If you’re going to live in the hills, you may as well live at the top. And here is your chance to do just that. Sited upon nearly 20,000 square feet of absolutely prime hilltop on one of Silver Lake’s finest streets, this immaculate East Coast Traditional with spectacular views in every direction was built by architect Theodore Criley, Jr in 1939. In its present form, refined updates throughout include a showcase kitchen by award wining architect Alice Kimm featuring concrete floors, uniform grain cabinetry and walls of sliding glass. And as great as the house itself is, the setting will absolutely steal your heart.


This home does a magnificent job of blending of original features with updates for modern living. A example of this is the original oak hardwood floors with gorgeous tiger striping and the new dual-paned windows with outer casement panes, which let in loads of light as well as fresh breezes.

Homes dotting the hillsides of Los Feliz fill the frame of this large picture window – just one of four lining the north, east and west walls of the living room.

The home offers a couple of options for dining rooms, but I like the version shown here, seen through the doorway. A former patio, which has been enclosed and now features concrete floor and dual french doors that open to a new, spacious patio.

A full length chalkboard marks the transition between hallway and kitchen. This surface, combined with the continuation of the concrete floor serves as the perfect segueway into the thoroughly modern kitchen.

Designed by award winning architect Alice Kimm of JFAK Architects, this kitchen is the bomb. Clean, sleek lines are found from top to bottom, and side to side. With Fleetwood sliding doors and windows, and skylights overhead, this room represents a totally unique indoor/outdoor chef-ing experience.

If cooking is your thing, then this is your kitchen. For example, this is an island designed as a workspace. There is more than enough room for the kids to eat at the table and not be in the way of your full-on culinary masterwork. And when it comes time to clean up, back-painted glass lining the walls makes it a breeze. No grimy caulk!

Here’s another little bit of magnificence. Check out the uniform grain of the teak panels across all of the cabinetry, which were custom built for the space by a family member in Wyoming.

The enchanting patio is perfect for just kicking back with a cocktail among friends, or for setting up for a grand dining experience with a large family gathering.

From the patio, meander down the stairway flanked by mandarin orange trees and professionally landscaped foliag, to the area where the loads of splashing and general frolicking happens.

A 40’x15’ saltwater pool and spa, surrounded by lush grassy areas, all of which are marked along their perimeter by a towering canopy of mature trees and views to the east, north, and west make this a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience in the hills of Silver Lake.

A compact sized 4K home theater is perfect for those stay-at-home family nights.

In addition to the media room, the house and outdoor spaces are equipped with with zone-controlled, built in speakers and a Sonos system.

The expanded master bedroom includes cathedral ceiling, huge walk-in closet, en-suite bath and a balcony overlooking the reservoir and mountains in the distance.

The view from the patio while enjoying your nightcap.

The fourth bedroom works perfectly as home office, studio or gym and enjoys fantastic eastward views.

The City of Angels spreads out beyond the reaches of your secure, gated grounds. Golden Hour never looked so beautiful.

One of the main reasons for living in the hills are the views. But not all properties have them. And most don’t have large, usable yard space. That’s why this property is so great because it possesses all of the most desirable features one could hope to find in the hills.

This package is a truly rare offering that the discerning buyer will not want to miss.
