Featured as the LA Times Home of the Week, this 834-square foot two-bedroom, one-bath condo in Lago Vista in Echo Park was designed in 1973 by Allyn E. Morris. For those unfamiliar with Morris, don't fret. He is one of the architects included in Alan Hess' "Forgotten Modern: California Houses 1940-1970." Morris was inspired by R.W. Schindler, and designed some of the more structurally innovative homes in LA, including a duplex on Silverwood Terrace, and the Bubeck House in Eagle Rock. This particular condo isn't exactly a new listing - it's been on the market for about three months now. Overlooking Echo Park Lake, the two-story condo features hardwood and travertine floors, Corian countertops, and a new range and dishwasher. The convex complex is divided into two structures, with a gated entrance and a teardrop-shaped pool. Last sold in 2001 for $145,000, this unit is now asking $399,000 or $478 per square foot. There are two other two-bedroom, one bath units currently for sale in the building one asking $439,000 and another at $379,000.
