Rare Unit in Gregory Ain’s Avenel Cooperative Housing Up for Grabs in Silver Lake

By Wendy Bowman

Way back in the 1940s, a group of like-minded families pooled their resources, purchased a hillside parcel of land in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Silver Lake, and set out to create a network of 10 modestly sized apartments centered around indoor-outdoor living. Funded by the Federal Housing Administration and designed by notable modernist architect Gregory Ain, the resulting Avenel Cooperative Housing Project subsequently converted to condo ownership in 1991 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005; and though the homes rarely become available nowadays, one just popped up on the market with a relatively affordable (by L.A. standards) $1.3 million price tag.

The single-story condo unit up for grabs was built in 1947 and measures in at just under 1,000 square feet, and comes complete with built-in storage, linoleum floors and clerestory windows throughout. Innovative sliding wood partitions can be used to easily reconfigure the residential floorplan into one, two or three bedrooms — or you can even carve out extra space for a den, if you so desire. Particularly standing out is a spacious great room highlighted by an entire wall of sliding glass doors that open to reveal an expansive deck suitable for al fresco dining and entertaining amid picturesque views stretching from Griffith Observatory to the Silver Lake Hills.

Painstakingly Restored Greene & Greene House in Pasadena at a Fairly Reasonable Ask

By Laura Euler

Pasadena is well known among architecture aficionados for its astonishing Arts & Crafts-style houses, the most famous being the Gamble House, designed by architects Charles and Henry Greene, who designed a number of California-style Arts & Crafts houses in the area. This one, which has been through hell and back and is known as the William T. Bolton House, is now for sale via Matthew Berkley at Deasy Penner Podley for $5 million.

The spacious six-bedroom house sports six and a half bathrooms in 7,100 square feet. There are two kitchens, one on the first floor and another in the finished basement, plus a two-car garage and a guest house. At just over one-third of an acre, the lot is relatively compact but the property makes the most of its square footage with rustic and charming features, such as a dry creek bed.
