A few blocks west of Echo Park Lake, hidden behind a combination of hedges and a white picket fence, you’ll find this jaunty Folk Victorian cottage that has been around since 1900.
Like the surrounding neighborhood, the two-story home has seen a number of changes over the past century-plus, yet still retains plenty of ye olde charm.
Throwback features include hardwood floors, crown moldings, ornate windows, a decorative fireplace, clawfoot tub, vintage stove, and period light fixtures, while its 21st-century elements include central HVAC, ceiling fans, stainless steel appliances, and an alarm system.
Sitting on a 4,172-square-foot lot, the cottage has four bedrooms, two baths, living room, dining room, kitchen, basement with laundry area, and a one-car garage.
In addition to a semi-enclosed sitting porch with casement windows, its exterior spaces include a pergola-covered dining nook and a tree-shaded area with fire pit.
The property is listed with an asking price of $899,000, and open house will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. next weekend.
