The Elysian Heights home at 1864 Lemoyne was but a plywood overhang diamond-in-the-rough before it was transformed into hipster gold by development firm Re-Inhabit.  The home has steadily made its way on the Interwebs (oh CurbedLA, how I admire thee for invoking Zeus’ beard in your post), and for good reason.

Just shy of 1,600 square feet, the 3 bedroom 2 bath home is quite the stunner at $849,000 and will surely break a sales record, price-per-square-foot, for that little pocket of Echo Park.

The open living room still showcases the home’s original wood floors, tying in the space with the now fluid kitchen.

My favorite part of the home happens to be the kitchen, where salvaged wood was transformed to make way for an island.  A deck was also added for outdoor dining and entertaining.

The footprint of the home was once a 2+1 hillside bungalow in 900 square feet before the artists and builders added rooms and made use of re-purposed materials during the year-long renovation.

The firm’s marketing contact Nicole Paulus summed up the development firm’s mission: “… to integrate mature homes back into the current market while incorporating forward leaning functionality for the modern family.

We are dedicated to breathing life back into dilapidated structures while keeping the integrity of the original foundation in tact.  We restore, you inhabit.”

Well-said, considering the amount of time and labor spent on the home.  If the new homeowner chooses, they could also enjoy the view from the beautifully terraced yard.
