Now on the market in Los Angeles is a stellar midcentury with a compelling past. Set in the trendy neighborhood of Silver Lake, the home was designed by Wayne Fuess in the late 1950s, and has stayed in the hands of his family since being built.
A contractor by vocation, Fuess crafted the dwelling to serve as his personal residence where he then raised his only child, Elaine. When Fuess passed away years ago, Elaine, an artist, moved into the property to continue in her father’s footsteps, raising her only child, Aurora. Now that her daughter is grown, Elaine is looking to pass on the keys.
During her time in the home, Elaine lovingly maintained and restored the space, preserving its original charm while also expanding the interiors with landscaped outdoor areas to create a seamless indoor/outdoor flow.
Inside, an open floor plan unites the primary gathering areas, all of which frame spellbinding views of the city and nearby San Gabriel mountains. Exposed beams and wood-clad walls enhance the overall sense of warmth, with period details, including cork paneling and frosted clerestory windows, weaving timeless charm throughout.
Spanning 1,535 square feet, the home presents two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an office space. A detached art studio awaits outside, along with a spacious three-car garage. The hillside lot also offers enough room to add an ADU with its own driveway, if desired. Scroll ahead to see more of the property, now listed for $1,535,000.
