Eastside Property: “A singular and exceptional lifestyle” now on sale in Silver Lake for $1.459 million

Depending on your point of view, the Jones Residence, a nearly 3,000-square-foot Silver Lake home, is either an example of cutting edge residential design or a giant, wedge-shaped coffee table standing on concrete-block legs.  Built only three years ago, the home designed by the firm Escher GuneWardena was foreclosed on last year and is now  up for sale at an asking price of $1.459 million, according to Redfin.

In addition to four bedrooms, three baths and views of the Silver Lake Reservoir, the home on Ewing Street also includes some high-end appliances and fixtures that the listing says  “brings the best ease of modern joy to this aesthetic prism.” Not sure that means but the listing goes on to say “this whole package brings a sharp clarity to a singular and exceptional lifestyle.”

Is that “singular exceptional lifestyle” worth $1.459 million?


  1. Wow that is ugly. It’s probably worse than those two huge “modern” style houses that are going up on Hidalgo right now. These new houses have no respect for the neighborhood, but maybe that’s what everyone thought about all the mid-century houses that are so cherished now when they were being built. I guess the style is purely subjective, but no one needs a house that large, and why would you ever waste all that outdoor space in a city where you can spend time outside all year round.

  2. Wholeheartedly agree.

    Mid century houses are mostly thoughtful and refined whereas
    these obnoxious ego bunkers are just that.

  3. I first read that as “aesthetic prison.” Time for those new glasses, maybe.

  4. Give it a chance. I think once there is planting replacing the bare empty lot in front of it we’ll see it differently.

  5. Yikers, this is one butt ugly ass house i won’t feel sorry for this monstrosity if this house comes slip siding on down that hill during an Earthquake. Mudslide. Landslide, or Fire .
