2306 Effie Street in Silver Lake


The Hanson Residence, 1924, architect Jean-Louis Egasse.

Built during the same period as the Egasse-Braasch House, this residence is an optimal example of the whimsical Storybook architecture of the 1920’s.

Egasse: “The curves and arches, although not symmetrical, are all geometrically related, in order to create an ensemble of harmonious lines suggestive of spiritual truths.”

Habhouse spearheaded the home’s complete restoration. All components and details have been attended to with original recovered materials or meticulously sourced items.

Brick clinker touches, asymmetrical lines, and irregular arches draw one into an emotional aesthetic.

The property also includes a separate guest cottage and bonus studio.

The property includes mature trees and succulents, sweeping city views, and an extended deck with seamless outdoor flow.

Located in the heart of Silver Lake but privately elevated, the structure and restoration define an exceptional lifestyle and home.
