When I was visiting my daughter in Rome a couple of months ago, we went to an incredible restaurant that was off the beaten path, away from the throngs of tourists; a welcome retreat from the seemingly endless ruins and dank catacombs. What's the point? The part of Rome where this restaurant is located was referred to several times as the "Silver Lake of Rome." Bottom line: Silver Lake's coolness is known the world over and emulated everywhere.
I just listed this fantastic pad in Silver Lake. It's a Spanish gem replete with all of the things that are great about Los Angeles architecture.
The home was built in 1926 when people built homes based on fantasy. In any neighborhood, you might see a French Normandie flanked by a Mediterranean villa and a Dutch Colonial. It was a whimsical time when individuals could build based upon imagination as opposed to what was currently chic.
The period details throughout this property are exquisite. From the tile floors to the wraught iron interior doors, arched hallways and beamed ceilings, this home oozes character.
The home is sited on the street side of a 6,800 SF lot with most of the property gently sloping southward behind the house. There is ample room for a pool.
Upstairs are 2 bedrooms, one bathroom a formal living room, dining room, kitchen and foyer. From the living room's picture window, there is a spectacular southward view across Maltman and to the sea.
Downstairs is a huge bonus room which could be a studio, 3rd bedroom... anything.
6,810 SF Lot
