Designed by Eugene Kinn Choy, this quintessential mid-century has been thoughtfully restored, honoring the architect’s original intent.
Choy was the first Chinese-American architect in California to join the American Institute of Architects. At the helm of Choy Associates, he designed many of Chinatown’s commercial and public structures, including Cathay Bank, which is applauded for merging New Formalism with traditional Chinese decorative elements.
Clad in redwood, the home sits on the southwest side of the Silver Lake Reservoir at 3200 Windsor Avenue. Features inside the two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath include vaulted beam ceilings, a fireplace surrounded by redwood paneling, and a galley-style kitchen off to the side. Off the living room is a sunroom framed in glass leading out to the backyard.
Last sold in 2013 for $831,000, the home also has a converted garage for a home office or recording studio. The asking price is $1,379,000.
