Built in 1919 and meticulously restored in 2011, this elegant duplex abounds with vintage style and charm. One of the first homes to be built on the block, the view of Los Feliz and the many authentic period details are not to be missed.
This listing is for the top floor (2 BR/1BA). If you need more room, see VRBO #412795 for the lower apartment, and/or VRBO #303778 for our nearby cottage.
Craftsman windows span the entire width of the building, giving you straight-arrow views of the Hollywood sign and the Observatory. The ceilings are 10 feet high with large windows in every room. The kitchen is farmhouse style, with a restored antique stove, original cabinetry, and a salvaged wood bar. The bathroom has a full size tub and plenty of space. Outside, you have your own deck with built-in benches and a small front yard that is secure and private, opening out to Griffith Park Blvd, just 2 blocks north of Sunset Junction in Silverlake.

About the owner: We began restoring buildings in Silverlake in 1997, but it's been a lifelong passion. Tim has a background in set decorating and woodworking. Robin has a background in Art Direction and loves gardening. We use salvaged/eco-friendly building materials, antique furnishings, and green cleaning products whenever possible.
We have many years of experience as landlords and hosts, and are known for being responsive, service-minded, and reasonable with pricing and management.
Why the Owner Chose Los Angeles: We love this part of Silver Lake because we can walk almost everywhere we need to go, but when we need to drive, the 5, 101, 110, and 134 freeways are very close by. We've always loved the trees, the architecture, and the neighborhood feel of Silver Lake.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: There's an innate sense of calm in this building, maybe because it's held up for almost 100 years. We love the view, the convenience, and the proximity to the 'flow' of the city. It makes for great work and family trips. Whether you are interested in architecture, sightseeing, music, food, wine, artisan boutiques, or the outdoors, Silver Lake has all of this and more to offer... we love this building in particular because it's so central and it has great character and style.
