Buying a Piece of History
For $1.495 million, you can purchase 0.31 acres of land boasting two historic structures built in 1907. Offering 2,767 square feet of living space, the 3-bedroom, 2- bathroom home is considered to be the best example of a Victorian-era carriage house remaining in the city of Los Angeles. Therefore, the property maintains true to its historic roots while also offering contemporary amenities.
The Craftsman home located on the property boasts an open floor plan with a large formal living room and dining room. The home also features a gourmet chef’s kitchen with a professional cooktop, while the master suite offers a spa-like bath. The backyard of the property has also undergone extensive professional landscaping upgrades, which includes the addition of a swimming pool and new decks.
Enjoying the Angelino Heights Lifestyle
Angelino Heights is located within a small quarter in the Echo Park district of Los Angeles, bordered by Westlake to the south, Echo Park proper to the northwest and Elysian park to the northeast. The official boundaries of the community are Echo Park Avenue to the west, Hollywood Freeway to the south and Sunset Boulevard to the north and east.
Situated at an elevation of 502 feet and characterized by steep hills, the Angelino Heights community is known for its Victorian era homes, though there are not many examples of this form of architecture located in the community. Eastlake and Queen Anne styles are the most common Victorian-style homes situated in the community, though it also features Art Deco, Bungalow, Colonial Revival, Craftsman and Mission Revival-style homes. Two of the homes located in the community have been used for the television shows Charmed and Journeyman. The picturesque community has also been used at the backdrop for many movies.
Founded in 1886, Angelino Heights is the second oldest district in Los Angeles and the first recognized historic district. The community was originally founded to form a connection to the downtown mainline by the Temple Street Cable Railway. Today, the district is a protected Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, which means new construction must resemble original construction and unsympathetic remodeling is not permitted.
Due to the convenient location of the Angelino Heights community, the property provides easy access to downtown, Hollywood and other local sites and attractions.
