William Kesling’s Collins House in Silver Lake


The Collins House is one of only a handful of homes in Silver Lake built by Architect William Kesling.

The 2,029 square foot residence was built in 1936 and features Streamline Moderne elements throughout, including the rounded facade, horizontal bands of windows, and curved interior magnesite staircase.

There are dramatic views of the Silver Lake Reservoir and mountains beyond from the light filled main living spaces.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath home also includes a den, which could easily be converted into a 3rd bedroom, if desired. The house was expanded to also include a 3rd-story office, which maximizes the picturesque views of Silver Lake.

The master bedroom features Kesling’s four vertical floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the Reservoir.

The residence is sited on a 5,387 square foot lot and is within walking distance to the Silver Lake Reservior, dog park, LAMILL and other great restaurants and shops.
