4401 Bowman

Surprisingly, there are native Angelenos who have never been to El Sereno. The quaint neighborhood, bordered by Lincoln Heights to the south and Highland Park to the north, even has its own park (Ascot Hills Park) with skyline views downtown,  rolling hillsides, and hiking trails.

Let me introduce 4401 Bowman Blvd., a serene 1940s bungalow in its namesake, El Sereno. The corner lot home, in 3 bedrooms and 1 bath, exemplifies quintessential Eastside living.

Enjoy tranquil evenings and mountain views from the front deck or bask in year-round barbeques from the backyard, replete with mock grass and herb planters.

Indoors, a light-filled living room, framed by a large picture window, adjoins a curved archway to the dining room, perfect for entertaining.

Modern amenities include a cottage-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a garden window, upgraded electrical, hardwood floors, bolted foundation,and ductless A/C.

A fully fenced and gated driveway leads to a 2-car garage – perfect as a home office/studio — to complete your urban oasis.

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.

1336 Douglas Roof

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.



The two guest bedrooms are both airy with one featuring a dual sink and shower while the other has a single sink with bathtub.

There is a lot of home available here.

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.
