The lush hillside setting provides wondrous views of the mountains, Downtown Los Angeles, and the ocean. The beautiful three-story Spanish-style abode was built in 1923 as the Echo Park hills were just beginning to be developed.

Inside, you will be utterly impressed by the bright living spaces, including this living room that boasts a Batchelder fireplace, hardwood floors, gorgeous built-ins, and stylish casement windows.

The spacious dining room has a lovely little built-in bar in one corner. They certainly don’t make them like this anymore…

The kitchen has lovely faux limed oak with glass cabinets that match the period plus a garden window above the sink.

The master suites has amazing views of the mountains.

And a separate sunroom and sitting area with walls of windows on every side.

Two more bedrooms in the main house complete the home.

The view from the top floor of the gardens below is charming.

The downstairs apartment features plenty of closet space.

And a stylish vintage kitchen.

The outdoor areas only grow more charming. For lovers of Spanish-style architecture in Los Angeles, 1831 Cerro Gordo is a true find, a great example of the design.

Multiple patios, decks, and entertaining areas, plus mature citrus, avocado, and oak trees dot the property.

The grounds offer plenty of space to explore, including a stone amphitheater that was once used by the Sierra Club to put on lectures.

The home is unseen from the street, up a long driveway, and has just one neighbor on only one side. All of it combines to create the ultimate private retreat in Echo Park.

Just fifteen minutes from DTLA and just a stone’s throw from the shops and restaurants of Echo Park, the LA River Bike Path, Dodger Stadium, and Elysian Park, 1831 Cerro Gordo is an incredible opportunity to own a classic Bohemian chic estate in Elysian Heights. And, speaking of Dodger Stadium, imagine taking in the fireworks from this vantage point.
