Despite what the sales listing for this four-bedroom house says, the property is not in the “heart of Silver Lake.” Instead, the nearly century-old, heavily remodeled home is located in Echo Park on Alvarado Street across from the Echo Park Vons and, on many evenings, the Taco Zone Truck, one of the neighborhood’s most popular food trucks (4-1/2 Yelp stars). While the listing on Redfin plays up the new home’s granite countertops and new wood floors, no mention is made of the fact that the new owners can satisfy a late-night craving for carnitas or lengua tacos by simply walking across the street to Taco Zone. The house flip, which sold for $312,000 in early April, is now on the market for $569,000.
