While there’s little known about the architect, Birnbaum had an impressive 50-year career as a “self-taught structural engineer who helped design more than 20,000 homes, high-rises, restaurants, bridges and industrial buildings in Southern California” including working on landmark projects such as retrofitting the Watts Towers.
Built in 1958, the modestly sized post and beam structure is updated and aligns with a modern lifestyle. The interior sports restored original details, including a wood-burning brick fireplace, along with floor-to-ceiling and clerestory windows.
Sited on a quiet street-to-street lot, 2344 Silver Lake Blvd is listed for $1.895 million and comes with comfortable outdoor living space arranged around a new pool and spa. And, just outside your door is the Silver Lake Reservoir, the Meadows, Neutra’s office building and VDL Studios and Residences, Whole Foods 365, Ginger Grass, and Silver Lake Wine.
