Hill Drive home sold for $1.577 million

Eagle Rock

Hill Drive continued to reign as one of Eagle Rock’s priciest streets, with this six-bedroom, three-bath Spanish Colonial with a pool selling for $1.757 million. The December sale capped a year when nine Eagle Rock homes sold in excess of $1 million, according to Redfin. The most expensive home to sell in Eagle Rock this year – a $1. 8 million sale – was also located on Hill Drive. Will prices top $2 million next year or have Eagle Rock prices plateaued?

Elysian Valley

  • 2800 Denby Ave
  • Priced at $475,000

Echo Park

  • 1298 W. Sunset Blvd.
  • Priced at $499,000
  • Sold at $530,000
  • The fact that this newly constructed, contemporary-style home is located on a public stairway without direct street access  did not matter much to at least one buyer, who paid $31,000 over asking.

El Sereno

  • 2024 Marina Avenue
  • Priced at $110,000
  • Sold at $110,000
  • Don’t get too excited: This $110,000 sale was for a partially built, abandoned home with expired permits in the University Hills section of El Sereno.

Highland Park

  • 5820 Benner St. #306
  • Listed at $270,000

  1. The place in Atwater is actually in Frogtown/Elysian Valley.

  2. When it comes to California real estate there never is a plateau. I believe Eagle Rock housing prices will indeed continue to climb. Also, those in the know know that there are even prettier streets than Hill Drive in Eagle Rock…….
