Exceptional Mid-Century Silver Lake Architectural Residence Harmonizes Sweeping Views and Sprawling Grounds with Your Own Orchard
Exceptional mid-century architectural residence provides a setting that harmonizes fabulous views, a mostly flat landscaped lot over 10K+ SF, and renovations that retain discerning mid-century architectural flourishes. Private terraced rear orchard provides bounty with lime, grapefruit, orange, persimmon and avocado trees, and more opportunities to experience the view. Rarely seen is a property where you can enjoy sweeping westward views to the Griffith Park Observatory and expansive flat grounds. You and your guests will spend many a twilight gazing at the sunset, where you’ll enjoy a cocktail conveniently set atop the cleverly designed fencing with an extended margarita shelf. Rear yard is complemented with pebble and flagstone hardscape, above ground spa, and covered patio. Outdoor barbeque area under the covered patio has retained vintage built-in cabinetry complete with a kitschy 1950’s television (non-functioning), and with a sizeable blue tooth speaker for today’s audio needs. Grounds also include raised planting beds and a prolific organic tomato garden. This residence is also located in the blue ribbon Ivanhoe School district, King Jr. HS, and Marshall HS. Check with LAUSD to confirm.
Front door entry is complemented with Judson Studios stained glass design. Other mid-century flourishes include an entry flooring of period black stone, semi-opaque sliding grooved glass windows, wooden boxed ceiling, curved walls, and an open fireplace. Original 1953 built-in plant boxes are now resourcefully re-appropriated for storage and a bottom lit art display. Interiors are painted a crisp museum white throughout, providing a perfect backdrop for art.
