My Debut on Apartment Therapy LA!


Yours truly is a featured House Tour on Apartment Therapy LA today. And people love me! Thank you to the Apartment Therapy readers who have left lovely comments about me.

How did this happen? Well, when I started my blog, I contacted Apartment Therapy just to say hello. You know. Hello, I'm a house and I started my own blog. Anyway, Gregory Han wrote back to say, "Cool blog. Would you be interested in a house tour?" It was as simple as that. Two weeks ago Gregory (who happens to live in Silver Lake) came to see me and took lots and lots of photos. He has a wonderful eye and his photos, if I may say, are simply delicious. I especially like the close up of the Little Red Riding Hood cookie jar head. (A story for another day.)

Here is what Gregory writes about his visit to 2471 Silver Ridge:

"Sitting ontop of winding section of Silver Lake known as Silver Ridge, the home of nearby neighbors Stephanie and Bob Walker affords the couple a near 180 degree view of Los Angeles that stretches from the Hollywood Sign across to nearby Glendale, and all the way to the eastern most San Gabriel Mountains. Although the home is modest in size by modern standards, the home feels expansive thanks to the open floor plan, a liberal amount of large windows and the thoughtful placement of furnishings that are all accentuated by individual colour schemes for each room that runs the gamut from bold and graphical to subtle and soothing." - Gregory Han (AT LA)

Oh, HOW I'm blushing!

So, I have a crush... on a house that is way out of my league. It began as pure admiration and has grown into love. This amazing home is located just up the street from me at 2422 Silver Ridge Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90039. Designed by Rudolph M. Schindler with landscaping by Richard Neutra, there's plenty to admire. The house was built in 1925 and is considered a Schindler Masterpiece. It even has a proper name: How House.

Yes, 2422 is definitely out of my league. I admit that. But I can't help but drool. And can you really blame me? Especially now that I've seen pictures of the interior. How, you ask? Well, because the How House is on the market (for a cool $4,995,000) and the pictures are easily accessible to any curious house... or person, for that matter.

Take a look for yourself:
