Historic 1929 Spanish Across From the Silver Lake Reservoir Has an Unusual Toilet

New, 24 comments

Known as the John R. Hunt House, this 1920s Spanish Colonial on the western side of the Silver Lake Reservoir was declared a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 2001. Exactly why the residence was awarded this designation is unclear; our research efforts turned up no specifics apart from name, date, and serial number (#704, in case you're wondering). But judging by the photos, the five-bedroom, four-bath home appears well-preserved and reasonably unaltered. Distinctive features include a wrought iron staircase, stained-glass windows, pre-cast flooring and walls, French windows, hand-tooled doors, and some lovely vintage tile work. Oh yeah, and it's also got a toilet the likes of which we've never seen before, made to resemble a tulip. Per Redfin, the 4,210 square foot property was last sold in a foreclosure auction on July 1, where it got scooped up for $1.03 million. Its new owners now hope to flip it for $1.599 million.
