Some may challenge the sales listing describing this nearly century-old Angeleno Heights duplex as being built in the Craftsman style. But the Redfin real estate listing is certainly dead on when it calls the building a “fixer.” The nearly 2,000-square foot duplex at 917 East Edgeware Road has an imposing presence as it looms above the street with two-story high columns. But the wood-sided exterior obviously needs some help and perhaps more remodeling and renovations are needed inside. The property needs “new paint” and a “savvy investor,” said the Redfin listing. The duplex-each unit has two bedrooms-went on the market this week at $459,000.
In contrast, in 1941, the same property could have been yours for $50 down and $40 a-month, according to an L.A. Times classified.
