Large 2-bedroom Spanish home heart of Silverlake
The yard is spectacular and the gardener comes weekly.
There is a boatload of storage; three large wardrobe closets, linen storage, built in cabinets and shelves in the bathroom and in the laundry room. There is well-lit off-street parking for 1-2 cars behind the house.
The large step-down living room is bathed in light; it has high stenciled beam ceilings, built-in bookshelves, and large LCD television. The step-up formal dining room has original wall sconces and Spanish style chandelier, and is quite large. The kitchen is brand new with new cabinetry, new Frigidaire dishwasher and gas range, new sink and faucets, and new black granite counter tops. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed with down comforter and duvet, a large dresser, a large desk, and 2 night stands; the 2nd bedroom has two new twin beds with comforters, a night stand and a large dresser. You have the option of converting this to a King Bed set up with advance notice and for a small fee. This bedroom has a private entrance to the parked cars for convenience. The private laundry room has full sized washer and gas dryer. There is an iron and ironing board. It is perfect for a small family.
Glendale Boulevard is a main artery connecting the town of Glendale to Downtown Los Angeles and can be busy at times.
Edendale's hilly streets and nearby lake lent themselves to many silent movie gags. The district's heyday as the center of the motion picture industry was in the 1910s. By the 1920s, the studios had moved elsewhere, mostly to Hollywood, which would come to supplant it as the "movie capital of the world."
Edendale was known as such at least until 1940, as the Pacific Electric Railway operated an Edendale Line of its famous "red cars" that ran the 5-mile (8.0 km) course between Downtown Los Angeles and the top of Edendale. The red car ran down the median of Allesandro Avenue (Glendale Blvd.), which was double-tracked, and even triple-tracked between Sunset and Effie, as the tracks were also used by the interurban Glendale-Burbank Line. After 1940, the Edendale Line as such ceased, though service continued in the form of local service on the Glendale-Burbank Line. Rail service on that line ended completely in 1955, and the tracks have been abandoned.
The name Edendale is no longer used as a place name, and is little known today. Two of the few remnants of the name are the local post office (officially called Edendale Station) and a public library branch. Although many of the structures from the 1910s remain and can be identified by careful comparison with old photos, this district today is an unremarkable commercial zone called the "Glendale Boulevard Corridor" known mostly for its function as a commuter thoroughfare between the southern end of the Glendale Freeway and downtown Los Angeles.

"Great for families! The house is just as described, and such a good deal for all the space and amenities. A hotel suite would have set us back at least $300 more per night! We wanted to be in Silverlake to be near friends that we were visiting, so this was the perfect base for us, but proximity to downtown and Hollywood would make this a good location for anyone sightseeing in Hollywood or getting around cultural activities downtown. The owners are really nice and so helpful. What they don't say in their description is that the owner is also a real estate agent who has tremendous knowledge of local sights and shops, and good tips on getting around to avoid traffic! We don't have a pet, but noticed the front yard is all fenced in, which would make a pet owner very happy. But we do have little kids, and the brand new co-sleeper and booster seat were just what we needed to keep the stress of traveling without all of our kid-gear really easy. And having a full (and very nice) kitchen + washer/dryer with little children made the trip so easy and completely manageable. Thank you -- no more hotels for us :)"
