“Nestled under the canopy of a native oak” in Echo Park, you’ll find this two-bedroom home built in 1914. Clad in wood shingle siding and wrapped in a porch that spills onto a wood deck, it gives off cozy cabin vibes.

But it’s not totally isolated from urban-living. Given that it’s located near where the 2 and 5 freeways meet, on the border of Elysian Valley, you might have to contend with the annoying hum of traffic. If so, drown out the noise by getting lost gazing into the beauty that is all of the original wood paneling.

If you want a break from all of that wood (why??) slide into the kitchen, which is dressed in black and white.

Other charming features include a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace, built-ins, and a clawfoot tub. The property is listed for just shy of $1 million at $998,000.
