Artist Pauline Annon lived in one of the most remarkable homes in Silver Lake. When it hit the market for the first time in almost 50 years it was a serious fixer. The only buyer who stepped up for the challenge was a developer. And you won’t believe what he’s done with the place.

Located within the coveted Ivanhoe Elementary School district this circa 1937 Colonial Revival, sited on a hillside lot, hit the market in the summer of 2015.
Stunning period details like a rarely seen brick facade, original steal casement windows, and a beautifully detailed iron balustrade leading to the second floor couldn’t distract you from the sloping floors and the need for several core upgrades.
Now Annon’s artistic sensibility lingers in the easy flow of spacious light-filled rooms, each imbued with creative inspiration and a wonderful sense of tranquility. Every window, deck, and balcony captures views spanning from the Hollywood Sign to the San Gabriel Mountains and beyond.
The living room and formal dining connect to a fully remodeled kitchen. While the upstairs houses a suite of three bedrooms with a master featuring an attached bathroom and its own private deck.
The expansive lower level is a beautifully renovated work-and-play space featuring a den/office, screening room, bar, wine cellar, laundry and a sun room that spills onto the large rear patio and yard.
And while you enjoy the seclusion of your hillside location neighborhood favorites like The Reservoir, Sunset Junction, Intelligentsia, Cafe Stella, Forage, Trader Joe’s, Gelsons and Whole Foods 365 are just minutes away.
