This 1947 French Normandy home has been off the market for more than 48 years! Updated with modern systems, this special home retains the character details & grandeur of its vintage, with postcard views of the Hollywood Sign & Griffith Observatory. The large entry has a sophisticated domed ceiling & moldings that continue throughout the formal spaces and opens to an adjacent dining room with rich hardwood floors. The connected living room is grand in scale, elegant in styling, and perfect for entertaining with a stately fireplace. Off the living room is a private hall with two large bedrooms each with walk-in closets & a shared bath; the primary bedroom has the perfect nook for a bed & sliding doors to the brick terrace. The kitchen has been thoughtfully updated with recently lacquered teal cabinets & grey stone floors, and the attached breakfast room has a bay window with views of the lush front garden. Through the service porch is access to the den/convertible 3rd bedroom with 3/4 bath, kitchenette, and balcony; with a separate entrance, this space provides endless possibilities. Below the den is a 2-car garage & hidden 600 square foot bonus storage room. The home is sited on a corner lot above the street allowing privacy & substantial flat yard space with a verdant lawn, sunny area for raised vegetable boxes, & a spacious brick terrace for al fresco dining. This gracious character home is in an outstanding Silver Lake location & provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Listed by Matt Mc Intyre, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California Properties.
