Set above a quiet street, this Spanish home was the residence of an actor and Hollywood Foreign Press Association correspondent and his wife; who hosted a number of celebrity parties here. The first time on the market in over 60 years, this is the opportunity for a new owner to update it and make it their own. Natural sunlight floods the hardwood floors, and period features include arched doorways, wrought iron rails and fixtures, charming built-ins, and a picturesque corner fireplace. The remodeled kitchen is equipped with stainless appliances. The private backyard is an entertainer's dream with broad stone patio, grassy yard and shielding trees. An aged Saltillo tile front balcony looks out to views of the mountains beyond. This timeless retreat, is located in the highly sought after Ivanhoe School District, in the heart of Silver Lake. Discover the neighborhood's fascinating Secret Stairs and explore what many consider LA's hippest neighborhood and most-watched restaurant scenes.
