Lowry designed several notable works in the area and made a significant contribution to the architectural and historical context of the neighborhood. At 2052 Mayview Drive he created a home for himself and his family, combining an artful sense of space and proportion fused with practical elements for everyday life. Along with the dramatic entry and stairway that serve as focal point set pieces, there are three well-proportioned bedrooms, a den / media room, and entire walls dedicated to built-in closets. The Master Bedroom has its own fireplace.
Glass surrounds the kitchen, dining and living rooms which open to a wide rear deck that is ideal for entertaining — you feel as if you are floating above the hillsides. Over the years, tasteful updates have been made to this home, however much of what you see today is original including colors, textures and surfaces selected by Lowry himself. There is a two car garage, and above it, the detached studio complete with a powder room. As an added bonus there is a substantial basement workshop with a potters kiln.
Mature landscaping throughout the property includes large trees and drought-tolerant elements. The coveted Franklin Hills location puts you on a ridge between Los Feliz and Silver Lake, with easy access to the best markets, shopping and dining of the Eastside. A beautifully rendered house by a notable architect in an ideal location. This is a special opportunity to be just the second owner of 2052 Mayview Drive.

The longtime residence of noted artist/illustrator Pauline Annon is offered for the first time in over 50 years. It’s a rare opportunity to purchase a remarkable Silver Lake property, which is virtually unchanged since 1937. Its choice hillside location is in the coveted Ivanhoe School District, with stunning views of Silver Lake, the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Park Observatory and San Gabriel Mountains.
Period details include a brick facade, steel casement windows, tile and a beautifully detailed balustrade. Along with two formal levels there is a usable basement that will make an ideal office, family room, studio or speakeasy, which conveniently opens to a rear patio and yard. Across the street find the sprawling grounds of the Paramour Mansion. A sense of creativity permeates this place, due to its owner who lived and worked here for many years. Ms. Annon was once called “the most important illustrator in America,” and her work is part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian.
