Eastside Property: Divine Silver Lake home for sale – steeple included

After a dispute with Echo Park evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson in the late 1930s, Harriet A. Jordan, Sister Aimee’s former business manager, served in later years as the  pastor of her own small church a few blocks away on Silver Lake Boulevard. Calvary College Church  is long gone (Rev. Jordan died in 1955, according to the L.A. Times) but the church building on the 800 block of Silver Lake Boulevard is still there and has been converted into a private home.  That 1,800-square foot home – complete with church steeple and bell – is now on the market at an asking price of $648,000, according to Redfin.

The listing does not mention the 1938-building’s religious past or the fact that it is the only building located on a small triangular island at Silver Lake Boulevard and Parkman Avenue.  Instead, the listing focuses on what is the holy trinity for many of today’s buyers: concrete floors, an open floor plan and “professional grade appliances.”


  1. this thing is ridiculous

  2. …ly awesome!

  3. I actually like it, open space, balcony and the bell!

  4. It would make a great yoga studio.

  5. If you offered it to me, I would definitely take it!

  6. If I had the money, I’d buy it. Totally unique and may qualify for the Mills Act with that history…

  7. Simply beautiful.

  8. I agree: the coolest and super-near my current rental, though pricetag is big deterrent. AR
