How much are you willing to pay for an Echo Park landmark?

The residences around Echo Park Lake tend to be modest homes or hillside bungalow courts.  So, that’s why an imposing Spanish-Colonial home with a large lawn that spills down to Glendale Boulevard near Santa Ynez Street has always stood out,  looking as if a bit of Los Feliz had landed across the street from Echo Park Lake.  The nearly 3,000-square-foot home, a city historic landmark, was built in 1938 for a pastor of nearby Angelus Temple. The home was only sold once, in 1962, and now it’s on the market again as a trust sale. The interior features some of the original carved wood ceiling beams, tile and light fixture (don’t miss the bathroom tile). It’s being sold “as-is” at an asking price of $1.1 million, according to the listing.That would be a steal in Los Feliz but will that price tag find a buyer in Echo Park on busy Glendale Boulevard?

  1. Will there be a Open House on this property?

  2. I sure to hope so. I will become a lookie loo for once In my life.

  3. I was hoping for a bathroom to rival that in Sister Aimee’s Parsonage across the park (photo link below), but despite the lavender fixtures, this is a very masculine house.

  4. that would be a great spot for a restaurant after the lake is complete!

  5. Wow ed, that is a wonderful idea!

  6. Property taxes will be low.

  7. The owners are picking a perfect time to sell, just as the lake is being shut down and the stench from the cleaning will be swirling around the area for the next year! I wonder if those facts are in the disclosure info?

  8. “The owners are picking a perfect time to sell, just as the lake is being shut down and the stench from the cleaning will be swirling around the area for the next year! I wonder if those facts are in the disclosure info?”

    As the property is in trust and hasn’t been on the market in close to 50 years I’m hazarding a guess that the owners are no longer living.

  9. I hope somebody buys it who isn’t affiliated with the other major property owners in the neighborhood, if you know what I mean. Keep it secular.

  10. I’ve always wondered about that place. Too bad it’s so close to the freeway that Glendale Blvd has become.

  11. A Million Pesos!

  12. Yeah, and one time I saw this crazy homeless lady hacking roses off their rosebush, and tearing a plant right out of the ground!
    I had to laugh, thinking what a nasty surprise when the owner got home.
    For 1.1 million there are better areas to buy in……especially if you have kids.
    Too many wackos spilling over from the park, and people driving 100 mph on Glendale.
