Tour a Los Angeles Bungalow That
Brings the Outdoors In

By Reagan Miller

This cottage is a hidden delight. It’s virtually invisible from the street, tucked into the sharp slope of a small side street in Silver Lake, shrouded by a wall, shaded by drooping willows and burly bushes. It’s a treehouse tucked into the Los Angeles hills. The bones are monochromatic: stark white walls, brunette hardwoods and poured concrete flooring, black and white tile work in the bathroom and kitchen. The light-filled second story feels more outdoors than in, with wide picture windows and double doors that open onto the jewel of this house—a rooftop deck with panoramic views of Los Angeles, including Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory, and downtown.

We stepped inside this hillside cottage, currently listed by ACME, to glimpse its SoCal style.

The second story, connected to the first by a black spiral staircase, spills out onto the splendid southern California landscape. The neutral color palette allows the home to recede into its environment, uncompetitive with the 360-degree views.

The kitchen is understated, with a monochromatic backdrop and herringbone tile backsplash that perfectly balance the basics and the details.

The home’s three bedrooms are simple, each with plenty of privacy and plenty of light and expansive views of the outdoors. We love the minimalist style of this home, its ability to elevate the carefully curated furnishings and yet disappear into the surrounding landscape.
