Raised on Stilts, a $2.5M Midcentury in Los Angeles Captures Beguiling Views
Originally built in 1962, this post-and-beam residence on a hillside lot above the Silver Lake Reservoir was spruced up six years ago by real estate renovators Tradecraft. The team swapped a dingy interior for simple finishes that highlight the home’s original architectural features. Most alluring, a wall of glass along the rear facade floods the interior with natural light and looks out over treetops and surrounding hills.
The home’s original beamed ceilings are on full display, and Tradecraft removed unnecessary walls to create a sun-drenched living and dining area illuminated by floor-to-ceiling windows. Near the front of the home, an outdated kitchen was updated with minimal, modern finishes. The simple floor plan includes a single hallway running from the entryway to each of the home’s bedrooms.
At 2,140 square feet, the home features three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, as well as an additional bonus area and full bathroom beneath the detached carport. The bonus space comes with a private entrance, providing opportunities for short-term rentals or a quiet home office. Outside, a patio and large deck run beneath the home and connect to several graded paths that provide access to the bottom of the .15-acre lot.
