About the Property
Luxury 1 BR 1 Ba Lower Apt in Top of the Hill Duplex 1/2 acre yard, Lake Views!
Inside the apartment, you’ll find everything you need to make your stay in L.A. movie star ready. The unit features all of the amenities of a fine hotel plus a fully appointed chef’s kitchen with brand new appliances and striking black granite countertops. Tastefully decorated with a mid-century flair, the comfortable living room (with 50” TV with HD DVR plus HBO/SHO) overlooks the spectacular hillside view. The sliding doors open to a private deck and a dramatic view that overlooks the ½ acre park-like garden full of lawns, terraces, flowers and fruit trees. The hillside yard is a sanctuary, including a large and secluded patio with built in spa, perched on the hillside for perfect sunset viewing. The large yard is shared with me and my other tenant, but we hardly use it and with its many private terraces and patio you will feel like you have this entire Shangri LA to yourselves.
Other featured amenities include an outdoor gas grill for backyard barbeques, with outdoor seating for large groups and a striking bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. The large comfortable bedroom with new plush queen sized bed has a huge picture window featuring the gorgeous view, (and a 40' TV with HD DVR).
The apartment offers off street parking, a full laundry and optional daily maid service.
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, Michelangelo's... The list just begins.
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.
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 only three houses up the block. 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.
This is a brand new listing for me here and I may have no reviews posted yet. But I do have a long track record as a host with my other vacation rentals in Silver Lake and my very special Hale in Kauai, Hawaii which I have been operating for 7 years and it is one of the most popular rentals on the island. Check out some of my reviews on my other rentals for the enthusiastic raves over the high level of hospitality my guests enjoy.
** 1/15/16: Please Note, the L.A. Department of Water and Power has partially drained the lake to do some repair work on its foundation as it transforms from reservoir to natural lake, it’s not exactly clear how long this will take. But don't worry, the view is still expansive and beautiful, and there is still the remnant of a rather large puddle that continues to reflect the lights at night to magical effect. I will update this message as the time frame of this event clarifies. I just thought you should know.

Year Purchased: 2014
About: 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 in the NY theatre. I came out to California 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/eccentric, living with cats, doing my design work and enjoying life in Silver Lake.
Why Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
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.
