The residences around Echo Park Lake tend to be modest homes or hillside bungalow courts. So, that’s why an imposing Spanish-Colonial home with a large lawn that spills down to Glendale Boulevard near Santa Ynez Street has always stood out, looking as if a bit of Los Feliz had landed across the street from Echo Park Lake. The nearly 3,000-square-foot home, a city historic landmark, was built in 1938 for a pastor of nearby Angelus Temple. The home was only sold once, in 1962, and now it’s on the market again as a trust sale. The interior features some of the original carved wood ceiling beams, tile and light fixture (don’t miss the bathroom tile). It’s being sold “as-is” at an asking price of $1.1 million, according to the listing.That would be a steal in Los Feliz but will that price tag find a buyer in Echo Park on busy Glendale Boulevard?
