Located in the hills of Silver Lake, the Hawk House by Harwell Hamilton Harris perfectly captures the ever-enviable indoor-outdoor connection.
Built for Edward (Stan) Hawk in 1939, the house is often compared to Harris’ Blair House. Both places are “compositions of boxlike masses, abutting each other in unexpected ways.” Wrapping the exterior in redwood siding, Harris reversed the interior floor plan by designing a series of cubes that unfold from the inside out. The entrance level opens up to the living room, dining area, and kitchen, and the two well-proportioned bedrooms and one bath are downstairs.
Noteworthy features include walls of glass, hardwood floors, a brick fireplace, built-in shelving, patio and outdoor terraces extending the living spaces into nature, and a balcony where you can enjoy iconic picture-postcard views of the Silver Lake Reservoir and surrounding hills, Lautner’s recently re-vamped Silvertop, the Griffith Park Observatory, and Hollywood Sign.
Located at 2421 Silver Ridge Ave (across from R.M. Schindler‘s How House,) the Hawk House, listed by Barry Sloane & Marc Silver, seeks $1.295 million.
