"County Certified" Organic Farm in Echo Park Asking $625k

New, 15 comments


When last on the market, back in 2011, this Echo Park abode was looking tore up from the floor up and hurtin' for certain, its yard just a barren patch of dirt and cement. Previously a wreck of a duplex, the property has now come back to market under a new incarnation—that of a charming urban farm "built in 1898," complete with historical-sounding name: Hamilton House. Per the description, the two-story residence now features three bedrooms, one and a half baths, a formal dining room, a step-down office, a reading room, and an attic studio, while the 6,020-square-foot lot has been transformed into a "county certified farm with 23 trees (15 of them fruit-bearing), 5 raised bed vegetable gardens, a nursery patio, compost stations and more." The property's eco-friendly features include "gray water plumbing, rain harvesting systems, solar-powered ventilation, tankless water heater and drought-tolerant landscaping." Last sold for $222,000, it's now looking to reap a bumper-crop more, with an asking price of $625,000.
