2845 1/2 Avenel Street, Los Angeles, CA 90039


Avenel Homes (c. 1947) condominium in Silver Lake, designed by Gregory Ain. The 1114-square foot unit in the modernist, 10-unit complex is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This rare offering features a flexible open floor plan and today's desirable indoor/outdoor flow. Gregory Ain's original design and functionality come through the highly flexible living spaces that can convert into 1, 2, or 3 bedrooms by way of sliding walls. The thoughtfully remodeled kitchen with plywood cabinets, Formica counters, a sub-zero refrigerator, and top-of-the-line appliances seamlessly opens to the Great Room. Cabinetry has been designed to define spaces with additional storage, a desk, and a built-in dining table. The Great Room has been made larger in this unit, offering views of the Silver Lake hills. The patio off of the living room lets in inviting breezes throughout the unit through the enormous sliding glass door and the clerestory windows. One of the bedrooms has direct access to a private enclosed patio space. 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, and shops and restaurants on Rowena, such as Blair's and Edendale. Visionary architect Gregory Ain created over 70 years ago what we are looking for today; elegance in design that is complicated but comes across with ease and simplicity.
