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.


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.

Outdoors, you can enjoy the sounds of a simple fountain, those sweeping canyon views, and contemplate the following:

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.
