A Hidden Mount Washington Bungalow

After saying farewell to her 50s pad in Silver Lake, Grasie moved into a classic Mount Washington bungalow. Built circa 1948, the structure sits above the street, hidden from passersby behind a blanket of mature trees.

As her home hits the market, Grasie shares what it’s like to live in her modestly sized two-bedroom space.

A circular driveway takes you inside, where light floats around a superb floor plan that prioritizes form and function. After closing escrow, Grasie spent the next few months collaborating with Sol Design to bring to life the residential gem she imagined.

Grasie: “I completely changed the bathroom. The bathroom before was a little bit all over the place, y’know, with five different kinds of tile. I wanted a softer, more cohesive bathroom with a bigger tub.

I did a good amount of work in the kitchen. The kitchen tile was a little too busy for my taste. I wanted to streamline that. Green is my favorite color, so I went with green tile in the kitchen. I added new countertops because I really love white countertops. I added all new sleek appliances—and brass details throughout the home. 

I think the kitchen and bathroom complement each other well. The kitchen is a little more masculine, and the bathroom is a little more feminine.”

Today, the interior feels calm and cohesive with stylish touches, including Ceppo Rosa marble with an integrated sink in the bathroom, Kohler fixtures, and stainless steel Forte appliances. 

While adding a new roof, Grasie removed an overhang covering the patio. This brightens the outdoor space and lets natural light into the primary bedroom, with large glass sliders connecting to the backyard. The terraced backyard has multiple entertaining areas, including a pergola on the top level where “you see beautiful sunsets.”

And the neighborhood? 

Grasie: “Oh, this neighborhood is the f***ing best. I’m close to many incredible restaurants like Queen Street, Capri Club, and Dunsmoor. And remote enough to feel like I’m in the middle of nowhere.”

Private showings start this weekend.
