The midcentury house skillfully integrates to its 5,171 square foot lot, sitting slightly above but mostly hidden from the street behind a mask of shubbery at 2305 W Silver Lake Drive.

Built in 1951, the home’s stucco facade departs from the wood-clad exterior seen on the Harris’s Hawk House and Mary and Lee Blair Residence.

Inside, the modestly sized two-bedroom residence measuring 1,440 square feet is bathed in natural light from clerestory windows, frosted glass panels, and multiple glass doors.

And while the well-preserved home boasts an array of original details—including a brick fireplace, laminate countertops, built-in desks, dresser, living room sofa with concealed storage, and peach bathroom tile—the home’s best feature are the two patios, one running alongside both bedrooms  and the other located off the dining room overlooking the Silver Lake Reservoir where you can enjoy outdoor living under the California sun.

On the market for the first time in 27 years, it’s listed for $1.599 million.
