3228 Fernwood Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90039



Published in more than a dozen books (including “Another 100 of the World’s Best Houses”) and featured in both the NY Times and LA Times, this architectural gem is a residence you'll be proud to call your own. Exuding effortless style and class, this masterpiece crafted by Lorcan O'Herlihy, is set in the heart of Silver Lake on a peaceful street with west-facing views from the Hollywood Hills to Santa Monica. On a clear day you can see through to the ocean! Inside the impressive 1,976-sq ft interior, an open layout is infused with natural light that sweeps through full-height wood-trimmed windows framing spectacular vistas. Your living room, dining area, den, and kitchen are seamlessly connected so you can easily transition from unwinding in the warmth of the Heath tiled fireplace to sharing intimate meals. French doors lead to your private balcony allowing an ideal blend of indoor/outdoor living. Equal parts efficient and elegant, the kitchen has stainless steel appliances, ample prep space, and open upper-level cabinetry. Its thoughtful design keeps the home cook engaged with guests and inspired by sweeping panoramas. The first-floor bedroom can be utilized as an oversized bedroom suite or split into two bedrooms with a sliding floor to ceiling partition. With the partition closed off, you have a flexible 3rd bedroom or home office. Overlooking the city, the generously sized primary suite has a walk-in closet, a wall of glass showcasing the dramatic skyline, and direct access to a luxurious terrace. If you love entertaining, the outdoor space includes 600 sqft of incredible uninterrupted views of Los Angeles, as well as a secluded rear patio offering a tranquil setting where you and your guests can unwind around the outdoor fireplace. A perfect spot to add your cedar tub. An added plus is parking for 2 vehicles with an electric charging station. With distinctive wood details throughout, this impeccable modernist residence is as stylish as it is functional. The desirable location places you within walking distance to the reservoir, Sunset Junction, iconic restaurants and shops. This marks the first time this home has ever been offered for sale, as the sellers had the home commissioned for themselves and their family.
