The sibling duo, Kevin and Hardy Wronske, of Heyday Partnership specialize in building architecturally delightful homes under the small lot ordinance all over the city of Los Angeles. One of their small-lot homes in Silver Lake returns to the market, and it’s seriously dope.
The small lot ordinance allows existing single-family lots with specific zoning to be subdivided into smaller parcels. Auburn is Heyday’s first small lot project in Silver Lake. It’s a collection of six LEED Platinum Certified Homes built in 2015.
The homes are located across the street from Ivanhoe Elementary School and near popular spots like Edendale Grill, Little Pine, Wolfdown, and Blair’s, Raven Yoga, Broome Street Coffee, and the Silver Lake Reservoir are also nearby.
Yet, even though you’re in the mix of a lively urban setting, Auburn is tucked on a smaller side street, affording a sense of peace and calm.
A curbside view shows the custom Honduran encaustic tile inlaid around the windows. Inside, the 1,733 square feet of living space spans three levels and includes three bedrooms and two-and-a-half baths.
You enter on the first floor, which also offers direct garage access. The second floor contains an open living, dining, and kitchen space with features that include a dramatic one-of-a-kind skylight design, hardwood flooring throughout, custom millwork, and tons of built-ins.
The bedrooms are on the third floor, with the primary suite oriented toward the views. And, when you make your way to the rooftop patio, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of Griffith Observatory and the Silver Lake hills.
