Silver Lake

It took only a month  for this Gregory Ain-designed Silver Lake home to hit the market, receive an offer and change owners at $101,000 over the asking price.  The two-bedroom house house with views of the Silver Lake Reservoir was constructed in 1939 at a cost of $4,000 for newspaper reporter Urcel Daniel, according to Curbed L.A.

Other Eastside properties that sold during the past week include:

Atwater Villlage

It took a deep price cut before this 1,395-square-foot home on a large lot found a buyer.

Boyle Heights

The 1887 Simon Francois Gless Farmhouse, which was declared a historic cultural monument in 2010 with the support of actress Sharon Gless and other family members,  has been carved up into 15 single-room apartments.

Echo Park

The nearly three-quarter acre property northeast of Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard consists of 9 units in bungalow court in addition to a main house with a pool and views of the Hollywood sign.

Mount Washington

The small, 544-square-foot home with no off-street parking needed some “some serious help … from the foundation and sewer line to the roof.”  The buyer still paid $21,000 over asking.

  1. I know some people that live in those apartments. They are in need of a serious makeover. The person who sold the home and property used to own City Sip. I really hope the new owner gives the apartments much needed love. The house was always a mystery to me since it has a private driveway and you never see anybody come or go. Plus parking is a nightmare on Laveta being that it is now resident permit parking so when I would visit, I would have to park up the hill and walk down the murder stairs.
