GLASSELL PARK – Glassell Park’s real estate market is heating up – new townhomes at NELA Union are attracting buyers in search of contemporary style, new restaurants are attracting foodies, and its position near Echo Park, Eagle Rock, and Highland Park makes the neighborhood an appealing locale for those seeking a halo effect on home equity. This month, the neighborhood saw the first single-family home sell for $1 million.
Homes in Glassell Park may not be inexpensive but the neighborhood does offer more bang for your buck than adjacent communities. We take a look at what $550,000 can buy.
As long as you don’t mind a view of the freeway, this recently remodeled home offers tasteful updates, three bedrooms and a large outdoor space.
No doubt some TLC is needed to bring this 1922 home into the 2010s. But at over 2,000 square-feet and four bedrooms, this home offers ample space for a growing family.
The split floor plan and private downstairs studio in this home could make it an ideal income property. Are you willing to make a bet on its view of Mt. Washington and this neighborhood on the rise?
