As you enter 2525 Lake View you step into the living room with its brick fireplace and smooth transition to the outdoor patio through the sliding glass doors and walls of windows.
If you can resist the temptation to go straight for the patio and stay inside, the living room offers great views and lots of room to relax.
The formal dining room sits immediately off the kitchen and features a floor-to-ceiling wall of vintage smoked mirrors. Very cool.
They don’t make them like this anymore! The kitchen’s built-in-place cabinetry, vintage knobs and drawer pulls, and classic flooring are rarely found in such great condition.
The gleaming chrome and assumed firepower of the gas stovetop have to be seen to be appreciated.
There are 2 bedrooms and both have large closets, hardwood floors, and lots of natural light.
This bedroom is set up as an office. Among the many inspiring creative spaces on the property, this might be the best (others disagree, the 2-car garage is “epic” according to the well-known record producer who stopped by Thursday evening’s twilight open house) Sorry, the vintage desk and wall unit are not for sale.
The full bathroom has a separate tub and shower enclosure.
Plenty of counter space in the full bath.
There is also a half-bath or powder room directly off of the entry.
Back to that outdoor space. Set directly off of the living room, the rustic brick-floored patio is offset by a serious backline of concrete. Both are topped by a rolling rock hillside with multiple terraces and leafy trees.
The backyard’s incredible river rock work has to be seen to be fully appreciated. There is nothing else like it anywhere I have been.
Up the staircase you have a deck area with built-in bench seating.
Here’s an aerial view of the brick patio area from the elevated deck.
The backyard’s top terrace level is set in the trees and is a great spot to unwind and enjoy happy hour.
A truly special property lovingly-maintained by its owner from the day it was built in 1965, this home is on the market for the first time in 50 years. A Silver Lake treasure in the part of the neighborhood with very great things now and very exciting changes looming: Whole Foods Silver Lake, Corralitas Red Car Property, Los Angeles RiverWalk, Frogtown’s imminent coronation as “hippest Los Angeles neighborhood,” and much more. See 2525 Lake View Saturday and Sunday from 1-4pm, or other times by appointment this weekend.
