Hotel architect R. C. Ferguson built three of the many bungalows that line a famous stair street in Silver Lake. One of them recently hit the market.
Perched high above the city, Loma Vista Place is only accessible on foot. The home is built on a “long, narrow, steep set of stairs. On one side of the hill there are six flights of 166 stairs. On the other, there are ten flights of 182. Residents’ cars and waste bins are parked at the bottom on either side” reports KCET.
Dating back to when silent films and the Pacific Electric Railway still existed, this large one bedroom offers a mix of retro details and modern upgrades.
Measuring 752 square feet, the inside offers a wood-paneled living and dining room combo featuring a vintage fireplace. The newly renovated kitchen is equipped with a Subzero fridge and has granite counters and a large skylight. Penny tile is a highlight of the updated bathroom.
Outside is filled with mature trees, meandering brick paths, several outdoor patios, garden beds, and a fully functional claw foot tub where you can soak and enjoy views of the mountains.
There’s plenty of street parking close to Whole Foods 365, the Silver Lake Reservoir, and other neighborhood shops and restaurants.
Located at 2302 Loma Vista Pl, this home last sold in 2008 for $419,000. After just eight days on the market, it’s in escrow. Listed by John Seffker, asking $639,000.
