When this Angelino Heights Eastlake was erected, Grover Cleveland was wrapping up his first term as U.S. president, Jack the Ripper was terrorizing London, and cable cars were running between nearby Temple Street and the heart of downtown Los Angeles. Declared a Los Angeles historic-cultural monument in 1987, the 123-year-old Kellam Avenue home was for a time a bed and breakfast known as the Eastlake Inn, but in recent years reverted to being a private residence. The six-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath Mills Act property (which means lower property taxes) has been on and off the market since 2007. Listed in the early days of the Great Recession at $1.499 million, it's now asking $1.1 million.
