This 1922 cottage in Echo Park offers some of the secluded, off-the-street charm of living on a walk street without the limited access. Set back from the street and sitting at the end of a long driveway, the property is also right next to one of the neighborhood’s many public staircases.
The one-bedroom house is petite, measuring just 600 square feet, but hardwood floors throughout give the residence a spaciousness. Plus, a small yard runs alongside the house, with a built-in bench, planting bed, and room for entertaining on a nice wooden deck.
The galley-style kitchen has fancy countertops and plenty of light, and there’s room in the area for a stackable washer and dryer. The single bedroom holds an ample closet and an en-suite full bathroom.
Public records show the home last sold in 2009 for $335,000. It’s now listed for $599,000.
