This revamped this 1920s Los Angeles compound in Echo Park’s Elysian Heights, marries heritage shades and original features with contemporary design and is shrouded by greenery.
Ome Dezin founders Jesse Rudolph and Joëlle Alexa Kütner renovated the LA property – which comprises three structures; the three-bedroom main home, a light-filled 188 sq ft studio space and a one-bedroom guesthouse – leaning heavily into the vibe created by its tranquil, hillside location, covered in tropical trees and plants.
‘Certain elements, like the fish pond in the front (which you can hear inside from the Dutch doors), the office in the back with its corner window and all the large cacti surrounding the property have withstood time,’ writes the duo. Newer elements are courtesy of local studio BC, which was chosen to lead its interiors and landscape design.
Interiors are bright and airy, with whitewashed walls offset by olive-green door trims and natural, taupe hues. Sand-coloured brick flooring runs underfoot across the main level, with white oak floors in the bedrooms, bespoke walnut cabinetry and built-ins.
Compass agents Robert Kallick and Justin Freeling have the listing for 1531 Cerro Gordo St, which is asking $2.395m.
Native plantings surround the property, with the rear yard including an outdoor kitchen, cedar sauna, outdoor shower and plenty of space for entertainment and gatherings.
