

Though just a hair over 1,000 square feet, a box such as this is a perfect example of how to maximize usable living space. With 10′ ceilings and windows all around, this relatively small 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home feels surprisingly spacious.

1298 Sunset living

Built in 2014 with a modern aesthetic, the bottom floor is comprised of one large, living and dining area. The large windows and light hardwood floors help exaggerate the airiness.

1298 Sunset kitchen

With multiple sliding glass doors all around and porches outside, there is plenty of room to open and entertain. Stainless steel appliances and Corian counters certainly, help too.

1298 Sunset living 2

Upstairs you’ll find the bedrooms, bath, and laundry closet. Neither bedroom is huge, but you do get lovely views of the mature fauna out back.

1298 Sunset master

1298 Sunset bed

A single bathroom is always a risky venture, but at least this one has privacy glass, double sinks, and a clean contemporary design. We’d expect nothing less.

1298 Sunset bath

They did a great job creating an inviting environment in such a small outdoor space. The wraparound porch, mature trees and sweet rusted, chrome walls really do a nice job of bringing everything together.

1530 Allesandro Street

Whether it’s new construction or a thoroughly updated home such as this, to be competitive in this market there are certain checks that must be marked in order to get the attention of discriminating buyers. The valiant effort made by this fine bungalow, here at 1530 Allesandro Street, should satisfy most of those customers.

1530 Allesandro Front

Originally built in 1921, this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom dwelling has been extensively rehabbed inside and out, from new plumbing, electrical and HVAC, to oil-rubbed finished white oak floors and an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances. All 1,400+ square feet of this home can all be yours for the starting price of $879,000.

1530 Allesandro Kitchen

One huge plus that is out of character for an older home such as this are the above-average bedroom sizes. From the master to the smallest of the two guest bedrooms, nothing could be classified as a penalty box, and all of them offer a lot of light and space.

1530 Allesandro Master

The master bedroom sits on the main floor, and gets its own private balcony with downtown views, while the two guest rooms can be found on the lower level. Unfortunately, the wood flooring is absent from those rooms, though there is new carpet.

1530 Allesandro Bed 2 1530 Allesandro Bed 3

Drought-tolerant plants can be found throughout and an extensive parking area has been carved out in back. While we wish more of the yard was left for added greenery, there is enough room available to install a swimming pool if one so pleases.

2028 El Moran Street

Do you appreciate the old-time charm of a turn of the century home, as well the clean lines of a contemporary dwelling? How about a little extra income earned from having investment property? Who said you had to choose? With 2028 El Moran, you can have it all (if, of course, that is your thing).

2028 El Moran Front

For $899,000 you get a bright and airy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with incredible views of Elysian Heights and beyond, along with a still quite livable 2 bedroom, 1 bath bottom unit. Additionally, at nearly 11,500 square feet, the home sits on a large lot with plenty of space to play.

2028 El Moran Living

Inside you’ll find a spacious living area with fireplace, along with a dining area and updated kitchen that includes new custom cabinetry, marble counter tops, and a vintage stove mixed among the newer appliances. We’re definitely digging it.

2028 El Moran Kitchen

Thankfully, this half modern home comes with full modern amenities, including a security system and central a/c.

2028 El Moran Dining

Oh yeah, almost forgot, those great views I mentioned earlier come courtesy of a huge wraparound deck.

2028 El Moran Deck

The two bedrooms are comfortably sized. The bold lighting is a nice touch as well.

2028 El Moran Master 2028 El Moran Bed

The bathroom itself, with a seamless mix of pedestal sink, subway tile, and ultramodern glass shower perfectly demonstrate the melding of past, present and future on display.

2028 El Moran Bath

The second unit is clean, if slightly less showy than the larger unit, with a quaint kitchen, 2 bedrooms, and laundry.

2028 El Moran Guest Living

2028 El Moran Guest Kitchen

With so much outdoor space beyond the deck, there should be plenty of space for both occupants.

2028 El Moran Yard 2028 El Moran Porch

The yard’s hardscape perfectly complements ivy and bougainvillea, while creating lovely spaces to entertain.
