You may have read on The Eastsider LA last week that our beloved City Councilman Eric Garcetti (and possible mayoral candidate) has relocated his diggs from Echo Park to nearby Silver Lake. After a little bit of fun online banter, he told me on Twitter, “I only moved 10 blocks away. I’m still in the neighborhood and Echo Park will always be home.”
So why the move? While it was unclear at the time of the move announcement, Mitch O’Farrell told Echo Park residents at last week’s Echo Park Improvement Association town hall meeting that the new diggs offered more space.
But he’s left behind this gorgeous eco-friendly, 1950’s home that was featured in a Dwell magazine spread in 2008. The three bedroom, two bath, 2,000 square foot home, renovated by Garcetti and his wife, is complete with solar paneling, a tankless water heater, toxic-free/recycled materials, and incredible views of Elysian Heights.
And you can rent out this incredible home – but for a price tag. At $4,500 per month, this is rock star status for Echo Park.
