Revisiting: Sun Drenched Echo Park Bungalow
02 Monday Jul 2012
Every now and then, a near perfect home languishes on the market for no logical reason. Case in point is this 1916 California Bungalow in Echo Park. After a failed escrow and 94 days on the market, it’s in real estate purgatory where buyers and agents alike believe the house has a defect.
However, this can’t be further from the truth. I have no other word for this home other than enchanting. Set on Alvarado hill, high above busy Alvarado St., this house is a secluded hideaway that’s minutes from the 2, Sunset Junction and Silver Lake, but feels worlds away.
Perched on a knoll, it sits amid lush landscaping and a crown of bouganvilla. Features include glorious views, sun drenched rooms, original wood floors, built-ins, latched windows, a 2-car garage and the pièce de résistance: a double wide deck and multi-terraced yard. With a recent $30k reduction, it’s sure fire up interest. For more information, let me know.
