In light of the paucity of new listings coming to market this time of year, we're casting our net wider and giving some attention to the not-so-new listings up for sale, such as this sun-dappled Craftsman on East Kensington Road in Echo Park. Originally built in 1903, the 1,474 square foot home features two bedrooms, one and a half baths, living room, dining room, quarter-sawn oak floors, transom windows, custom wood cabinetry, fruit trees, an outdoor kitchen, and a lovely heated pool. Updates include a tankless water heater, copper plumbing, and rebuilt fireplace and foundation. Listed back in September for $829,000, its asking price has since been snipped to $779,000.
