Mayor Eric Garcetti lists Echo Park post-and-beam for $1.65 million
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and his wife, Amy Wakeland, have put their Midcentury Modern-style home in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles on the market for $1.65 million.
Designed by Daniel L. Dworsky and since renovated by Scrafano Architects, the 1953 post-and-beam sits on about half an acre and has views of the city, canyon and surrounding valley.
The open-area floorplan, with polished concrete floors and walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, includes an updated kitchen and breakfast bar, a dining area, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. A two-sided fireplace divides the living room.
Terraced vegetable gardens, an orchard, multiple patios and an outdoor dining area make up the grounds. A two-vehicle carport sits below the house.
Garcetti and Wakeland bought the house in 2000 for $345,000, public records show.
Last year, the couple sold a home in Silver Lake to Anthony Gonzalez of the electronic music band M83 for $1.9 million.
They currently reside in Windsor Square at the Getty House, the official residence for the mayor of L.A.
Jacqueline Tager of Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
Garcetti, 44, took office in the summer of 2013, becoming L.A.’s 42nd mayor. He previously served as president of the Los Angeles City Council from 2006 to 2012.
