2151 Kenilworth Avenue In Silver Lake

It’s been a while since we’ve had such an incredible Silver Lake listing on the market! This charming traditional home was built in 1935 and is located in the desirable Ivanhoe Elementary School District. The 2,156 square foot residence has a beautiful living room with French doors that open to an entertaining deck with terrific views of the Silver Lake Reservoir.

1718 Webster Avenue in Silver Lake


I’m loving the newly listed Greenwood House, built in 1954 by architect Lee B. Kline. It’s set high in the hills of Silver Lake on a street-to-street lot. The home includes a redwood bridge/deck that leads to the entrance, lots of outdoor space and a beautiful kidney shaped pool, which you don’t find too often in the area.

Lake Boutique In Silver Lake

When I noticed a new shop going in near us on Silver Lake Boulevard, I got very excited. A new place to shop within walking distance! What would it be? Turns out it was Melissa Lovoy’s Lake, which originally opened in Silver Lake on Rowena Avenue back in February 2007. But now that Lake has moved right to Silver Lake Boulevard near my other favorite spots, it’s in dangerous territory…

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.
