A piece of Silver Lake architecture worth seeing

Beautiful 1960s Japanese inspired reservoir new home If you have not had a chance to see the house at 2331 Cove Ave. in Los Angeles, take the opportunity while you can. Sometimes a house is simply worth seeing.  I go on a broker's caravan weekly to keep up with the new listings on the market. It's rare that I see one that makes me want to write a post about it but this one sure did! The land was first home to a 1906 bungalow, and is now home to the fabulous residence currently for sale 2331 Cove Ave. in Silver Lake. This home was designed by Alber Cooling, and was redesigned and enlarged for Edward A. "Tink" Adams and his family.  Adams founded the Los Angeles Art Center School in downtown Los Angeles in 1932, which is now the Pasadena -based Center College of Design, one of the Nation's major art colleges. Cooling was an instructor at the Art center during Adam's tenure there.  This house was built in 1966 and incorporates both International style and elements of traditional Japanese architecture.  In 1967 a cantilevered section  was designed by James De Long, an architect who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright. Silver Lake architectural homeGreat reservoir view Situated on a hill overlooking the Silver Lake reservoir, the house is mostly hidden from the street at the top of the Cove Ave Stairs coming up from Silver Lake Blvd. I have to say I was completely enchanted by the beautiful Japanese garden setting and peaceful ambiance. The house has great flow and the paper and wood sliders between rooms adds to the light and feel of openness. Even on a day as warm as it was the day I visited, the breeze flowed through the house like natural air conditioning.  It's an amazing property with wonderful views and plenty of outdoor living space. Now, if I could only afford the $1,750,000 price tag, it would take a lot to ever get me to leave the property! 2331 Cove view This house and other area homes of interest are featured in a book called  "Bohemian Modern"  By Barbara Bestor, Kimberly Stevens, Geoff McFetridge.  If you'd like more info about this property or other homes in the Silver Lake, Echo Park, Los Feliz, and surrounding areas, contact me directly at 213-215-4758 or check out LApropertySolutions.com Jenny Durling signature Jenny Durling Broker Associate L.A.
