Create a truly memorable & filmic experience by staying in this spectacular new architectural home perched on the hillside of Silver Lake. The camera flows through huge sliding glass doors onto decks overlooking the Silver Lake Reservoir with the Griffith Park Observatory and Hollywood Sign beyond. The camera gazes across the shimmering water to look through John Lautner's masterpiece home, Silvertop.
As the camera pans inside, you will see rooms designed by the architect, Tom Marble, who drew inspiration from both Frank Lloyd Wright and John Lautner’s use of hexagonal geometry to bring in light and create flow in multiple directions, inviting you into spaces both severe and surprising: with no right angles, this home dares to truly think outside the box.
The interior is a spectacular flowing space that belies its modest area of just 1100 square feet, with custom built-ins give the home a nautical feel, as if you are in a boat floating above the reservoir. And despite the steel structure, the spaces take on a more exotic flavor, aided by the Japanese decor, the king size bed floating on tatami mats, and a living room with comfortable pull out couch and TV.
Enchanted by the diamond-shaped master bath, the camera dissolves between a shower gleaming with golden tiles and a large bath with its own unobstructed view to Silver Lake. A jump-cut to the kitchen reveals a series of vignettes of stainless countertops and appliances, a Viking Stove, and a warm travertine peninsula atop Douglas Fir cabinets whose shape resonates with same hexagonal geometry.
The camera follows you out of the house, down the flowing steps to Silver Lake Reservoir itself, capturing perhaps a romantic walk to a coffee shop, restaurant, or bar; it follows you as you pass the dog park then stop by the meadow where you see athletes stretching, kids playing and flying kites, hipsters communing in circles.
This has to be one of the most beautiful places in Southern California.
Located 15 minutes from Hollywood, 45 minutes from LAX, 45 minutes to Santa Monica , and 15 minutes to downtown.

His kitchen is very great, condiment is very full, we have three days is to cook to eat.
Estimation is all tenants of all kinds of food and seasoning, what kind of taste can be.
We see China's sauces and help to add some tableware is not much.
Under a tenant if use "chopsticks", that is our!
The master bedroom balcony looks great, can see the "silverlake", "Griffith observatory" and "Hollywood hills".
Night view is so beautiful!
Next time will come!
It was wonderful, better than described. It felt like a second home, beautiful views very comfortable, and Tim was just great and made us feel very welcome.
Beautiful house - great location....everything was clean and better than in the pictures! I really can't describe how beautiful the views were in this place, it was like no home I'd stayed in before. Perfect for a fun LA get away! Thanks so much Tim - I look forward to staying again in the future!
Tim is a wonderful, thoughtful host, and his house is breathtaking. Great neighborhood (a few blocks from the Red Lion and Silverlake Wine!), stunning, extremely comfortable home, and magnificent decks for relaxing and absorbing the beautiful views. We had to keep pinching ourselves. Never wanted to leave. Thank you so, so much, Tim, for sharing your home with us!
Incredible views, super modern (yet warm) architecture. Loved the sliding glass walls. Even though it was in the 80s everyday, the cross ventilation made the home very comfortable. This is the type of place that makes you want to move to LA. Tim was very quick and accommodating in his communication. Will try and stay here every time I go back to LA.
We made a road trip and to calm down a little bit at the end we stayed at Tim's beautiful house.
It is quiet there, but also very central.
The view is amazing, and the kitchen has everything you need.
We were hearing the guests in the apartment on top of us when they were walking around, but that was ok, because they were sleeping at night as well ;)
We really enjoyed that beautiful place and would definitely come back again !
This place was amazing! i wish i could live here!! It is very modern and has amazing views. Big sliding doors that open up the patio and bring in great california air! Tim was super nice and always responsive! he greeted me as i arrived and showed me around! ( most airbnb places just leave you a key!) the patio facing the lake is absolutely amazing i love the couch on the deck! over all i would stay here again in a heart beat and was a little sad to leave! OH also time has a full set of cast irons ( im a big fan of cooking on cast irons so this made me very happy!! ) Over all a very magical stay!
