1920s Bungalow on a Silver Lake Stair Street Asking $950K

By Pauline O’Connor

According to author Charles Fleming’s helpful and informative guidebook Secret Stairs, the hills of Silver Lake are laced with approximately 60 public staircases, dating back to the 1920s-40s, when LA was “well-served by trolleys, streetcars, buses, and light-rail systems.”

Accordingly, many homes that were built along staircase streets lack driveways and/or garages, and are accessible only via stairway, factors that can deter a fair number of house-hunters. But for those looking for something off the proverbial beaten path yet still within walking distance of shops and restaurants, a staircase-street house—such as this 1920s bungalow on Angelus Avenue now on the market—may be just the ticket.

Hidden from passers-by behind a high gate, the cottage contains two bedrooms, one bath, and an open-plan living room/dining room/kitchen area within its 832 square feet. Notable interior details include hardwood and tile floors, archways, built-ins, a living-room fireplace, and multiple French doors allowing for abundant natural light.

The property also features two spacious courtyard areas—one with a hot tub and fountain—along with a separate studio designed, per the listing, “for small scale music or film production.”

Asking price for the hillside home is $950,000. An open house is scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
