With subtle splashes of color in all the right places, this shingled “treehouse” in Echo Park is a pastel delight. Its moldings and doors are painted blue and lavender, colors that carry through into the retro kitchen and two tiled bathrooms.
The tiny vertical cottage, built in 1926, has one bedroom and one bathroom on the main level, plus a downstairs bonus space with a separate entrance and bathroom that could be used as living quarters or an office. Making the most use of its limited space, there’s also a finished attic. Features include built-ins, hardwood floors, central AC, and a charming stepped-ceiling in the living room.
The property clocks in at 2,939 square feet and includes a terraced yard with patios and land for gardening. Located in the hills about a half-mile above Sunset Boulevard, it’s also steps to Elysian Park hiking trails.
