Asking $3.75M, This Bohemian Hillside Home in L.A. Comes Complete With a Potter’s Studio

By Kathryn M.
Originally built in 1939, the main house was renovated by renowned interior designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe.

A recently listed home in Los Angeles embraces its hillside location with rambling walkways that unfold from the street. Located in the Silver Lake neighborhood, the .25-acre property is marked only by a detached garage at the end of a cul-de-sac, with stairs and paths connecting the main house with a sparkling pool and guesthouse at the bottom of the lot. Inside, a chic interior renovation by L.A. design house Nickey-Kehoe offers warm colors and wood tones mixed with starkly white spaces.

A gate from the hilltop garage leads down to the main house. Additional paths lead around the house and down to a green-roofed guesthouse designed by local architect John Umbanhower.

Inside, an entryway leads down into the sunlit living area. The interior renovation was led by Los Angeles–based designers Todd Nickey and Amy Kehoe of Nickey-Kehoe.

Offering nearly 3,000 square feet of living space, the two-story main house features three bedrooms and four full bathrooms. The sunlit main level offers numerous picture windows overlooking the lush yard and Silver Lake's Ivanhoe Reservoir. Also on the main level, the master suite features a small seating area and covered balcony, along with a clawfoot tub in the en suite bathroom. Downstairs, a sunny family room offers an additional space to relax, while a timber bar top provides an expansive spot to work.
