Often the perceived quality of a remodeled home is associated with the degree to which the updated home maintains its original features and character. This is particularly true the older the home is. But what I’m a huge fan of is when a remodel simultaneously maintains the home’s original character while seamlessly embracing contemporary elements. That’s precisely what this new listing on Waverly Drive in Silver Lake accomplishes in a big way.

It’s no surprise that this wonderful job was done by none other than the team at Re-Inhabit. Finding a diamond in the rough is a basic tenet of flippers and these guys have a great knack for doing just that. The first time I blogged about one of their homes was last September for a dazzler on Mulholland Drive in the Hollywood Hills. (You can read about that one here.)

 As far as I know, this is the first Tudor Re-Inhabit. has done. Even though Tudors are not necessarily the hottest home style on the market, I suspect this one won’t go stale waiting for a buyer. The home features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 1,942 squa

As far as I know, this is the first Tudor Re-Inhabit. has done. Even though Tudors are not necessarily the hottest home style on the market, I suspect this one won’t go stale waiting for a buyer. The home features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 1,942 square feet of living space, and is situated on a nearly 7,000 square foot lot with a deep setback from the road.

 The step-down living room features a coved ceiling, hardwood floors, and dual French doors that open to a sunken patio, perfect for entertaining.

 Surrounding the patio is a professionally landscaped yard with huge mature trees and a stylish wall that flank its front border.

 The kitchen is probably my favorite room in every remodel by Re-Inhabit. Part vintage, part modern, and always fun. It’s definitely the sort of room you enjoy being in.

As always, even the light fixtures are designed and made by Re-Inhabit. Specifically, credit goes to designer John Douglas. His work always captures an aesthetic that cannot be wedged into a single category. It deftly blends contemporary, reclaimed antique, rustic, mid-century, and traditional elements all into one package. Clearly, I’m a fan.

With its beautiful vistas, every outdoor meal is a veritable fantasy picnic. And not losing sight of the practical, the home also includes new roof, electrical, plumbing, central heat and A/C. And it’s located close to shopping, cafes, the Silver Lake reservoir, and last but certainly not least….. it’s in the Ivanhoe School district. This one is worth checking out!
