Here’s a blocky post and beam residence in Silver Lake built in 1960 by modern architect Stephen Alan Siskind, who also designed three other houses next door (in case architectural continuity is on your must-haves list when picking a neighborhood).
The airy 2,033-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an open living area illuminated by walls of glass and clerestory windows. The step-down living room boasts hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and a freestanding fireplace. It opens to a balcony with views around the neighborhood.
The kitchen has newer appliances, but retains some nice dark wood cabinetry. It flows neatly to the dining area, which has built-in shelving and a breakfast bar.
Other features include a new HVAC system and a lofted den that opens directly to the back patio.
The house sits on a 4,809-square-foot lot, with a terraced backyard, complete with a treehouse, and a carport with room for two vehicles.
Asking price is $1.795 million. Open houses are scheduled for Sunday, November 12, between 1 and 4 p.m., and Tuesday, November 14, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
