Starting with a classic 1930’s bungalow, this vacation home rental in Silverlake is an inspired update that retains the charm of the simple Craftsman structure while modernizing it with a fresh Scandinavian inspired aesthetic and luxurious natural materials and finishes.
Tucked into a leafy garden surrounded by trees, the two story home has a private secluded feel but is within a short walk to the best of this chic LA enclave. The main floor is a bright and airy open plan space that combines the living room, dining room and kitchen with French doors that open out to the 450 square foot dining terrace. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one with bunkbeds specifically designed for kids. There’s an additional office/study and a gorgeous full bath with a luxurious freestanding bathtub. Employing oak, dark slate, Vermont marble, and hand made ceramic tile, the spaces are elegant and refined but understated and family friendly. The couple’s travels are evident throughout with lovely textiles, unique furnishings and art and are an intimate portrait of how the family lives when they are home.
Located on the lower level, the guest studio is a bright and newly renovated space with a small kitchenette, dining and office area, and a private entrance which opens out onto a patio. Shaded by a beautiful Chinese elm and oaks, the grounds include a fire pit, an in-ground spa, and outdoor seating areas for enjoying this unique urban hideaway.
Wifi throughout, climate control, laundry facilities. Private parking for one car.
Located in the heart of Silver Lake just above the reservoir, you are within minutes to great shops and delicious local eateries and a short drive to downtown Los Angeles, Echo Park, and Hollywood. Eclectic, unique and fast becoming the hippest part of LA, the area is filled with vibrant culture. This house affords a great spot and jumping off point for such iconic sites as Griffith Park and the Observatory, The Greek Theater, Sunset Blvd, and all of the unique hot spots and recreation in and around LA. From the sprawling city limits and the coast, to the mountains and beyond, it’s a great central location to explore this vast metropolis.
