Ash Chan, owner and founder of the Arts District creative commune the Container Yard, has listed his bungalow in Echo Park for sale at $1.38 million.

Dating to 1916, the cream-hued house has been updated to reflect modern preferences for open-plan living.

A gated entrance at the front of the leafy yard opens to a walkway leading up to a covered front porch. Inside, light and airy living space includes a skylight-topped living room, a family room, a dining area and a chromed-out kitchen. There are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an office in 1,661 square feet of space.


French doors open from the back to a large patio space. The single-story house makes the most of its sloping, 7,486-square-foot lot with a trellis-topped dining area, mature trees and a zip line.

The one-car garage is currently used as a gym.

Chan, the son of billionaire investor Gerald Chan, founded the Container Yard five years ago. The cultural space has displayed the works of noted muralists and street artists, while attracting a range of creative events.

He bought the house a year ago for $1.4 million, records show.

Patricia Ruben of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
