2147 W. Silver Lake Drive, A French Provincial

CurbedLA wrote about my new listing before I could!  And, rumor has it, the LA Times will probably mention the home in an upcoming story.

Sited just steps above the Silver Lake Reservoir is 2147 W. Silver Lake Drive, an enchanting 4+3 French Provincial with amazing views of the water.  The 1920s home was renovated earlier this year to maximize a chef’s kitchen, a sprawling master suite replete with Carrera marble, and an over-sized deck perfect for outdoor entertaining.

As a cook and baker, I’m a big fan of the kitchen.  Built-in spice racks and long sheet pans flank a GE Monogram 6-burner range, grill, griddle, and double oven, while a Sub-Zero fridge keeps drinks and nosh cool.

A new rarity — the microdrawer! — a farmhouse sink, 2 lazy Susan roll outs, and subway tile complete the look.

My favorite feature of the home?  The Juliet balcony in the dining room overlooks the tranquil Reservoir.

While the home retains some old charm — an original Art Deco light fixture was restored and rewired for the foyer, original hexagonal marble tile remains in one bathroom floor, and a Chinese magnolia remains on the terraced yard — modern amenities avail for the new Buyer.

Here’s a quick list of the home’s notable features:

  • new HVAC
  • tankless water heater
  • CAT-5 wiring
  • dual pane windows with awning crank
  • newly retrofitted and bolted foundation

For those desirous of the Ivanhoe School District tag, the newly-permitted 4th bedroom is a must, along with less than 500 square feet of bonus attic space.



4 bedrooms, 3 baths

2,515 square feet
