The 1924 Gerber Duplex Residence and gardens! Magda Gerber was an early childhood education pioneer who lived in this historic home for 50 years - hidden on a "secret" drive in the hills of the best part of Silverlake. Beautifully restored duplex above it all with modern amenities including a jacuzzi bath. The outdoor deck overlooks the fountain & lush gardens shaded by giant rubber, redwood and avocado trees. A magic and peaceful treehouse. Private upper unit yet in the middle of it all.
Flawless restored upper residence! With views to downtown and Hollywood sign! The Ulitmate Silverlake experience at the top of a hill just above the very best part of Sunset Boulevard! Take the hidden hillside stairs to Sunset Junction - home of Intelligensia, Vista Theater, Thirsty Crow, Night + Market Song, Casita Del Campo, Los Feliz and great shopping and sight-seeing. The Gerber House is on a "secret circle drive" with virtually no traffic. 2 large bedrooms with walk-in closets and a gorgeous 1924 bath with jacuzzi tub. Every care has been taken to restore the building while retaining many original 1924 details. Serene, gated with beautiful decks and gardens and a treeswing.
