Built in 1908, this vintage house is a very special furnished 2 bedroom, plus den/office. 1 bath, located in Silverlake/ Echo Park.
Huge fenced in grass yard, that runs along one side of the house. Park car next to front porch behind rolling fence. There are many unique features such as custom French mahogany doors through out. Living room and bedrooms have doors to a very private mahogany side deck (8 feet x 40 feet) which surrounds 80 year old yucca trees, which has been a wonderful place to entertain year round...a sweet Shangri-La to enjoy breakfast or just relax. Dining room is bright with French windows, and wainscoting, with dining table for six people. Retro-kitchen is fully loaded/ stocked kitchen which has vintage stove, dishwasher, butcher block. Mud room off kitchen has washer, dryer, and fridge with back door entrance. The front porch has a nice view of Palm lined street....that's a great place to have a cup-of-joe! The bedrooms each have ceiling fans and French doors, most days there is a nice breeze that flows through. A queen bed in each room that also enjoy side deck. Wood flooring throughout, except for office/ den which has a dark carpet. It is currently being used as an office/ lunge. I will include pictures with a cot included. Vintage bathroom is located between both bedrooms includes bath/ shower combo.
This house may not be suitable for toddlers, babies are okay but those just learning to walk may have a difficult time with porch steps and yard that is not level with the house ( for viewing). We welcome children but want to be clear about the steps or safety reasons.
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,at the beach.
This house holds many beautiful memories for our family, we hated moving but our family of six has outgrown it for good.
