Tucked away on a woodsy lot in the Elysian Heights neighborhood of Echo Park, this little one-bedroom home in Echo Park is a surprisingly rustic retreat minutes from Downtown LA.

The 800-square-foot residence was built in 1950 and features appropriately vintage-style lighting fixtures and a freestanding fireplace in the living room. Other features include hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and wood-paneled walls throughout the home.

Wide windows in the home’s living room bring in plenty of light, while a separate living space now being used as a guest bedroom opens up to a terraced garden and patio.

At the back of the 7,150-square-foot lot is a detached unit billed in the listing as an artist’s studio. Equipped with a fireplace of its own, along with a sliding door and a small outdoor deck, the separate structure looks pretty pleasant in its own right.

The tall home is situated over a two car garage and includes an adjoining deck set against a wall of vegetation.

Asking price is $650,000—a little over $800 per square foot, for those of you keeping score at home.
