We work with clients in the surrounding communities in Downtown. We specialize in Mount Washington, Highland Park, Boyle Heights, Lincoln Heights, etc.
I have two houses in escrow right now on the boards of Downtown. The other thing you wan to think about is that condos are designed with the idea of community. There are restaurants, common areas, and various amenities that make it better than living in a house. No yard work, sharing the expenses of property maintenance and depreciation of the property or building. Though I am personally tempted to jump from Downtown and land in a house, I keep coming back to the conclusions that Downtown is perfect for me. Also, with the new schools, it's getting better for families.

As with everything in real estate, it depends on how much you want to spend. In the immediate downtown area, 2-3BR homes are available, but prob not what you're looking for in terms of "walk-able neighborhoods." If you can go a bit further west there's Echo Park & Silver Lake with the trendy shops and restaurants and mid to upper priced homes....about 20" to downtown. A little further west is beautiful Hancock Park with charming Larchmont Village area shops and restaurants...but the homes tend to be quite pricey. If you can go a bit north of downtown I've had great luck finding affordable family homes, particularly in Eagle Rock, Mt. Washington, Highland Park (straight up the 110, half way to Pasadena, about 20" from downtown) that are nearby shops/restaurants. And then, even further north is Pasadena where there are some very "walk-able" areas. Usually you will pay a premium to be close to a walk-able area.
Let me know if you are looking for a Buyer's Agent to assist you in your search. Best of luck!

Please feel free to call if you need help finding the Right Home at the Right Price.
Feel free to visit my website and sign up for my home scouting service, which includes neighborhood information.
Downtown is filled mostly with lofts, high-rises and converted warehouse condos. Great surrounding neighborhoods such as Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Atwater Village and Mt Washington have beautiful family homes and are within walking distance to their own local shops and restaurants.
Please contact me directly if I can be of any further assistance to you.
