Some of the furniture inside now looks pretty contemporary, but the fixtures and details of this house are all straight from 1954, when the home was built. Located right down the road from the Ivanhoe Reservoir, this home designed by Gilbert Leong has a bevy of built-ins, ranging from book shelves to dressers, and bright, spacious rooms--after all, as the brokerbabble notes, "Long before the Meadow, Whole Foods or the press deemed it the Hip Capitol, Silver Lake was about space." The 3,172-square-foot dwelling sits on a nearly 9,000-square-foot lot, so it does have a good amount of space. It's asking $1.649 million.
