Los Angeles house description

Welcome to a spectacular luxury home, nestled in a lush hillside garden with breathtaking views in America's '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. 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 1920’s. 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’ opening to a 500 sq. ft. deck, a spectacular perch form which to enjoy the dramatic sunsets across the lake.
The eat-in kitchen is state of the art, a real cook’s delight with everything you’ll need, brand new appliances and striking black granite countertops. It also feature 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’re 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 won’t want to leave the property.
Other amenities include a majestic stone fireplace in the living room, perfect for those cool winter evenings. There’s a gas grill on the front deck, wireless (or wired) internet, Garage parking, brand new LG washer and dryer with steam feature, a 65” Sony smart HDTV with Direct TV Genie with HBO/SHO and Starz, Netflix and Amazon Prime. And there are additional TV’s in the bedrooms. There is central A/C but you probably won’t 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 me, the owner, a design architect with great taste.
This home 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 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 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 house 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.
I am open to longer rentals as well and I will happily negotiate discounts for extended stays.
The house 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 House:
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.
