Sponsored Post: New from Better Shelter, a modern cottage in Highland Park open Sunday

Real estate agent Courtney Poulos invites you to this Sunday’s open house from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

New from the Better Shelter renovation team: a dramatically re-envisioned entertainer’s home in Highland Park at the base of Mount Washington boasts tons of sunshine, central air, new, dark hardwood floors, vintage lighting fixtures and good vibes throughout. This 3BR/2BA home, listed at $429,000 is all about details!

Built in 1954, 880 El Paso Drive, Los Angeles 90042 offers a large living/dining space, which opens to a renovated kitchen with butcher block counters, apron sink, new Frigidaire built-in microwave, dishwasher, and gas range and ample cabinet storage. The washer/dryer hookup is conveniently located in the hall.

The huge master bedroom features an ensuite bath and deep walk-in closet with recessed lighting. The second bedroom is gracious and bright, and offers two hanging racks in the closet. The third room is perfect for a home office. Both bathrooms have stained glass windows and vintage fixtures.

The master bedroom’s French doors open to a spacious wood deck—perfect for entertaining, plus an unpaved space for an urban vegetable garden. The renovated carport provides covered parking for two plus there is plenty of space for additional cars, trucks or a trailer!

Better Shelter has taken care to include eco-friendly features like drought-tolerant landscaping, low-flow, dual flush toilets, recycled windows, and energy-efficient appliances. With a private, gated front yard and gated parking, 880 El Paso’s approximate 5183 sq ft lot size offers privacy and security.

Fresh & Easy, Cafe de Leche, Auntie Em’s and The York are a quick drive or a nice walk. Eagle Rock, downtown, Silver Lake, Echo Park, and Pasadena are super close and the 110, 134 and 2 freeways are minutes away!

  1. All that—-and no apparent wheelchair accessibility. Have these people never heard of Universal Design?

  2. Wow. Talking about turning a sow’s ear into a silk purse. Good job and good luck Courtney.

  3. Thanks, Nimby!

    Sue, the sellers would happily install a ramp if the new buyer wants it!
