Home of the Day: Angelino Heights original retains its classic Victorian style


A steeply pitched, gabled roof and a wide front porch lend a classic look to this Victorian-style home in the Angelino Heights district of Echo Park. Built in 1901, the vintage of the home, rumored to be the work of Arthur B. Benton, is evidenced in its detailed woodwork, hardware and decorative ceilings. A kitchen with stone countertops and a breakfast nook are among updates to the home.
