Crisp, Fresh and Sunset Junction Adjacent, $1.35MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
It’s a combination that rarely comes along– outstanding design and finishes, a great neighborhood, plus outdoor space– in Silverlake. A 3-bed, 3-bath free=standing private house that lives like a condominium, 1372 Edgecliffe Drive was built in 2011 and is the work of the design/build firm Green City Building Company, bringing together classic California Modernism with a profound sense of high construction and environmental values.
Green City has been a leader in multi-unit projects, especially benefiting creatively from Los Angeles’ 2005 Small Lot initiatives, which sought to increase thoughtful, modestly-sized housing infill projects to alleviate what was then a profound housing shortage. 1372 Edgecliffe remains a classic.
What We Love: It’s as crisp and forward-looking as the day it was built, in a great walkable neighborhood but you still get a 2-car garage. And while some might quibble with the laundry in the garage, you can’t quibble with a car charger.
The top floor is a luminous, sklit space opening to a broad deck with classic Silverlake views.
