3 beds • 2 baths • 1,769 sqft
Hidden from the street behind an iconic fence is a unique paradise few could imagine existing in the middle of Echo Park. In 2004 the owners acquired this massive property - 3 parcels and over half an acre of land - and hired architect Rachel Allen to design their modernist dream home. The result is a home that nestles into the land, but once inside you are suspended in the trees. Walls of windows allow views and light from every direction, and the split-level design brilliantly maximizes every space. The home features 3BR, 2BA, a large kitchen, an open living and dining space & custom built-ins throughout. There are multiple outdoor areas directly off the house, but this is the rare large property where every square inch is usable. Pathways lead to seating areas, rock gardens and native plantings in a park like setting all shaded by towering leafy trees plus fruitful citrus and pomegranate. There is nothing else like this in Echo Park... and there may never be anything like it again.
