2839 1/2 Avenel Street, Los Angeles, CA 90039


Visionary architect Gregory Ain, over 70 years ago, created what we are looking for today; elegance in design that is intricate, and presented with ease and simplicity. Avenel Homes (c. 1947) condominium in Silver Lake. The 992-square-foot unit in the modernist, 10-unit complex is a Cultural Monument listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is awaiting Mills Act approval. This rare offering features a flexible open floor plan, with today's desirable indoor/outdoor flow. Gregory Ain's original design and functionality come through highly flexible living spaces that can convert into 1, 2, or 3 bedrooms by way of sliding walls. Custom cabinetry designed by Richard Cutts Lundquist, AIA, includes couches and special pieces that define the interior environment. The thoughtfully remodeled kitchen is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and seamlessly opens up to the Great Room. The large patio off of the living room, possibly the largest of the complex, lets in breezes through expansive sliding glass doors and clerestory windows. Multiple planting and sitting areas are arranged in the garden. Located on a shady, tree-lined street and one block away from Ivanhoe Elementary, Avenel Homes is close to the best of Silver Lake; the Reservoir, shops, and restaurants on Rowena including Blair's, Edendale, and Little Pine.
