3038 Fernwood Avenue in Silver Lake

Tony Prince & his wife Gerri bought their home on 3038 Fernwood Avenue in 1964, for $32,000. At 1,200 sq. ft., it wasn’t a large house. Tucked on one of Silver Lake’s meandering terraced streets it emanates a naturally quiet and modest seclusion. But the Princes knew it was perfect for them–though cozy and intimate, this mid-century contemporary easily transformed for entertaining. Tony Prince would go on to live in 3038 Fernwood Avenue for 50 years, making close friends with movie stars and celebrities along the way.
