BOYLE HEIGHTS —  Last month’s $450,000 sale of a restored Victorian on Fourth Street was the most expensive sale of a single-family home in Boyle Heights during the past three years, according to Redfin. Now,  the owners of a Boyle Heights Craftsman are seeking to top that sales price by asking $469,000.

The four-bedroom, Airplane-style bungalow in the 500 block of Brittania Street comes with a wrap-around porch, wood floors, built in cabinets, original windows and a remodeled kitchen, according to the Redfin listing.   Will this earth-toned, 99-year-old Boyle Heights Craftsman top the sales price of the colorful 118-year-old Victorian? Stay tuned.


  1. AMAZING house. But holy moly is that close to where the 10 and the 5 meet!! I would want an anti-pollution bubble built over the property in order to live a healthy normal life there.

  2. We just bought a house in Boyle Heights up near USC Medical Center and love it. Have to say we love the fact that we are near the 5, 10, 101. All roads lead to Boyle Heights. I get asthma, but have not felt any negative effects from the freeways that people seem to be worried about. For the price we got our home, have to say this was probably the smartest move we’ve made in our lives!

  3. Looks like the house is pending, after less than 1 month on the market.

  4. My husband and I have owned and lived in a 1905 craftman house in the Hollenbeck tract for the past 23 years. We both work in DTLA and have a ridiculously short commute. While friends and family have tried to talk us into moving out we’ve stood firm in our belief that it doesn’t get better than Boyle Heights. Lots of hard working folks that unfortunately can’t shake off the “bad neighborhood” stigma that has plagued us for too long. I see many changes taking place and I’m more excited than ever to be living in Boyle Heights. Our house would easily sell for $600K if it were in Pasadena but then again, who else has an 8 minute drive to work?
