One of those lakes—Lake Hollywood—is just a few stone throws away from 3585 Wonder View Drive, where this marvelous Spanish Colonial Revival is situated.

2173 Redcliff Street in Silver Lake

2173Redcliff-001-webThe self-built home of architect, Albert P. Martin, AIA, went on the market for the first time since he and his wife broke ground more than 50 years ago. Built in 1952, the Martin family home is sited on a 9,315-square-foot hillside lot, with three bedrooms, three baths, an office and artist’s studio, formal living and dining rooms, a workshop, two-car garage, and a wraparound deck with amazing views of the Silver Lake reservoir and beyond.
