Description
Welcome to a spectacular luxury home nestled in a lush hillside garden with breathtaking views in Americas hippest neighborhood, Silver Lake. This 3/4 acre property is a true piece of paradise, an oasis in the middle of this great city. The spacious house is bright and breezy and the grounds are a tiered garden of Eden filled with flowers and fruit trees and patios and decks and a spa, all featuring wonderful views of the lake and Hollywood Hills beyond (featuring the Hollywood sign and Griffith Park Observatory). The classic LA view! The home is set way back off the street. It is multileveled and offers modern open plan living, with large windows everywhere displaying the spectacular views throughout. At either end of the house there are two master Bedroom suites with full bathrooms and queen sized beds. One is nestled in the garden, a Utopian setting with a door leading directly into the lush greenery. The other has vaulted ceilings and a large picture window featuring that gorgeous view again, with a door leading out onto a large deck. It will be tough to decide which bedroom to enjoy first. Originally the house was a classic California bungalow from the 1920s. It has been tastefully expanded and updated with all of the luxuries of modern living. The living room features a wall of bi-folding glass doors which create a 16 ft opening to a 500 sq.ft. deck, a spectacular perch from which to enjoy the dramatic sunsets across the lake. The eat-in kitchen is state of the art, a real cooks delight with everything you will need, brand new appliances and striking black granite countertops. It also features a charming banquette, surrounded by windows, nestled in the garden and bathed in light from the three overhead skylights. One of the master bedrooms has a bonus room for an office and dressing room and its bathroom features a whirlpool tub with garden view. But you are probably not going to need it, the outdoor spa is just up the hillside in the back yard. It is situated high on a promontory with an expansive view framed by fruit trees and palms, a truly idyllic spot. The unfortunate thing about this house is you are probably here to see Los Angeles, but you will not want to leave the property. Other amenities include a majestic stone fireplace in the living room, perfect for those cool winter evenings. There is a gas grill on the front deck, wireless (or wired) internet, Garage parking, brand new LG washer and dryer with steam feature, a 65 inch Sony smart HDTV with Direct TV Genie with HBO/SHO and Starz, Netflix and Amazon Prime. And there are additional TVs in the bedrooms. There is central A/C but you probably wont need it as there are ceiling fans throughout and the house is airy and breezy. The furnishings are a mix of modern with some quality eclectic pieces, and a great collection of colored glass lamps. All designed by the owner who is a design architect with great taste. The expansive 1/2 acre hillside property tiers up the hill to the house which is directly around the corner, so the two properties join together, creating this extravagant garden right in the middle of Americas second largest city. The owner is nearby to respond quickly to any needs or issues that may arise. This home will give you an authentic flavor of life in this special community. Silver Lake has been a magnet to creative people for decades. Artists, film makers, musicians and architects have been drawn to this almost bucolic setting, lush hillside homes around a lake in the middle of this huge and vital city. The house is in the absolute heart of this community, just 2 blocks from the lake with its popular jogging path and the beloved Silver Lake meadows, the core of this creative neighborhood. Mix with the local color, have a picnic on the lawns, enjoy a glass of wine, fly a kite, become a part of this dynamic community. Wonderful shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, music venues, galleries and all the other attributes of an artistic enclave are abundant and easily accessible from the apartment, many by foot or a just a short drive. Just around the corner you will find a few of Silver Lakes trendiest spots, the Cha Cha Lounge, The Red Lion Tavern, Silver Lake Wine, Gingergrass, Silverlake Coffee, The Edendale Grill, Home restaurant... The list just begins. Silver Lake has been an architects playground for decades, many famous designers have experimented here, building what have become iconic examples of mid century modern designs. You will find many classic Neutras, Schindlers, Lautners, Ellwood, Ain, Lloyd Wrights, down the block and around the corners. My favorite is an exquisite Lloyd Wright around the corner, it was home to Anais Nin, where she wrote many of her trailblazing diaries. Many young architects are continuing in that tradition of experimental modernism and many new future icons continue to pop up all over the neighborhood. Although you feel like you are in a hillside lake resort in the Italian countryside, the house is right near 4 of the citys main arteries, the 5, 101, 110, and the 2 freeways are minutes away. So the entire city is easily accessible from here. Head west on the 10 to the beaches of Santa Monica and Venice, or you can hop the 2 west to Pasadena and enjoy a day in old town and the gorgeous Huntington Gardens and Museum (Gainsboroughs Blue Boy) and the astounding collection at the Norton Simon museum (many Van Goghs, and a Raphael). If you are here for work you can hop the 5 to Universal, Warner Brothers, Disney and Dreamworks, all a short 10 minute drive. Or take surface streets to the Paramount lot, a 10 minute drive. Downtown is even closer. Enjoy the LA Philharmonic at the Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, an opera at the Dorothy Chandler, a play or musical at the Mark Taper or a concert at the Staples Center or Nokia Theatre at LA live. Hit MOMA, or LACMA. Its all nearby, Silver Lake really is the perfect central location to visit all of LA. And my place offers serene and functional comfort, a perfect home base for your visit. Please note that cats live in the yard, they generally keep to themselves and they are not allowed in the house.
