1104 Nowita Place In Venice

This unique 2,257 square foot home is nestles away in a quiet pocket of Venice, on a narrow tree lined street. It was built in 1922 and features an original craftsman shell with a redefined architectural steel and glass form blended to the rear of the home, which creates two distinct faces. A modern-craftsman hybrid, this home seamlessly blends old and new, and provides both traditional function and flexible spaces.

2910 Durand Drive In Hollywood Hills

This gorgeous Mediterranean home in the Hollywood Hills was built in 1927, and provides 4 bedroom, 3.5 baths, an infinity pool, and exquisite views of the city and mountains from every room. A vintage Hollywoodland original, it features 3,015 square feet of interior space and has been exceptionally remodeled in the classic 1920’s style. It provides beautiful period details, like Saltillo and Moroccan tile floors throughout, wood beam ceilings, claw foot tubs, Moroccan tile accents, wood burning fireplaces, and wrought iron fixtures and railings throughout.

This Hollywood Hills craftsman has tons of original charm that blends seamlessly with the designer updates and finishes. Built in 1919, the home maintains period details throughout, including a vintage hutch, fireplace, original moldings, and oak hardwood floors.

1351 Coronado Terrace In Silver Lake


I just saw this charming California bungalow today. It was built in 1922 and is located on a great woodsy street in the Silver Lake hills.

Located moments from Eaton Canyon Falls and on the edge of the San Gabriel Mountains, this relaxing and serene mid-century modern home boasts gorgeous vistas all the way to downtown Los Angeles! The home is situated on a captivating .65 acres and offers a long private driveway and wrap around decks.

Food+Lab In Silver Lake

Rob is always saying that he wishes there were more places in Silver Lake to grab a good sandwich, and I’ve been hoping a place similar to M Café or Joan’s on Third would open over here. This week we both got our wish when Food+Lab open on West Sunset. It has lots of great sandwich offerings plus salads, breakfast options, coffee, and more.

Built in 1948 by architect Leland Evison, this post and beam home is listed on Pasadena’s Historical Resources Inventory, is eligible for landmark status and may be eligible for Mills Act tax breaks.

2047 East Live Oak Drive In The Oaks


I saw this mid-century modern home in the Los Feliz Oaks on Tuesday and was really impressed. Built in 1950, the home has been thoughtfully renovated, fusing designer finishes with the original architectural elements. The 2,162 square foot home would be ideal for someone who works from home, since there are plenty of office options.
