1957 Time Capsule in Silver Lake

1957 Time Capsule in Silver Lake


2840 Angus Street, Los Angeles, CA 90039

Attention all Mid-Century architecture and interior design fans: put this place on your open house tour plans – or call me to make an appointment to see it!. This 2BR / 1 BA Silver Lake home looks like it was put into storage in 1957 (the year it was built) and just opened up again for 21st inhabitants. Designed by USC architecture student Edward C. Malone for his friends Donald and Ruby Moreland, this meticulously restored post-and-beam home exhibits many of the hallmark “modern” elements of its era.


 The home has a classic 50's layout with open beamed ceilings, Douglas Fir paneling, clerestory windows and floor to ceiling windows.

  I love the built-in shelf seating by the fireplace. Outside the sliding glass door is a deck that skirts he front of the home providing tree-top views of the hillsides.


 The globe light fixtures are a quintessential design feature from the period.


 A superb kitchen boasts vintage Hotpoint "Customline" oven and cooktop , cork flooring and "flying coffin" overhead cabinetry.

 With the Doug Fir walls and large windows surrounded by greenery, the bedroom has a very restful vibe to it. Just what a bedroom ought to have.

 The vintage bath with original tile work and fixtures has a timeless feel to it.

 The second bedroom makes for a great office.

 Very private rear yard and patio has stepping stone and pebble surfaces with bamboo shrubbery.


If you would like to see this or any other property, call me to make an appointment. David Kubiczky, PLG Estates – 323.497.7555
