Name: 1908 Walcott Way
Location: Echo Park, California
Size: 888 square feet

Here's a pint sized 1950's built home that resides almost smack dab in-between our own hood of Silver Lake and Echo Park. The 888 square feet midcentury home (that triple 8 is especially auspicious) is on sale, and thus the owners shared these stylish photos which we've spent a good deal daydreaming about...

Here's the listing of the handsome and well staged hillside home:

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, plus a bonus studio with an additional full bathroom. The kitchen & bathrooms have been tastefully updated w/quality finishes from Ceasarstone, Hans Grohe, Kohler, Duravit, Walker Zanger & more. The landscaping professionally designed by Big Red Sun. Many improvements & its private, serene setting make this home a treat to be in and own.



Check out the cute swing underneath the deck and a view to die for from up above. We'd argue the outdoor areas are the best aspects of the home, an extension of livable space that expands outward from the modest interior.

The home office is certainly eyecatching, but maybe a bit…overwhelming (although dramatic when shown together with the red-pink hallway in view); the shelving framing the large paned window is a favorite feature, yet again taking advantage of the views as an extension of perceived space. There's so much colour and light within, thanks to the hillside location, windows and interior colours, the small space doesn't seem so small. We hope someone out there reading AT nabs it (or that we win the lottery immediately so we can snatch it ourselves).
