Gilbert Leong Modern in Silver Lake For Sale For First Time

New, 35 comments

This spiffy modern in the hills near the Waverly Drive Bridge was built in 1959 by architect Gilbert Leong. A former draftsman for Harwell Hamilton Harris, Leong designed Chinatown's Baptist and Methodist churches, as well as the interior court and authentic Chinese garden of Pasadena's Pacific Asian Museum. Located within the Ivanhoe School district, the two-bedroom residence features beamed ceilings, walls of glass, two brick fireplaces, original bathrooms (including a sweet petal-pink-tiled one), a kidney-shaped pool, and mountain views (along with a pretty good view of the icky building next door). Per the listing, the 2,031-square-foot house has been "lovingly maintained by the same family that built it." Sited on a .37-acre lot, it's asking $947,000.
