Character. Not all properties have character worth preserving. But, unlike so many that have had timeless architectural features ripped out, this Silver Lake hillside beauty is a historical gem that offers sweeping arches along the wraparound patio, curvilinear parapet rooflines, high ceilings, exposed wood beam ceilings, Spanish-style roof tiles (steel tiles) and other Mission Revival details. It’s for history minded buyers who aren't looking for a run-of-the-mill gray and white modern house. A timepiece of quintessential California living built during an exciting time that heralded not just the start of the 20th century, but the beginnings of the burgeoning metropolis we now know as the City of Angels. Enhance the home by bringing in the modern conveniences of today and be assured knowing this home has stood the test of time for over 115 years.
This property is also an entertainer's dream. Not only because of its proximity to Sunset Junction, Triangle Park, farmer’s markets, shops and restaurants, but also all the potential entertaining areas all around the property..... from the wraparound porch with Hollywood Hill views, to the lovely charming rooms inside, to the additional deck by the kitchen. The expansive backyard is a haven with a lemon, orange and avocado tree amidst a landscape full of lush and mature cacti, succulents and drought tolerant plants that change color with every season. Imagine a dinner party under the stars in your own private oasis. Upstairs, next to the generous size master bedroom (see floor plan), is the Sunroom with 3 walls of windows where you can enjoy coffee or mimosas in the morning. This room is the current owners favorite spot, where they were able to see views of the Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood sign when they first purchased it.
So much potential being a corner lot of Maltman with an additional driveway that can fit an RV or another vehicle. Permits are almost ready for reinforcing foundation, bathroom remodel and other enhancements. Can you also expand the deck? Add an ADU? Property is zoned RD 1.5 on a corner lot. Opportunity abounds. In this day and age, there are lots of modern homes which can be built at any time, a gem like this is a rarity and a dream realized with someone who has the vision. Could this be the place you call home?
