1336 North Douglas Street

So what can a million bucks get you in Echo Park these days? While that question has lately become depressingly less and less, it’s nice to know that every now and again something comes along that genuinely seems worth it. Something like 1336 North Douglas Street.

Located just north of Sunset Blvd. on a hillside flanking Angeleno Heights and Elysian Park, this 3-level, 1,902 square foot single family home with 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths comes to market at $989,000.

Built in 2014, this newer construction home boasts a large and bright livable living and dining area perfect for either casual weekends or hosting parties.

1336 Douglas Kitchen

The kitchen possesses clean subway tile backsplash, stainless steel Bosch appliances–along with a sizable island for casual mealtimes–but with plenty of room available for an expansive dining room table.

The door by the dining room leads out to stairs to the large rooftop deck that is ideal for taking in that perfect California sun, BBQs, or just chilling while watching the sunset with a drink.

While each bedroom has its own bathroom the master is on its own floor for additional privacy, with a large bathroom that includes dual sinks and a spacious shower.

19636 Steinway Street

For our newest listing we’re literally jumping over hills and mountains to Canyon Country, in Santa Clarita.  While it may be a stone’s throw away from Echo Park, I may just convince you to reconsider the ‘burbs.  Before Netflix debuts “Santa Clarita Diet,” a scripted comedy series about real estate agents (I swear, this is true) coming out next year, may we present 19636 Steinway Street.

Yep, pretty suburban, amirite? Spanning 1,440 square feet in an ample 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, this 1960s ranch is perfect for both full and starter families. 19636steinwayliving2

While a home such as this in Echo Park may fetch somewhere north of $900K, if one is willing to commute – the starting price is just $449,000. That can net you a lot of upgrades, though as you’ll see, many won’t be necessary.

Two large French doors off the living and dining rooms bathe the interior with tons of natural light and there’s an easy flow from the living area through to the kitchen.

While stainless steel appliances would probably be a bit more appealing, the ever popular white cabinets/wood countertops are on full display. There is also a large pantry just off the kitchen, with the guest bathroom right around the corner.

The master bedroom with en suite bath offers clean lines, good light, and a fair amount of space. 19636steinwaybed1

So used to the Echo Park market, it’s almost strange considering the possibilities of four bedrooms at this price point, but every room is a good size with nothing needing to be labeled “cozy.”

If I had to pick a favorite room, it would be the front bedroom which doubles as a den/office. The built-in wood bookshelf is easily my favorite — a mid-century touch in the home.

Of course, if entertaining is your thing, or you’re just looking for a private little oasis, the pool with open cabana just off the living and dining rooms is the perfect place to relax or throw some burgers on the grill.

1621 1/2 Rockwood Street

When searching for an ideal starter near DTLA, there are probably a few boxes you want checked. You’re most likely looking for something older with character, that still has modern amenities. Two bedrooms are a definite, maybe a little more. You’d likely want something in the middle of it all, but on a quiet street. If it’s eco-friendly, that’s a big plus too. Well, consider your wish fulfilled.

1621 rockwood front

1621 1/2 Rockwood Street is that top-floor unit in Echo Park’s historic Filipinotown. Coming to market at $479,000 this two bedroom, 1 bath condo has a lot to offer, starting with a killer view.

Luckily, it’s just as gorgeous within. Large casement windows allow the sun to shine bright on an open bamboo-laden floor plan.

Right off the dining room is a cozy nook great for an office space so you can keep the second bedroom free for guests.1621 rockwood nook

The kitchen includes stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and plenty of cabinetry. The small breakfast bar area is great whether you’re enjoying morning cereal or entertaining guests before dinner.

The bamboo and bright lighting continue on into both bedrooms, each with mirrored closets.

2120 Avon Street

Front - 2120 Avon

How do you live like a king in Los Angeles? By living like the mayor of Los Angeles, of course! From artful Instagram snaps to curating KCRW guest DJ sets to educating you on El Niño sandbag locations, Eric Garcetti typifies the true Angeleno.

Now you can own his home.

Coming to market at a cool $1,650,000, the Garcetti-Wakeland Residence is a 3 bed, 2 bath post-and-beam in 1,900 interior sq. ft. and on over half an acre of land.

Entry

The 1953-year-built home was originally designed by Daniel L. Dworsky, FAIA with the most recent renovation by SCI-Arc alum Elissa Scrafano.

The sylvan home comes with all the mid-century trappings you’d expect — walls of glass, exposed rafters, linear everything — yet  manages to be sustainable and forward-thinking with its solar panels, terraced veggie garden, and tankless water heater.

Living Room

A double-sided fireplace anchors the living room and showcases natural light throughout the home.

Years before they lived in Silver Lake and a good decade before mayoral residency at the Getty House in Windsor Square, the Council District 13 president lived in Echo Park with his wife Amy.  The year was 2000, and the little neighborhood of Echo Park had not yet reached critical mass.
