What was David Salyer thinking? The “visionary” was credited in a Redfin listing for creating the two-story, castle-like home that rises above a sharp bend on Silver Ridge Avenue in Silver Lake, where residents spent several years watching on-again, off-again construction before the structure was completed in 2009. Spiked maces dangle from thick chains down the sides of the house, which is crowned with a battlement and a “tower retreat room,” according to the listing. Inside, the Medieval-Modern style includes stainless steel kitchen appliances, wood-paneled ceilings, opulent lanterns and a spa and steam shower in each of the two master bedroom suites.
After going up for sale last summer for $1.399 million, the home finally found a buyer interested in all that wrought iron, with the property selling late last month $1.175 million, according to Redfin. The home is definitely not for everyone but it has its fans, among them Silver Lake blogger Diane Edwardson. ” I love that house – it reminds you Silver Lake used to be a place where anything goes.”
