1940s Post & Beam in Silver Lake – 2683 Ivan Hill Terrace

Built in 1947, this mid-century modern post & beam is a joy for the senses. Located in the heart of Silver Lake, this stylish three bedroom home features wood floors, walls of glass, and lovely redwood built-ins, terraced gardens, and a large patio.

The home is just one of two residences designed by the influential modernist Alvin Lustig. An apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, Lustig is most known for his recognizable book covers and furniture designs. The home was constructed for William Thomas, a friend of Lustig’s.

Set up from the street, this wonderful example of California Modernism offers lovely views of the Silver Lake hills.  The living room opens to a long, covered deck that overlooks the neighborhood.

Unique mid-century modern yet timeless touches abound, like this wood panel that help to create two distinct areas. The panel includes a magazine or record rack.

You will notice elegant wood accents throughout.

The classy no frills kitchen features custom cabinetry and vintage stainless steel appliances.

The first bedroom boasts windows on two sides creating an elegant sunny space.

The home’s full bath has been restored with a chic and simple design.

The second and third bedrooms share a similar mid-century modern look and feel.

2638 Ivan Hill Terrace also offers a separate 300 square foot studio space below the house has its own entrance. Currently set up as a music and recording space, the possibilities for it are endless.

The”glass box” design brings the outdoors inside through walls of glass and intersecting Redwood trellises. Notice the large patio below, perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining.

Sitting on a 6,397-square-foot lot, the outdoor spaces have been maximized for their full potential.

Spend a day at the Silver Lake Meadow and then head over LaMille for a cappuccino or L&E Oyster Bar for happy hour. The next owners will be in the middle of it all, not to mention inside the coveted Ivanhoe Elementary School District.
