Adorable 1920s Cottage in Echo Park Asking $619,000

The two-bedroom bungalow features hardwood floors, French doors, and multiple decks and patios

Built in 1926, this clapboard-sided bungalow in Elysian Heights measures in at just 722 square feet. But the compact cottage certainly does its best to make the most of that space, dividing it up between two bedrooms, one and a half baths, kitchen, breakfast nook, living room, and office. Along with hardwood floors, built-in shelving, French doors, and casement windows, it also features a front deck with treetop views, a terraced back yard with planter boxes and drip irrigation, and, per the listing, "plentiful other little areas to unwind and escape." The fact that the property is sited on one of the neighborhood walk streets will undoubtedly contribute to the feeling that one has earned the right to relax in one of those "plentiful areas." Last sold in 2014 for $512,000, it's now asking $619,000. Open houses are scheduled for Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24 between 1 and 4 p.m.
