If cool things come in neat packages, the artistic fence and aqua stairs are the first clues that this Echo Park home is something special. Behind the walls and natural plantings lies a dwelling that embraces modernist sensibilities. An unexpected bonus is that the house sits on more than half an acre — low to the ground in front and taking in treetop views out back. Pathways lead to multiple seating areas and rock gardens.
