This impressive two-story Mediterranean residence on the border of Echo Park and Silver Lake is certainly unique for the area, with a regal look that sets it very much apart from the humble bungalows on its block.

Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument number 971, the 2,564-square-foot home was constructed in 1927 by Italian-born mechanic Innocenti Palombo. According to the home’s application for landmark status, Palombo based its design on a palace located in his hometown of Vicalvi, in central Italy.
