Set high above Silverwood Terrace at the end of a cul-de-sac, the long, winding, and gated driveway offers security and comfort and the transportive feeling that one is entering a highly exclusive, rarely seen property.

The property has been in the same family for over thirty years and is only making its debut on the real estate market in 2020.

The Memphis Group was an Italian design and architecture group founded by Ettore Sottsass in 1980 that designed Postmodern furniture, fabrics, ceramics, glass, and metal objects. The Memphis group’s work often incorporated was characterized by ephemeral design featuring colorful and abstract decoration as well as asymmetrical shapes, sometimes arbitrarily alluding to exotic or earlier styles. Fans of this artistic movement are in for a surprise as the sale of the property includes a sculpture by renowned artist and Echo Park resident Peter Shire.

The sharp, asymmetrical lines and the innovative design are apparent immediately upon entry.

The living room features incredible reservoir views from a wall-to-wall picture window. The home was designed and built to capture the vistas from each and every room of the house.

The living room is even more romantic at night. The views become art in and of themselves in a home already brimming with artistic vision. The living room also has a fireplace and recessed display cases for exhibiting sculptures, a collection of Phaidon and Taschen books, Bergamot candles, or other important items of your choice.

The formal dining room opens to a courtyard and has direct views of the original Peter Shire sculpture.

The cook’s kitchen features rows of skylights, a gigantic center island, an eat-in area, and a wok station.

A charming breakfast nook has outdoor access to the tennis court making it the perfect spot for a cup of coffee and a glass of orange juice before a morning match.

The home also has a sunken den that is a cozy spot to enjoy a film or a fire with friends and family.

The large master suite has the home’s third and final fireplace and enjoys perhaps the best views of the reservoir from anywhere on the estate.

The unique master bath includes both a soaking tub and a huge walk-in shower with a skylight.

The second and third bedrooms also enjoy stunning views and open up to courtyards and patios.

The home’s outdoor spaces provide an ample amount of Southern California indoor/outdoor flow with multiple entertaining areas to admire the views from nearly Silver Lake’s highest vantage point.

The property provides plenty of room to explore and to grow. There is also a garage a studio space with private entry, two two-car garages plus plenty of parking for party guests, lush and tranquil gardens, and fully owned solar panels that help to create a home that is eco-friendly and self-sufficient.

The luxurious heated pool and spa offer the ultimate respite in the summer seat.

This estate may be the property with the most acreage in all of Silver Lake.

1844 Silverwood Terrace presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind property unlike any other on the market today.
