Magical midcentury hideaway in Silver Lake

Magical midcentury hideaway in Silver Lake

May 28th, 2021|Properties|

Occupying a sought-after location in Silver Lake’s Moreno Highlands, this 1940s midcentury has been elevated to bring to life the charm of its character and the magic of its setting.

The two-story home sits behind a wooden fence at 2023 Micheltorena St, above the sights and sounds of the city below and moments away from the frequently traveled Silver Lake Reservoir.

The well-lit interior champions color. Opening to soaring ceilings, the living room is dressed in a subtle pink with bi-fold doors leading to decks and a private garden. Painted a black-blue color, the dining room has a dramatic edge yet the custom stained glass and checkerboard floors layer pattern and texture striking the perfect balance between playful and refined.

From the dining room, a bright chef’s kitchen, equipped with custom-made vintage oak veneered cabinets and polished Quartzite countertops, features skylights and a row of windows with painted blue trim bringing in the green scenery of the outdoors.

A Jack & Jill bathroom with Cipollino Ondulato marble vanity connects the downstairs bedrooms. Upstairs the primary bedroom is lined with wood paneling and features built-ins, fitted walk-in closet, and views through French windows. The double-height Cle Zellige tiled shower with a marble built-in bench, sink and vanity is truly a work of art. 

Grammy-nominated songwriter, Sean Douglas, purchased the home in 2013 for $1.119 million. Dirt reports he purchased a Montecito compound earlier this year. His Silver Lake home is listed with an asking price of $2.395 million.
