One of L.A.’s Only Surviving Bunker Hill Homes Lists in Angelino Heights

By Wendy Bowman

A vintage home from L.A.’s storied Bunker Hill — best known known for its Angel Flight funicular that connected the hilltop neighborhood to the greater downtown area below, as well as streets lined with striking Victorian residences — has popped up on the market, asking a speck under $3 million.

Though the neighborhood has been gone for more than 50 years, with most of the houses meeting the wrecking ball in the 1960s, making way for glitzy high-rises and art venues, a centuries-old survivor remains. But it’s since been relocated, not once but twice, and now resides in the historic Angelino Heights neighborhood.

Known as the “John Wesley Ellis Residence” — after the Presbyterian minister who commissioned architect William R. Norton to build the place way back in the early 1800s — the stick-style Victorian structure’s exterior is painted an olive hue, with the interiors boasting six bedrooms and four baths in just over 3,200 square feet of living space.
