About this listing
Swim, relax, and enjoy your personal oasis in the city. Walk to the restaurants and culture of Silver Lake. Enjoy the wonderful views from both sides of the house - lake, downtown LA skyline, mountains. Restore yourself in the secret garden. Have a romantic vacation, or enjoy this perfect base for a family to explore our magnificent city.
Note: if you want to party, don't inquire. While close to the action, this is a nice quiet neighborhood. Terrific spot for couples or families.
Sparkling modern jewel with perfect view of Silverlake from one side where the living room looks out. And on the back side there is a completely private, award-winning back yard with pool and spa, with another incredible view facing the other way, of city lights and mountains. The house's position on the crest of the hill above Silverlake makes a breeze so that summer is never anything but perfect. Inside is modern, easy, minimal, and comfortable. And all this is in the center of the hippest neighborhood in LA. A real sanctuary in the city.
There's also gardens in front and back, including a walkway to private sitting area with fruit trees.
Short walk to bars & restaurants. Internet, off-street parking for four cars, washer/dryer, water purifer, two showers, bath tub, hot tub, pool, two fireplaces, 1913 Chickering upright piano. Any other questions feel free to ask.
The Master Bedroom has a organic king size mattress and bedding on a beautiful Danish midcentury platform frame. The room has direct access to the deck, spa and pool, as well as a private en-suite bathroom with private shower and bath. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and direct access to a 2nd bathroom with toilet, and shower/bath. 3rd bedroom, which also directly adjoins 2nd bathroom, which is usually set up as office. Let me know if you'll want the third bed set up in that room. Thanks. 3rd bathroom is a half-bath.
If you're looking for a romantic oasis right in the city, or for a lovely place for you and your kids to enjoy, or for a magic spot for a creative recharge (or some combo of all those things)... Welcome!
Guests have access to the whole house, including the private pool, spa, front and back yards, gardens.
Interaction with guests
I or an assistant will show you around the house when you arrive - this is not a hotel, it's a private home. One of us will always be available should any problems arise. Other than clear communication on your check in, I will leave you alone to enjoy your stay.
Silverlake has become famous (Forbes's 'hippest neighborhood in America' - take it with a grain of himalayan salt) due to its wonderful mix of artists and families. There are old ethnic restaurants of every kind, new raw and organic restaurants, both vintage and new designer clothing shops, all in an area that's a retreat from the grid of LA, especially for those of us with a lake view. Natural beauty combines with more things to do than you'll have time for. Many residents of Silverlake stay local because everything we need is here, but we're close to the rest of town as well, in the gentle hills between Hollywood and downtown.
There are several bus lines nearby which run downtown and to other areas. Parking is easy. You may also find yourself walking around the reservoir, in the hills, or to local restaurants and bars.
Other things to note
GREAT house for families to relax, couples looking for romance, or writers and artists looking for a quiet place to write or recharge. (This is NOT a party house.)
Gatherings of more than 7 people, and film/photo shoots, are not allowed without prior permission; playing loud music is not permitted due to the neighbors, although normal respectful enjoyment of the place is encouraged!
Pool/spa/yard curfew hours til 930pm on weeknights, and 1030pm on weekends due to noise concerns of neighbors. Guests need to be respectful about noise at all times as this is a quiet neighborhood.
Full house manual will be provided with booking.
I'm a musician, performer, composer, and music producer. I keep my house clean. When I'm out of town playing shows etc it would be great to have someone rent my beautiful home.
