Open House Obsession: Simplicity in Silver Lake, $1.35M


Where: 3429 Larissa Drive, Silver Lake
When: Sunday, May 28 from 1:00pm-3:00pm
Asking: $1,395,000
What: It doesn’t give much away, but behind the formidable stucco and corrugated metal facade are two luminous units with classic views of Silver Lake. Both fully renovated, upstairs is a 3-bed, 3-bath “owner’s” unit; downstairs is a 2-bed, 2.5-bath income unit. There’s no garage, but there is a permeable block parking space (in a front yard so low-maintenance that all someone has to do is whip by with a lawn mower every so often) and the house retains its original 1920’s roofline.

Inside, The story is all about light.

What We Love: This beautifully thought-out kitchen, especially the rolled steel backsplash.

The Team: Renovation design (including baths and kitchen) by Ayelet Eitan-Cohen of AECO Design; staging by The Platform Experiment; Joe Reichling and Boni Bryant of Bryant-Reichling at Sotheby’s International Realty are the listing agents.  Below, the master bedroom leads to a view deck; baths in the upper unit incorporate hand-troweled concrete.

Below, stairs to the lower unit, where the finishes are somewhat simpler and the sunlight a little more filtered.
