Described in the LA Times as “perched on a promontory like a luxury railroad car” this residence offers incredible views and privacy.

The open frame design lets in copious amounts of light during the day and features both mountain views and city lights in the evening.
Two sets of folding full light doors encompass both walls of the main living room. Punctuated on one end with a fireplace and on the other end of the long narrow space with the kitchen. Each of theses rooms have access to the patios and pools and offers panoramic views.

2BR, 2BA, 1,413sf
I’m a big fan of this part of Laurel Canyon so it’s nice to see a classic 50′s post and beam pop up on the market. Set on a quiet corner with verdant hillside at front and back, the house is lifted from the street for privacy and sunny treetop views.
The open public areas (kitchen, dining, living and den) with concrete floors, brick fireplace/room divider, large steel casement windows, and pitched beam ceilings give the feel of a downtown loft.
…then we should talk! The market is red hot in Los Angeles and 2013 has been a great year for the sellers I have been working with so far. I created this web site for two reasons: to feature amazing homes for sale in LA, and also to feature my own listings to a large captive audience. In the past two months I have been fortunate to represent sellers who have reaped the benefits of this and were able to get great prices for their homes:
2338 Silver Ridge Ave – Allyn Morris duplex in Silver Lake. Sold for $879,000.
3507 Fernwood Ave – Steven Hill-designed modern home in Silver Lake. Listed for $1,150,000 and sold for $1,356,000.
2126 N Gower Ave – Richard Neutra and Paul Hoag triplex in Beachwood Canyon. Sold for $1,154,500.
2850 Nichols Canyon Rd – ModOp Design rehab in Nichols Canyon. Listed for $749,000 and sold for $789,000.
There are many more buyers than sellers right now (especially for architecturally interesting homes), so if you are thinking of listing your home please give me a call or email me. Here are a few words from the happy seller of 3507 Fernwood:
“We were in a bind. We were out-of-towners who owned a great house in Silver Lake — which we had rented to not-so-great tenants. When it came time to sell, a realtor friend directed me to Rob Kallick. That proved to be the best referral ever! Rob talked with us about our options in a clear and professional way, and then gave us time to think things through before making any decisions. We felt informed but not pressured. When we decided to put money into the house before putting it on the market, Rob found a terrific contractor and he also oversaw all of the work. I was worried that without one of the owners being there that things would bog down, but in fact it was the opposite. Rob moved things along in record time, and the work that was done was first rate.
When it came time to put the house on the market, Rob really shone. The photos he had taken of the house were gorgeous, the open house was attended by over 250 people, and within five days we had over 15 offers, all at or above our asking price! I really do attribute this to Rob’s understanding of the Silver Lake market, his eye for the potential of the property, and his professional conduct from start to finish. We are very happy clients and I can’t recommend him highly enough.” – Susan L.
