The garage sale should be interesting. More images, and much better quality (higher resolution and better color than I could grab) at the realtor’s dedicated site. Hancock Park is one of Los Angeles’ prettiest neighborhoods, laid out in the 1920’s and full of handsome, eclectic houses by noted architects.
