The description for this lovely new listing in the hills of Echo Park notes that it was "featured in 'Los Angeles Homes,'" which is a tad misleading--it's actually in the book Los Angeles Houses--not to mention modest, as it's also appeared in Metropolitan Home, Food & Wine, and Casa, among other publications. Built in 1948 by engineer Austin Ayers, the International-modern style residence owes its many press clippings to the fact that it was owned and restored by Alexandra and Eliot Angle, the husband-and-wife team behind the interior design firm Aqua Vitae, before being sold to its current owners. Sited on a 9,973-square-foot lot adjacent to Elysian Park, the two-story house features two bedrooms; one and a half baths; an office/sunroom; wood-burning fireplace; concrete, slate, and bamboo floors; industrial-style windows, a trapezoidal swimming pool; and attached two-car garage. Last sold in 2004 for $1.079 million, it's now asking $1.399 million.
