This past weekend, we visited three of the houses on Design East of La Brea's Echo Park House Tour (we'd already visited the Kevin Wronske-designed Dick and Jane houses last year). We've done our drive-by design judgments, now on to the architecture.Photos by Elizabeth Daniels
We first saw the tall, skinny Eel's Nest last summer, when architect/occupant Simon Storey listed it for $599,000. He's since decided he likes the place too much to part with it and now lives and runs his practice out of the three-story, 15 foot wide house. Altogether, the whole thing is only 960 square feet on a 780 square foot lot, but it gets a lot of light through its giant windows and skylights, and it's topped with a very pleasant roofdeck with massive Echo Park views.
