We check out all the homes that come on the market on the Eastside .
This is a curated collection of the coolest and most interesting.
Some are architecturally significant, others fixers with potential or deals.
2737 Angus Street
This home is in the award winning Ivanhoe Elementary school district and is just north of the Silver Lake Reservoir. Having a flat lot close to 12,000 square feet with views both north and south is very rare. The pool, quiet street, off-street parking for more than four cars sweeten the deal even more . The house itself is a 4br/5ba with the Master Bedroom french doors opening south to the Silver Lake Reservoir. You can catch a glimpse of it now in the spring but it will be more prominent in the fall. The two second floor guest rooms have mountain views to the Northeast. This is a great home for a larger family, walking distance to the park with sections for the kids, runners and dogs both large and small.
Listing Price: $2,598,000

2416 Silver Lake Drive
And last and certainly not the least, is this mid-century beauty on the also in the Ivanhoe Elementary School district. This property was built Gilbert Leong in 1954.
This house has an extraordinary flow and feel to it. Making you feel like you're back in the 50's. They spacious floor plan is full of vintage details from the floating cement hearth to the kitchen built ins and garbage chutes.
This has deep roots in Los Angeles. Owned by Delbert E. Wong and his wife Dolores Wong, they both have incredible stories.
Delbert Wong, according to an LA Times article from 2013 states
"He was the first Chinese American graduate of Stanford Law School and the first Chinese American judge to be appointed to the bench in the continental United States." - LA TIMES
HIs wife, Delores, worked as a psychiatric social worker all over the country but her most satisfying contribution was to help fund and establish the first public library in Los Angeles Chinatown.
