Situated right alongside the Corralitas Red Car trail in Silver Lake, this two-bedroom ranch-style house built in 1947 fits in with the neighborhood: low-key, undeniably hip, and asking near a million dollars.
The house’s street-facing, contemporary exterior doesn’t hint at how bright the place is inside. In addition to a few sliding glass doors, the inside is also lit by skylights, including the one in the hallway by the master bedroom. All these nice opportunities for natural light make for lots of Instagramable nooks.
Whoever staged the house certainly knows the neighborhood; it's filled it with Midcentury-inspired furniture, Eames-style chairs, and Aztec textiles. Hardwood floors run throughout the house, and subway tile shines in the kitchen, where there's a dining area and access to the house’s party-ready back patio, set up as an outdoor living room-type space with a dash of grass toward the carport area.
The 1,177-square foot house is listed for $995,000.
