Among the few women practicing architecture in Los Angeles in the 1920s and ’30s was Frankie Faulkner. The New York-native designed several Spanish Colonial Revival-style homes in Silver Lake, including this 1928 beauty in the Moreno Highlands.

Spanning 2,833 square feet, the tile-roofed home holds four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. Remodeled in 2016 by local design firm DISC Interiors, it now features a more subdued and neutral palette, along with hand-made tile and custom hardware.

Still intact are arched doorways and windows, including a large storybook window in the living room, where there’s also a beamed barrel ceiling and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace.

On a 5,663 square feet overlooking the Silver Lake Reservoir, the outside areas include “a Provencal garden [that] surrounds a saltwater pool” and terraced patios [with] entertainment and lounge spaces, making this an ideal place to spend sunny days.”

The asking price is $3.35 million.

Period details include an arched storybook window and beamed barrel ceiling.
