The Kawaguchi House, a stunning Midcentury Modern home in Silver Lake, is available for lease. Completed in 1953 by noted architect Eugene Kinn Choy, the residence enjoys a serene hillside location in the Primrose Hill enclave, prized for its easy Reservoir access and gorgeous vistas. Post-and-beam design and a thoughtful, practical layout are highlighted by floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outdoors inside. The home has been completely remodeled with stylish finishes, including wood, stone and Heath tile. Among numerous system improvements are discreet solar panels providing conscientious, low-cost living.
Enter through the tranquil front patio and you are transported; the home feels remarkably private even as it unfolds behind curtains of glass. Living and dining rooms join with the rear deck that has fabulous views, also enjoyed from the open kitchen that includes a high-end KitchenAid appliance suite and Thermador cooktop. Two downstairs bedrooms provide flexibility to use one as a home office or studio, and in the luxurious upstairs Master Suite find entire walls devoted to closet space. The Master Bathroom has dual vanities along with a separate soaking tub and stall shower.
The house includes a one-car garage, laundry room and bonus outdoor storage. In addition to solar there are energy-efficient systems including low E-3 glass, an extra layer of roof insulation and a tankless water heater. These tasteful updates are seamlessly integrated into Choy’s original vision, which has been enhanced over the years with the utmost care. The respected architect designed several homes in the neighborhood which is among Silver Lake’s very best, nestled amongst trees and just around the corner from the Reservoir. The shops and cafes of Silver Lake Boulevard are within easy reach including LA Mill and Alimento. The action along Sunset Junction is less than a mile away.
