Los Angeles apartment description

Welcome to a wonderful hillside retreat in America's 'hippest neighborhood', Silver Lake. This comfortable and charming 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment will offer all of the comforts of home plus the luxury amenities of a fine hotel. In a classic California Spanish style duplex, the private apartment boasts a prime quiet hillside location with expansive western views of Silver Lake with the iconic Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory in the background. Enjoy amazing sunsets with a glass of wine on the deck, your private perch overlooking the city.

The apartment is in a lush garden setting, it's light and airy with lots of windows and a great hillside breeze blowing through. The main living area features an open plan with a large archway connecting the living room and spacious eat-in kitchen. The comfortable living room with its eclectic furnishings opens onto the front deck and shares it's glorious view. Here you can relax on the sofa and enjoy Direct TV on the new 42' Sony with an HD DVR with HBO/SHO and Starz. There is also a comfortable 'Home Office' desk area, where you can log onto the high speed internet. The spacious eat-in kitchen is a fully equipped chef's kitchen. It has state of the art stainless appliances and the long Caesar stone counter tops offer lots of room to get creative. The open arched plan allows you to visit with friends in the living room while cooking, you can also enjoy the view or just watch the news on TV. And of course there's a coffee maker and coffee grinder and fine fresh complimentary coffee beans. A staple of LA life!

The long hallway connects to the bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom features a whirlpool jacuzzi tub with powerful jets for a little relaxation after a long day of sight seeing. The bathroom includes complimentary quality shampoo, conditioner and soaps, first aid kit (and a blow dryer, the most requested item).

The very comfortable bedroom has a brand new queen sized mattress, a large walk-in closet with lots of space, and a beautiful antique Japanese Tansu chest of drawers for your extended wardrobe. The bedroom also has a new 32' Samsung TV also hooked up with an HD DVR. The bedroom opens out onto the lush backyard, with a beautiful Sedona stone patio. Here you will find a gas grill and quaint wrought iron bistro seating for a romantic outdoor dinner, or your morning cup of coffee.

There is a washer and dryer in the basement, which also offers some additional storage space for your extended stay. And there is off street carport parking available.

The apartments will give you an authentic flavor of life here 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 apartment 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 you'll find a few of Silver Lake's 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 architect's 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're in a hillside lake resort in the Italian countryside, the apartment is right near 4 of the city's 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 (Gainsborough's Blue Boy) and the astounding collection at the Norton Simon museum (many Van Goghs, and a Raphael). If you're 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. It's 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.

The apartment is registered for Transient Occupancy with the City of Los Angeles and thus I am required to charge (and pay to the city) a 14% Transient Occupancy Tax for all rentals under 30 days. If you stay longer than 30 days, we do not have to pay the tax.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1993

                          About the owner: Aloha form Tunnels beach, Kauai! (My other home). I have been a long term resident of Silver lake, over 20 years now. I'm originally from NY and spent my early adult life as a pioneer of the East Village in NYC going to NYU, then working as a set designer. I came out here and began to work with architects doing specialty design for many high end casinos and hotels in Las Vegas and around the world. I'm just another Silver Lake artist/hippy/eccentric doing my art and enjoying my gifted life.

                          Why the Owner Chose Los Angeles:
                          I came to Silver Lake in the early 90's to visit a friend who had just moved out here. I fell in love with the life here and the community and I knew immediately that this was the next step in my life's journey.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          When I gaze over the lake at the hills I feel like I'm in a resort in a European hill town. And yet this is probably the most vital metropolis in the US (after NY). To enjoy such serenity in the middle of such a large city is really special.
