The mid-century home at 2145 Park Drive is distinctive not only for sweeping city views and a bathtub in the master bedroom but for being one of those rare Echo Park houses that have sold for more than $1 million. That was back in 2004 during the last real estate boom/bubble when the approximately 1,700-square-foot home in the Elysian Heights section of Echo Park sold for $1.079 million.
Now, the current owners have put the hillside home with a pool on the market and are seeking to top the previous sale price by asking $1.399 million, according to Redfin. Says the listing description:
This 1946 Austin Ayers Architectural Home utilizes clean lines, glass, metallic profiles and brick with gorgeous views of the canyon serving as a backdrop. This 2 bedroom 1.5 bath beauty boasts polished cement, slate and bamboo floors. Glamorous porcelain tub in Master Bedroom and stunning pool.
Only about a half dozen single-family homes in Echo Park, as well as Angeleno Heights and Elysian Heights, have sold for more than $1 million in about the last decade, with the most expensive house, a four-bedroom, hilltop property on Alvarado Street, selling for $1.27 million in 2007, according to Redfin.
