Craftsman Fourplex with Historic Charm and an Inspirational Setting in Elysian Heights

Sponsored Post


One-of-a-kind Elysian Heights fourplex, home for almost 45 years to Los Angeles’ first woman City Council member– the socialist/feminist/journalist Estelle Lawton Lindsey. Built as a single-family home in 1907, the redwood residence is emblematic of its California Craftsman roots.

A new redwood fence and two entry gates at the street frame the secluded hilltop setting. Terraced front and back yards engage the sweeping views north to the San Gabriels and east to Mt Baldy. Much of the original wood detailing, paneling and flooring remains. One unit even retains handcrafted copper detailing on the floor, walls and built-in bookcases. The two-story building is comprised of three 1-bedroom units and one 2-bedroom unit, each with a unique floor plan, and has been an inspirational setting for writers, professors, dancers and other artists over the years.
