Tucked into the hills of Elysian Heights, the neighborhood north of Echo Park and south of the the 5 freeway, sits this small, shingled bungalow set “among the trees.”
Coming in at 1,020 square feet, the sunny dwelling holds two bedrooms and two bathrooms in an unusual layout. But to make up for that, it offers a lovely spread of outdoor space, including two decks along with a “terraced front yard with abundant agave.” (The second bedroom offers a direct connection to the yard via French doors.)
The home was built in 1921, but has been updated, most noticeably in the kitchen and bathrooms, and it features some charming elements: pitched ceilings, wood floors, clapboard walls, and a fireplace.
Last sold just two years ago for $604,000, it’s now on the market for $799,000.
