Post-fire remodel strips historic charm from Echo Park house

This 1905 Echo Park bungalow on Sutherland Street up the hill from the Short Stop bar was heavily damaged by a fire in January of last year that sent its occupants, including music promoter Sean Carlson of FYF Fest fame, fleeing for their lives. Now, after an extensive repair job, the two-bedroom home is up for sale with what looks like an all new interior. However, some of nearly century-old home’s historic features, including the clapboard siding and wood windows, were  not replaced.  Instead, there is grey stucco, vinyl windows and just a hint of a bay window. The terse real estate listing reads:

THERE IS NO PARKING GARAGE, the home sits on a slope with a small backyard, it has a view of City Lights. There are some cracks on the concrete stairs leading to the property.

All this – minus the historic charm – can be yours for $280,000, according to Redfin.
