Mayor Eric Garcetti and his family have decided to move out of their their million-dollar, contemporary-style home in the hills of Silver Lake for the 92-year-old, Tudor-style mansion in Hancock Park that serves as the city’s official mayoral home, the Daily News reports today.
Why did Garcetti, who was elected mayor in May, and wife Amy Wakeland decide to move west into the Getty House? The Daily News said:
The decision was based on the Hancock Park property’s convenience, its central location and its size that allows it to be used for official events.
Garcetti and Wakeland said they will keep their Silver Lake home that was purchased for $1.425 million in 2011, according to online property records. The couple moved to Silver Lake after living for several years in another contemporary-style home in the Elysian Heights section of Echo Park.
