Built in 1950 by esteemed architect Fred F. Kreipl, the Buchanan Residence offers views of Elysian Park on one of the best streets in the Echo Park Hills. This Mid-century home is situated on a 9,965 square foot lot with ample outdoor space, including a custom geometric concrete patio and beautiful, generous interior spaces, all with sweeping windows.
Impeccably maintained, this 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath time capsule is on the market for the first time. The living room features a fireplace, hardwood floors and connects to the dining room. Full paneled glass french doors lead out to the patio.
Immaculately kept and unblemished, the small white kitchen offers numerous windows and could be enlarged to encompass the adjacent laundry/ mud room.
With 1,379 square feet all of the rooms in this home are ample in size. This bedroom features access to the deck:
An oceanliner-like deck above the trees and with spectacular city light views wraps around half of the house.
On the lower level this residence offers a separate guest suite complete with kitchenette, living area and full bathroom featuring an “ofuro” style soaking tub.
While this home is modest in scale, Kreipl makes great use of style and considerable design with curvilinear lines and Streamline Moderne references.
Flat green lawns, abutted by a large stone border and hedges combined with patios seen and accessed by nearly every room make this home great for entertaining.
With an ideal location, perched on the hillside with commanding panoramic views from the San Gabriels to the Pacific this property will surely be sought after by many.
