About the Property

One bedroom home, vintage elements, airy with French windows throughout.

One bedroom home, vintage elements, airy with French windows throughout. Located in electric Silverlake/Echo Park right off Sunset Blvd./Benton Way.

This casita has been filled with vintage charm, separated from the main home. The private grassy backyard has a BBQ to dine outside, if you are coming with your pet it is perfect for play. The living room has a great desk that converts into a table to dine for 6 people if you want to host a dinner party, otherwise easy use of the breakfast nook in kitchen is ready. A queen size bed with ceiling fan in bedroom, full bathroom. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make and serve yummy meals which include appliances (blender, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker) There is ample room for storage with built ins and a walk in closet and dresser in the bedroom.There is a laundry room off the kitchen with iron board/iron. It is used solely for guest purposes, and is unencumbered by the owners personal items.

It is private with off street parking for two cars along side of house behind electric gate.

Perfect for one person, a couple, young parents with a small child, or a stay over friend.

One of the best things about the house is that you really feel like you've left the city, even though you are walking distance to great food/cafes/yoga, and all the eclectic options surrounding the neighborhood, a 15-20 minute walk to the Silverlake Reservoir or to Echo Park Lake for a paddle boat ride. No need to get in a car to take an early morning yoga class at Urth or Bar Method( 5 min), and then stroll to Silverlake Juice or Moon Juice afterwards. Want to have a drink without worrying about driving, you can hit or Los Globos, Hungry Crow in Silverlake or head towards Echo Park ( 12 minute walk) and check out Wine For The People, The Echo, Elf Vegan Cafe for nighttime fun. The Metro bus stop is a few minutes to Sunset Blvd. you can take bus east for Metro Station ( direct) or take it west and end up on Pacific Coast Highway all the way to the beach.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband Mario and I like to collaborate on all our ventures! Yes, we can't be bound by the 9-5 sort of living while raising our four sons. We are both photographers and own Bella Faccia Foto, you will see some of our photography throughout our casita. We do many things aside from take pictures in the entertainment industry, for me, my most important work is empowering women through service and community. I am a Postpartum Mother Roaster, which means I care for new moms just after birth. My husband's passion ( aside from his mad acting skills) is coffee bean roasting, he has created some of the best coffee blends for Belli Fratelli Roasters, along with toss pizza at famous Vito's Pizza in West Hollywood, which is our brother's business (some of the best pizza you will have in LA). Both Mario and I take great pride in all that we do, and hope to bring you the best experience while staying in Casita Di Donato.

Why the Owner Chose Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
We lived in the front house on Reservoir for four years, during that time we transformed it into the loving home that it is now. If you want to fall in love, get married, get pregnant.... or simply relax.... this house is for you. We have not only birthed a couple of babies here, we have had three long term tenants get married and pregnant while staying in both of our homes on this property. All we can say is it has great love juju and can't wait for you to come and experience it's good vibes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is very private, and you can walk in either direction down Sunset Bvld. and it is all very close to the freeways 101, 5, 110, and the 2. convenience, convenience!
