SILVER LAKE — Silver Lake has been the lips of every trend-setter and real estate speculator for a while now. Its main streets are already littered with restaurants and boutiques, and soon enough, it may even welcome its first boutique hotel and a Whole Foods. All of that is a long way of saying it’s evident that real estate in the neighborhood does not come cheap. You’ve been wondering, now we’re asking: Does $1 million even buy you that much house in Silver Lake anymore? Here are some options:
For just under the seven figure mark you can get this hillside, ultra-modern pad. This solar panel-equipped home may not have the most ideal outdoor space but it certainly does offer panoramic views from its multiple balconies in case you’d also like to soak up solar rays.
For a piece of Mid-Century Silver Lake, you can get this charming, if somewhat outdated, home and its adjoining apartment. The home’s kitchen may need updates but its open layout lends itself easily to today’s style of living. The home’s exposed-beam ceilings and spacious backyard add features that you simply cannot renovate up to.
This Silver Lake home is offering a view to pay for. This low-key, 1937 traditional is asking just over the million dollar mark for its stellar views of Griffith observatory — but only 1,700 square feet.
