You Can Scoop Up a Pair of Vintage Cottages in L.A. for $1.1M

A bohemian oasis is now up for grabs in the middle of L.A. Nestled in the trendy enclave of Echo Park, the bucolic, 6,428-square-foot lot comprises a pair of one-bedroom bungalows, each dating back to the 1920s.

Tucked away in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, 1623 Landa Street contains two, century-old bungalows. Here is a look at the living spaces inside one of the two homes.  

Recently updated, both cottages blend historic and modern details: open floor plans feature original beams and wood elements; picture windows frame views of treetops and mountains; covered patios and decks create intimate connections to nature.

The bright kitchen includes all new appliances, a large, central island, and custom cabinetry.

The compound is conveniently located near a number of local favorite hotspots, including Mohawk Bend and the Echo Park Farmer’s Market. Hiking and biking trails are also within easy reach, making the lot an ideal fit as rental properties as well. Scroll ahead to more of each cottage and the entire property, all of which is currently listed for $1,125,000.

Folding doors and casement windows open up to the outside and an expansive deck overlooking the treetops.

The large deck is surrounded by a lush canopy of trees.

Exposed rafters continue into the bedroom, which also features batten-and-board siding.

Two windows invite natural light into the pebble-stone bathroom.

A peek into the second cottage reveals many of the same features. Uniquely, this structure also offers a ‘bonus area’ and second bathroom on the lower level.

A smaller kitchen sits just behind the living room, as does an office space tucked in the corner.

The light-filled bedroom in this cottage also features batten-and-board siding.

Green-painted hardwoods add a playful pop of color in the bathroom, which also offers a clawfoot bathtub.

A original sink sits snug in the corner.

Box-beamed ceilings top the bonus area, reached by a spiral staircase from the living area.

The bonus area opens onto a shaded patio underneath the deck.  

Measuring 6,428 square feet, the tree-encompassed lot presents a rare city sanctuary.
