I love it when a home in this price range comes on the market in Silver Lake. I love it even more if the home strikes me as something worthy of blogging about.  While this home may not be designed by Schindler, Neutra, Lautner, or Ain, there is a uniqueness to the design and style of this home that captures the imagination, as well the creative spirit of Silver Lake.

 Designed and built by its owners over a period of five years, this home has served its purpose well. It’s now on the market for the first time since 1952 and all of its original character and charm are wonderfully intact. And if a home’s provenance

Designed and built by its owners over a period of five years, this home has served its purpose well. It’s now on the market for the first time since 1952 and all of its original character and charm are wonderfully intact. And if a home’s provenance is your thing, the owners maintained an abundance of logs and ledgers for the project that you can pore over.

The listing describes the property as ‘adobe style meets NY writers/artist loft style home’, which I think is a great characterization. From the outside, it’s quietly unpretentious. The walls are made of slump stone, a brick that was the choice of many a Spanish builder for Missions in the Southwest. But inside, the design was intended to be open, functional and “modern”.

 The front door of the home's original design opened directly into the living room. A foyer was later added, which, combined with this cool door adds a degree of panache to the house.

With its soaring beam ceilings, large expanse of windows and open second level loft overlooking the first floor it feels more east coast than west coast. Features include fireplace in the living room, built-in bookcases and central heat and air. Additionally, the hardwood floors on the main level have been sanded and refinished.

 From the back yard, the home appears much larger. The upper level loft features a new deck, which spans the back of the house overlooking a large backyard as well as expansive westward views – a great place to take in the sunsets.
