SILVER LAKE HILLS! EXPANSIVE VIEWS! PRIME LUXURY 1BR APT IN COMFY SPANISH DUPLEX

Silver Lake Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2-4

Welcome to a wonderful hillside retreat in America's 'hippest neighborhood', Silver Lake. This comfortable and charming 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment will offer all of the comforts of home plus the luxury amenities of a fine hotel. In a classic California Spanish style duplex, the private apartment boasts a prime quiet hillside location with expansive western views of Silver Lake with the iconic Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory in the background. Enjoy amazing sunsets with a glass of wine on the deck, your private perch overlooking the city.

The apartment is in a lush garden setting, it's light and airy with lots of windows and a great hillside breeze blowing through. The main living area features an open plan with a large archway connecting the living room and spacious eat-in kitchen. The comfortable living room with its eclectic furnishings opens onto the front deck and shares it's glorious view. Here you can relax on the sofa and enjoy Direct TV on the new 42' Sony with an HD DVR with HBO/SHO and Starz. There is also a comfortable 'Home Office' desk area, where you can log onto the high speed internet. The spacious eat-in kitchen is a fully equipped chef's kitchen. It has state of the art stainless appliances and the long Caesar stone counter tops offer lots of room to get creative. The open arched plan allows you to visit with friends in the living room while cooking, you can also enjoy the view or just watch the news on TV. And of course there's a coffee maker and coffee grinder and fine fresh complimentary coffee beans. A staple of LA life!

The long hallway connects to the bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom features a whirlpool jacuzzi tub with powerful jets for a little relaxation after a long day of sight seeing. The bathroom includes complimentary quality shampoo, conditioner and soaps, first aid kit (and a blow dryer, the most requested item).

The very comfortable bedroom has a brand new queen sized mattress, a large walk-in closet with lots of space, and a beautiful antique Japanese Tansu chest of drawers for your extended wardrobe. The bedroom also has a new 32' Samsung TV also hooked up with an HD DVR. The bedroom opens out onto the lush backyard, with a beautiful Sedona stone patio. Here you will find a gas grill and quaint wrought iron bistro seating for a romantic outdoor dinner, or your morning cup of coffee.

There is a washer and dryer in the basement, which also offers some additional storage space for your extended stay. And there is off street carport parking available.

The apartments will give you an authentic flavor of life here in this special community. Silver Lake has been a magnet to creative people for decades. Artists, film makers, musicians and architects have been drawn to this almost bucolic setting, lush hillside homes around a lake in the middle of this huge and vital city. The apartment is in the absolute heart of this community, just 2 blocks from the lake with its popular jogging path and the beloved Silver Lake meadows, the core of this creative neighborhood. Mix with the local color, have a picnic on the lawns, enjoy a glass of wine, fly a kite, become a part of this dynamic community.

Wonderful shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, music venues, galleries and all the other attributes of an artistic enclave are abundant and easily accessible from the apartment, many by foot or a just a short drive. Just around the corner you you'll find a few of Silver Lake's trendiest spots, the Cha Cha Lounge, The Red Lion Tavern, Silver Lake Wine, Gingergrass, Silverlake Coffee, The Edendale Grill, Home restaurant... The list just begins.

Silver Lake has been an architect's playground for decades, many famous designers have experimented here, building what have become iconic examples of mid century modern designs. You will find many classic Neutras, Schindlers, Lautners, Ellwood, Ain, Lloyd Wrights, down the block and around the corners. My favorite is an exquisite Lloyd Wright around the corner, it was home to Anais Nin, where she wrote many of her trailblazing diaries. Many young architects are continuing in that tradition of experimental modernism and many new future icons continue to pop up all over the neighborhood.

Although you feel like you're in a hillside lake resort in the Italian countryside, the apartment is right near 4 of the city's main arteries, the 5, 101, 110, and the 2 freeways are minutes away. So the entire city is easily accessible from here. Head west on the 10 to the beaches of Santa Monica and Venice, or you can hop the 2 west to Pasadena and enjoy a day in old town and the gorgeous Huntington Gardens and Museum (Gainsborough's Blue Boy) and the astounding collection at the Norton Simon museum (many Van Goghs, and a Raphael). If you're here for work you can hop the 5 to Universal, Warner Brothers, Disney and Dreamworks, all a short 10 minute drive. Or take surface streets to the Paramount lot, a 10 minute drive. Downtown is even closer. Enjoy the LA Philharmonic at the Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, an opera at the Dorothy Chandler, a play or musical at the Mark Taper or a concert at the Staples Center or Nokia Theatre at LA live. Hit MOMA, or LACMA. It's all nearby, Silver Lake really is the perfect central location to visit all of LA. And my place offers serene and functional comfort, a perfect home base for your visit.

The apartment is registered for Transient Occupancy with the City of Los Angeles and thus I am required to charge (and pay to the city) a 14% Transient Occupancy Tax for all rentals under 30 days. If you stay longer than 30 days, we do not have to pay the tax.

Aloha form Tunnels beach, Kauai! (My other home). I have been a long term resident of Silver lake, over 20 years now. I'm originally from NY and spent my early adult life as a pioneer of the East Village in NYC going to NYU, then working as a set designer. I came out here and began to work with architects doing specialty design for many high end casinos and hotels in Las Vegas and around the world. I'm just another Silver Lake artist/hippy/eccentric doing my art and enjoying my gifted life.

Jeffrey Schneider purchased this apartment in 1993

I came to Silver Lake in the early 90's to visit a friend who had just moved out here. I fell in love with the life here and the community and I knew immediately that this was the next step in my life's journey.

When I gaze over the lake at the hills I feel like I'm in a resort in a European hill town. And yet this is probably the most vital metropolis in the US (after NY). To enjoy such serenity in the middle of such a large city is really special.

FANTASTIC PLACE

  • 5 of 5
I would recommend this place without reservation. A fantastic, spacious apartment in a beautiful, quiet, good neighbourhood with the most amazing view over the reservoir and surrounding hills (incl Griffith observatory and Hollywood sign). Owner is very easy and quick to deal with and very helpful. Fantastic rental.

A DELIGHTFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We could not have been more pleased with our stay at this property in Silver Lake. The property was as described and perfect for my wife and my long Los Angeles weekend. We hit during a record breaking heatwave, yet the natural ventilation made use of the living room air conditioner almost unnecessary.

The kitchen is well equipped with exceptionally nice appliances. The furnishings are interesting and comfortable. The bed was likewise comfortable and the bedding of nice quality.

Although we were advised of the available parking in the somewhat tight garage, we never found this necessary as there was always street parking within a half block. If you are unfamiliar with it, Silver Lake/Echo Park is a very interesting and attractive area. The specific neighborhood where this property is located is quite nice and appeared extremely safe.

We met Jeffrey, the owner, on one day and he was very friendly and helpful.

We could not have been more pleased with our choice and would unequivocally would recommend this rental.

CHARMING SILVER LAKE COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
Pictures don't lie- this is a charming little place to stay. The location was unbeatable. Close to everything you could want. Walk to Ralph's. Or walk to the Red Lion beer garden for dinner. If you do - go upstairs to the outside patio. It's wonderful. Sorry, I got side tracked. The views from the home are stellar. Cannot be beat. Wine on the front deck in the evening was perfection. I agree with everything said by the owner and the reviewers. I think you can tell a man owns the place though - there is no counter space in the bathroom girls. But not a problem - I made great use of the desk as my vanity. The only other thing is I saw somewhere that this place was wheelchair accessible. It really isn't. It would be almost impossible. We would definitely stay here again. Trust the description and the reviews!!!

PERFECT EASY-GOING VISIT

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with my young son for a few days midweek while taking care of a few appointments in LA. Great place, very comfortable but stylish. Loved sitting on the deck in the mornings with a cup of coffee. Cool part of the city to explore, and yet surprisingly not urban. Jeffrey was a terrific host, very helpful.

AMAZING, A ONE OF A KIND FIND!

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived we found the apartment easy to get into and very clean. It is more beautiful then the pictures reveal. Jeffery has taken the time to decorate impeccably and has added many special touches to make your stay a special one.
The location has a secluded/private feeling but very convenient and close to everything.

Inside in the main living space you have beautiful fresh cut flowers from the backyard with very tastefully selected furniture. The front of the apartment is an open setting so you can cook and still be apart of things in the living room while having a beautiful view of the Silver Lake hillside which my family and I truley enjoyed. There is all the little extras in the kitchen stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker... The bedroom is on the other end of the apartment so one person can sleep while others play or catch a movie on one of the two flat screens in the apartment that are conviently mounted on the wall. The batheroom is next to the bedroom and you have a jaquzzi bathtub to enjoy.

The grounds are well maintained and have been thoughtfully laided out. The parking came in handy along with two entrances one in front via the deck and the other in back pass the foliage along a stone pathway where you have a small table for two.

Jeffery was even so kind to let us up to his private cat sanctuary up the hill behind the main property to enjoy his beautiful hot tub over looking an amazing view of Silver lake.

Truly a special place Jeffery was always and amazing host, kind and accommodating while giving you your privacy. I even left my keys in the drawer which he immadiatly mailed to me over night as soon as I called.

I highly recommend enjoying this beautiful home and we look forward to visiting again.

If you get the chance to stay here you will not be disappointed.
Jeffory thank you for a great break from the polor vortex.

Thank you Jeffory

GREAT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
The location is very nice. Not far from almost everything and it's in a good neighborhood so you can totally walk to the cafe and grocery store which are not far either. Streets are very quite during the night. The furniture and interior design totally up-to-date. In particularly I like the kitchen very much. It includes everything you need and it's clean & organized. I cooked every night whenever I'm not exhausted from a day of travelling. Overall my experience of stay at this place is really good. The host is very friendly and he just live in the house behind this building. Therefore it's very convenient to reach him if you have any concerns. My fiancee and I always hang out with him and his cats after we finish dinner. My generalization to this unit is: it functions like a hotel suite but what you get is more like a home.
