865 E. Kensington Road

Here is a rare opportunity to own a corner-lot property in a coveted Echo Park enclave, home to some of the oldest residences in LA. Built in 1901, the home is rumored to be the work of Arthur B. Benton, who designed the Mission Inn in Riverside and several notable houses in this neighborhood. Its architectural highlights include unique dormers, narrow-plank wood siding and fine exterior detailing. Inside, many original elements have been preserved or meticulously restored alongside period-inspired modern updates and improved systems.

Enter the home from its welcoming front porch. You will appreciate the care that it has been given, evident in the formal entryway with a gorgeous staircase and hand-crafted balustrade. Quality exposed woodwork is found throughout including flooring, windows, walls, doors, archways and built-ins. There are formal living and dining rooms, a powder room and also a parlor, which will make a great den, library or media room. The large, updated kitchen features stone countertops, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast nook.

Upstairs find three bedrooms, including a spacious Master Suite. Two full bathrooms are beautifully appointed with wood and tile, and in one there is a clawfoot tub. Outside is a flat yard with a patio and mature landscaping. Among system updates are foundation, plumbing, electrical, heating and air conditioning. The home sits in a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone and is Mills Act designated, providing significant property tax savings. The ideal location puts you at the doorstep of Downtown LA with Echo Park Lake, Lassen’s Market, Ostrich Farm, Blue Bottle Coffee and public transportation within easy reach.
