Available for the first time in over 50 years, this property is the longtime residence of noted artist/illustrator Pauline Annon. Sited in the highly desirable hills of Silver Lake this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of history and a remarkable property.
Virtually unchanged since 1937, there are period details throughout.
Including the brick facade, steel casement windows, tile and a beautifully detailed balustrade.
The wide open living room boasts hilltop views and is bathed in natural light. Original wood floors flow throughout much of the upper level.
The modest kitchen is perfectly laid out, spacious and ready for your finishing touches.
Within its 2,095 square feet there are two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms.
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.
Vintage tile is in stunning condition in both bathrooms. I love the mix of colors and details in this one.
Along with two formal levels there is a usable basement that would 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. This is a must see!
