Art Deco Brilliance by Architect William Kesling in Silver Lake | 1827 Fanning Street

This exquisite streamline moderne home was built by master architect William Kesling during his Los Angeles period. Kesling is perhaps Southern California’s most prolific practitioners of the Streamline Moderne style. One of only a handful of remaining Kesling’s built in Silver Lake between 1935 and 1937, the Wilson House is a fine expression of the Streamline Moderne style that Kesling brought within reach of the average homebuyer in 1936 (the original cost was just $3,590). Set on a large and verdant hillside lot, this one-of-a-kind home is not to be missed.

The home sold recently for the first time in 57 and has since been artfully renovated for the 21st century although the tri-level home still retains some original features, including bands of windows, hardwood floors, Art Deco tile, walls of glass, and curving staircases and railings.

The sun-drenched and expansive living room is beautifully detailed with a geometric hearth, and sliding glass doors that open to the viewing deck, revealing incredible views of the Silver Lake hills.

The glorious and sophisticated kitchen has been entirely remodeled and updated with stylish cabinetry and all new appliances.

Gorgeous hardwood floors flow throughout this special home.

The viewing deck is the perfect spot for al fresco dining. Add a heat lamp or two and enjoy lounging here all year round.

A beautiful curving staircase transports you upstairs where two ensuite bedrooms await, each with deck access and abundant light.

The Master boasts lovely and calming views of the Silver Lake Reservoir.

A sequence of rounded walls, iconic elements of the Streamline style, usher you toward the second bedroom.

The second bedroom has spades of high style on offer.

Each of the baths have grey terrazzo tile mosaic and artful fittings.

On the expansive lower level, an inspiring third bedroom with a fireplace can function as your guest room, a home office, or writers studio.

A large den on this level is a perfect spot for lounging with friends and family.

And now onto the incredible one-of-a-kind outdoor space. The hardscape and covered patio features a bespoke indoor/outdoor petite pool. 1827 Fanning Street is the only home that Kesling gave this special spa-like feature and referred to it as the “Roman Bath.” It’s the ultimate in luxury and sure to be a hit with friends all year round, day or night.

The street-to-street lot zoned R2 presents an opportunity for future development.

The home was the longtime residence of 20th century philanthropists and socialites Nadia and Norman Kaplan, celebrated members of the Silver Lake community and founders of “Wayfinder,” a non-profit foundation.
