Much-Published Mid-Century by Austin Ayers Near Elysian Park

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.
