Even the stuffiest, most discerning observer cannot possibly resist internally exclaiming "Groovy baby!" in the best/worst Austin Powers accent upon sight of this incredible house. Decorated like a scoop of rainbow sherbet or a set from Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, this exciting three-bedroom residence is settled into the hills of Echo Park along the 2 Freeway and is jam-packed with period details like shag carpet, formica counters, a vintage stove, and of course that vivid color scheme. The fun continues in the vibrant master bedroom, which has a walk-in closet and a balcony; one of the bedrooms has a little loft accessible by a ladder! There's even a not-so-secret rooftop deck with a hot tub. Unlike many time capsule houses, this one's been updated, and has a new roof, electrical system, water heater, drought-tolerant landscaping, and energy-efficient HVAC, plus two of the two-and-a-half bathrooms have been fully renovated. The asking price is $749,000.
