2421 Silver Ridge Avenue in Silver Lake


The Hawk House, 1939, Harwell Hamilton Harris, architect. This rare and significant offering is a striking example of H.H. Harris at his early simple best.

Trained by Richard Neutra, yet influenced heavily by Frank Lloyd Wright, H.H. Harris designed houses that fit comfortably into the Californian landscape.

Harris believed that the architect worked from the inside out, and here he arranged compositions of box-like masses juxtaposed in surprising ways.

Walls of glass and an almost Japanese simplicity define the public rooms with banks of one-lite French doors, transforming the house into a modernist pavilion.

On the lower floor, there are two bright and well-proportioned bedrooms, and a generous bathroom.

The outdoor terraces extend the living spaces into nature itself, and there is a wonderful entertaining and dining area adjacent to the kitchen.

Iconic views of the reservoir, Lautner’s “Silvertop,” the Griffith Observatory, and Hollywood Sign – all in a prime Silver Lake location.
