About this listing
We have a very unique little single unit cabin on our property in Silver lake, it has a log cabin feel. When inside, you feel as if you were in Big Sur or some other remote, mountainous location, until you step out onto the back porch and see the view of all Hollywood, the hills, the sign, Griffith Park observatory, and all the way out to the coast, THEN you're reminded where you are.
We have built a little kitchenette with a hot plate, refrigerator, electric kettle with assorted teas and coffee, it's the perfect size for preparing simple meals.
There is a private bathroom which we've just outfitted with imported moroccan tiles.
There is a private entrance for guests, the cabin is separated from the main house by a walkway, it's very private, but only a few feet from house. Your back deck is connected to our back deck by a small staircase.
There is internet.
Convenient street parking.
There is a television with a wide variety of dvds, however we do not offer cable TV.
We are located right on the border of Echo Park and Silver lake, so we are smack in the middle of downtown Los Angeles and Hollywood. A stones throw from Los Feliz, a 5 minute walk to shops and delicious eateries and a 1 minute drive to get on the 101 freeway, so by car, just a couple minutes to downtown and hollywood (traffic permitting).
My wife and I both work in entertainment and the property is very conducive to that type of living, the house has always been inhabited by artists, musicians, filmmakers etc.
I have spent the majority of my life traveling in and around foreign countries, and when we have time off from work that's exactly what we do. I've been a guest a hundred times, and hosted people hundreds of times.
This neighborhood is very very unique, it's hip and eclectic and filled with culture, exactly the kind of place you'd want to see if visiting here for the 1st or the 20th time, it's not a neighborhood that a tour bus will bring you to (not yet anyway), just lots of young people doing lots of interesting things. It's a busy place, very productive, there's always a new gallery opening, a new restaurant opening, new bars, movies filming etc.
I have lived in LA for almost 13 years and there's no other neighborhood I'd live in.
