Property Description

Welcome to the Takahashi Residence, designed in 1967 by AIA architect Thomas Takahashi as his personal home. Perched atop the hills of Silver Lake, this pedigreed post + beam jewel box floats amongst the tree tops offering explosive, panoramic views of Griffith Observatory, Silver Lake Reservoir and the iconic Hollywood sign. Comprised of wood and walls of glass, this extraordinary architectural time capsule consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a studio space. A sanctuary in the sky, live a serene dream in this tree house like setting, surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature from every room. Period details include cork flooring, redwood decking, original cabinetry and formica countertops. Modern amenities include central A/C, heated tile flooring, and a water filtration system. Hovering over a 1/3 of an acre, containing lush grounds and gardens, Mr. Takahashi’s pottery kiln and studio still stand with a collection of his original work. The downward slope lot provides endless potential to create your own park or add an infinity edge pool. This RARE, once in a lifetime opportunity is your chance to own a piece of architectural history that cannot be duplicated again.
