Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

2845 1/2 Avenel Street in Silver Lake


Avenel Homes is a ten-unit cooperative housing development designed by Gregory Ain in 1947.

Take Sunset is proud to present a rare opportunity to own one of the best units in this landmark Silver Lake complex, representing the best of mid-century modern design and thinking.

Ain worked with the ten original owners to create an innovative plan offering each owner privacy and flexible floor plans for amazing indoor to outdoor living.

Sited to capture the hillside and sunset views, each home features sliding partition walls to allow the owner to adjust the rooms to their needs as either a one, two, or three bedrooms along with one bathroom.

This unit has been thoughtfully remodeled with great respect for Ain’s architectural concepts while preserving many original details.

The private outdoor spaces also feature mature landscape and lounging areas.

The residence is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is located in the Ivanhoe School District.

Ideal location close to the Silver Lake Reservoir with many shops and restaurants just outside your door.

First showing Tuesday from 11 – 2 pm. Also open Saturday and Sunday 2-5pm.
