There are two ways to get to a newly listed, four-bedroom house in the Fellowship Park section of Elysian Heights: One is down a footpath that changes from brick to gravel to dirt as it descends down a steep hill; the other is a short drive on Fellowship Parkway, a winding road so narrow that an SUV would have trouble squeezing through. But it’s that sense of seclusion on a wooded hillside that has drawn people to Fellowship Park for the past century, including Rev. Benjamin Fay Mills, founder of the Los Angeles Fellowship, a man historian Carey McWilliams said helped bring the metaphysical movement to the city. It’s not clear what Mills paid in the early years of the 20th Century when he purchased the hillside that became known as Fellowship Park. But, today, joining that fellowship of property owners has become quite pricey. The asking price for that nearly 3,000-square foot home on Fellowship Parkway is $829,000.
