Also part of the original Rancho Los Feliz, Silverlake got its name from the Water Board Commissioner, Herman Silver that pushed to create the Silverlake Reservoir. Encouraging a sense of community, the Reservoir has a surrounding 2.2 mile path for walkers and joggers, a recreation center, and a dog park with separate areas for big and little pooches.
Home to the famous Sunset Junction, this area boasts an artistic vibe, open to all walks of life. Silverlake is considered to be the most socio-economic and ethnically diverse neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Second only to West Hollywood in same sex couples, the LGBT has a strong contingent here.
Located next to Los Feliz, Echo Park and Dodger Stadium, Silverlake is loaded with great restaurants, bars and boutiques. Next time you’re there try Reservoir for fantastic food, or CitySip L.A. for a glass of rare wine, or find your own bottle at the infamous Silverlake Wine.
Frank L. Wright and Richard Neutra are two notable architects who utilized the area as their canvas. Whether architectural significance in a single family home, first time ownership of an investment property, or a loft-like condo in the heart of the action, the home choices are as difference as its residence.
