You'd love to buy a home in Silver Lake CA but what can you get in the $500,000. range that's more than 1,000 square feet, has 3 bedrooms and to top it off, is actually in Silver Lake's coveted Ivanhoe School District? If you said "nothing", you're right that you're not going to find a house that fits that description but what about buying a Silver Lake condo? If you've never considered it, this could be the perfect time. Condominium living offers all the benefits of home ownership, without the hassles of yard care or exterior maintenance. You may think you want a big back yard and a grassy front lawn but do you really have the time or inclination to mow it, and how much would you actually use it? With Single Family home prices in this neighborhood of Silver Lake still out of reach for many buyers, it might be time to check out some condos. I've talked about condos for sale in Silver Lake CA in a previous post, but a small, 6-unit complex on Auburn suddenly has two units available. I saw both of them on Sunday and if you like clean, contemporary lines these units are a real treat! The condos are located at 2714 Auburn between Rowena Avenue and Waverly Dr.. This 6-unit complex was originally built as apartments in the early 90's and converted to condos just a few years ago. The complex is in a great location. You're right across from Ivanhoe School and just a short walk to Edendale Grill, Blair's and The Coffee Table. Less than a mile and you're at Gelson's and Trader Joe's. That's nothing to complain about! Unit 4 is and upstairs light filled 3 bedroom, 2 bath of 1100sf with a balcony in the living room and one in the master bedroom. It's a front unit with stylish finishes including bamboo floors and stainless steel kitchen appliances. You also have inside laundry and central heat and air. What's not to like? This unit is currently listed for $539,000. If you prefer to live downstairs and farther off the street, unit #3 is another option. At 1140sf it is slightly larger than the upstairs unit and it's got a smaller price tag at $519,000. This unit shares the same bamboo floors, modern kitchen with Bosch appliances and butcher block countertops, inside laundry and central heat and air. HOA fees are a mere $289 and you get two parking spots with either unit plus an onsite gym. Honestly, they are both so nice I would have a hard time choosing between the two of them myself!
