Set back off the street and surrounded by a fence and landscaping, this Silver Lake Spanish-style house offers that private, “urban oasis” feel.
Fronted by a small porch and a front yard with low-maintenance plantings, the three-bedroom house retains its original hardwood floors and its cool, old vintage tile in the kitchen and in the bathrooms. (The full bathroom’s tile is original; the smaller bath’s tile is just an addition made to look retro.)
Newer additions include wall-mounted air conditioning units and double-paned, wood-frame windows.
At 1,158 square feet, the residence offers ample bedrooms, a dining area, and a bright kitchen with a galley-style layout.
The sloped rear yard, dotted with succulents, looks like it needs little water to sustain itself.
A great perk of this property: Access to the Silver Lake Reservoir is easy from here. It’s a block-long walk that involves using a quaint old public staircase.
Last sold in 2003 for $479,000, the dwelling is now listed for $729,000.
