Built in 1911 – and since then completely updated by famed designer (and current owner) Leanne Ford, this fantastic Elysian Heights cabin offers a perfect blend of yesterday and today. With more than 1,200 square feet of interior living space, the home has two bedrooms and one bath – but the high ceilings and light colors throughout offer a bright and much roomier feel.
Reported as the first home built in the Echo Park locale, the property spans more than 8,400 square feet, and provides a private, woodsy setting. The restored wood floors offer the home the ideal rustic appearance, accompanied by a fantastic Midcentury Malm living room fireplace and surrounding stone hearth.
A part of its recent renovation included a new Smeg refrigerator and stainless steel kitchen appliances, as well as stunning onyx countertops. French doors lead out to a wooden back deck that overlooks mature trees and offers an ideal space for morning coffee. In fact, for those who love spending time in nature, this home essentially ties the outdoors with the indoors, in a beautifully seamless fashion.
Located at 2317 Avon Street, this one-of-a-kind find is currently listed for sale at $995,000. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
