Ensconced on a hilltop on a rare street to street lot, this wonderful Mediterranean home has not been on the market for over 30 years. Being on top of the hill on Silver Lake’s prime west-side of the lake affords this residence a nearly 360 degree view with vistas of the lake, the downtown skyline and far in the distance, the Angelus Crest Mountains. To the west, one can see the shimmer off the ocean water in the distance, the Griffith Park Observatory and the infamous Hollywood sign.

Designed by Architect, Armand Monaco for the original owner, Cesar Fornada in 1937, this superb design has a formal entry leading to a stunning living room with a fireplace and mantel that compliments the style of the home. The formal dining room faces west with views, and boasts a veranda to bring in even more light.

A third bedroom with ¾ bath is convenient for guests off the main floor hallway. Hardwood floors flow throughout the home and upstairs offers 2 large bedrooms with closets galore and a full bath with its’ own built-in vanity. Stunning vistas abound from both sides of the second floor and the upper terrace. Morning coffee while viewing the lake is so enticing; it may become an everyday habit!
