Cinematographer Arthur To buys a renovated Craftsman in Echo Park

Cinematographer Arthur To, who worked on the Oscar-winning film “The Revenant,” has purchased a home in Echo Park for $1.46 million.

The renovated Craftsman, built in 1919, sits up from the street on a sloping lot and has steps leading up to a covered front porch.

Remade in a more contemporary style, the approximately 2,400 square feet of interiors feature neutral tones, wide-plank wood floors and a living room with a fireplace and an artful paneled hearth.

A chef’s kitchen has pendant lighting, stainless steel appliances and a T-shaped island/breakfast plan. A dining area sits off the living room.

The master suite has skylights, a sitting room and French doors that open to an enclosed balcony. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in all.

Outdoors, a staircase leads down to a lawn and wood deck. There’s also a two-car garage.

The house sold two years ago for $640,000, public records show.

Paul Stukin of John Aaroe Group was the listing agent. Omar Cruz of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage represented the buyer.

To, 28, was a digital imaging technician for “The Revenant,” which won three Academy Awards including the Oscar for cinematography. His other film credits include “End of Watch” (2012), “Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 1” (2014) and “Furious 7” (2015).
