This 1915 Silver Lake Craftsman on a corner lot is the one you’ve been waiting for. 1801 Micheltorena is a tranquil oasis perched above Sunset Blvd that’s been beautifully nurtured with creativity and entertaining in mind. Over the course of the current owners’ 20 year tenure, the home has been thoughtfully and lovingly remodeled in order to maintain its Craftsman character, while balancing that character with appropriately contemporary updates and ensuring an ever-inviting indoor-outdoor flow.

Set behind 8 foot privacy hedges and an ornate iron gate, the home is lined with original hardwood floors, has original built-ins with leaded glass, a gas fireplace with an entirely new chimney, and a reclaimed coffered ceiling in the dining room. From both indoors and outdoors, this home offers spectacular unobstructed views which can be enjoyed from nearly every room in the house.

The spacious primary suite has been outfitted with dual closets as well as a spa-inspired en-suite bath with a jacuzzi tub and steam shower.

Downstairs you’ll find two additional bedrooms and a spacious informal living room/office which can also be used as a 4th bedroom. These also come with custom closets, have their own private entrance, and are serviced by a stunning 2nd bathroom suite complete with soaking tub and frameless glass shower enclosure.

The exterior of this hillside home has been freshly landscaped and includes a multi-tiered wraparound deck with custom seating, stone and concrete patios, low-voltage illuminated walkways, and mature orange and grapefruit trees. Tucked in back you’ll find a 2nd large deck for entertaining, a flat grassy yard, as well as your very own sports court complete with views that stretch from Hollywood to the ocean.

Additional upgrades include a full home-energy efficiency retrofit (crawl spaces, attic, and walls insulated and sealed), a tastefully updated kitchen with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances, full home water softening system, tankless water heater, updated main electrical panel, updated main sewer line, earthquake retrofitting, LED smart lighting, Cat 5 wiring, and new HVAC with programmable Nest thermostat.

A new roof with owned solar panels was installed in 2022 as a part of the home’s energy efficiency overhaul. The detached 4 car garage comes with EV charging, custom storage cabinets, and a built-in work bench.

The layout of this property makes it ideal for the future development of an ADU which could potentially add up to 1200 sf of additional space, giving you the ultimate multi-generational compound.

Tucked into one of LA’s most desirable enclaves, 1801 Micheltorena is located north of Sunset between the Silver Lake Reservoir and Sunset Junction. Living here puts you in one of the city’s most vibrant and creative communities, and just seconds away from some of the best restaurants, bars, shops, live music, stairs, and outdoor activities Los Angeles has to offer.
