Traditional Home For Sale in Silver Lake, CA

It was about 12 years ago when Marc and Dave set their eyes on this home located a short distance from the Silver Lake reservoir.

With many buyers competing for ownership they were initially outbid in multiple offers. However, the home was a fixer with an addition that made the floor plan confusing. The first buyers couldn’t make sense of what to do with it so they cancelled escrow.

The home returned to the market only for Marc and Dave to lose it in another round of multiple offers. Escrow cancelled again as these buyers also couldn’t figure out how to incorporate the addition into the house. And then it happened again.

As escrow after escrow fell apart the then owners recognized that Marc and Dave kept returning and decided to give them a chance.

Unlike all the previous buyers they knew exactly what to do with their future home.

They immediately decided the addition had to go. This exposed the home’s rich architectural bones and made adding modern updates easier.

And while the interior is filled with a remodeled kitchen, updated bathrooms, a versatile space that can be used as a media, office, gym or play area for the little ones their best design decision was completely overhauling the yard and adding a swimmers pool.
