Built in 1908, this vintage 2 bedroom ( solely a vacation home)in the midst of urban Silverlake which has become a famous neighborhood (Forbes's 'hippest neighborhood in America) due to its wonderful mix of artists and families. Walk everywhere!
Built in 1908, this vintage house is a very special furnished 2 bedroom, plus den/office with 1 bath. Nestled right smack in between Silverlake/ Echo Park, this is in a great location in the midst of everything. Urban Silverlake has become a famous neighborhood (Forbes's 'hippest neighborhood in America') due to its wonderful mix of artists and families. Walk everywhere!
Huge fenced in yard, and park car next to front porch behind rolling fence w/ security lights.There are many unique features such as custom French mahogany doors through out the home, living room and bedrooms have French doors that lead to a very private mahogany side deck (8 feet x 40 feet) which surrounds 80 year old yucca trees, which has been a wonderful place to entertain year round... a sweet Shangri-La to enjoy breakfast or just relax. Dining room is bright with French windows, and wainscoting, with dining table for six people, built in bar, and a window seat. Retro-kitchen is fully loaded/ stocked kitchen which has vintage stove, dishwasher, butcher block coffee grinder, and coffee/ tea maker. Mud room off kitchen has washer, dryer, and fridge with back door entrance. The front porch has a nice view of palm lined street....that's a great place to have a cup-of-joe! The bedrooms each have queen beds and ceiling fans with French doors that lead to side deck. Hard wood flooring throughout, except for office/den which has carpet. It is currently being used as an office with a day bed but a cot can be placed in there for an additional guest. A/C units in both the living room and office. High Def TV, with Apple TV and bluetooth sound bar. High speed wifi avail in the house. Bathroom is located between both bedrooms, with a door from each bedroom into bathroom which includes bath/ shower combo in a vintage green. One of the best things about the house is that you really feel like you've left the city, even though you are walking distance to great food/cafes/yoga, and all the eclectic options surrounding the neighborhood, a 15-20 minute walk to the Silverlake Reservoir where there is a great dog park or to Echo Park Lake for a paddle boat ride or a Friday night walk through the farmer's market. No need to get in a car to take an early morning yoga class at Urth or Bar Method (5 min), and then stroll to Silverlake Juice or Moon Juice afterwards. Want to have a drink without worrying about driving, you can hit or Los Globos, Hungry Crow in Silverlake or head towards Echo Park ( 12 minute walk) and check out The Echo, Elf Vegan Cafe. Mohawk Bend or House of Intuition for a sound bath or spiritual class.
The Metro bus stop is a few minutes to Sunset Blvd. you can take bus east for Metro Station (direct) or take it west and end up on Pacific Coast Highway at Santa Monica Beach or The Lake Shrine (Yoganandya Center).

When describing this home I have advertised or disclosed that this is a house of pure love! Babies were born in the living room and while we have had yearly tenants, we have had three tenants get married while living here. Two get pregnant and have babies. Something about this place makes you feel pretty in love and peaceful!

My husband Mario and I like to collaborate on all our ventures~yes, we can't be bound by the 9-5 sort of living while raising our four sons. We roast our own organic coffee beans and hope that one day our sons will bloom this business- Belli Fratelli Roasters, which means good brothers in Italian! We take pictures and do photography as Bella Faccia Foto. We do everything with love and full creative force, not bound by many limitations really. When traveling we regard your home as if it were our own. If you plan to stay on our property in one of our homes, there is nothing you will lack for, because we have thought of your every need. We always greet our guests with a care package as an extension of our deep hospitality. We are the Di Donato family and look forward to crossing paths with you.
