The house was built in 1937 in the Colonial Revival style. Period details, touched only by time, include a brick facade, steel casement windows, tile and a beautifully detailed balustrade. Along with the two formal levels there is a usable basement which served as Ms. Annon’s art studio, where she frequently entertained friends from the Silver Lake art scene. For the modern owner this will make an ideal office, family room, workshop or speakeasy, which conveniently opens to a rear patio and yard. Across the street find the sprawling grounds of the Paramour Mansion, easily among the most beautiful and renown properties in Silver Lake.
A sense of creativity permeates this place, no doubt due to its owner who lived and worked here for many years. Ms. Annon’s prolific and celebrated body of work includes drawings for haute couture, jazz album covers and Hollywood costume design. She was once called “the most important illustrator in America,” and her work is part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian. It’s easy to imagine why the artist was so happy here, finding inspiration in the house, the views and the surrounding hillsides. 3421 Landa Street now awaits its new owner and a new chapter in the pages of Silver Lake history.
