You don’t have to have a mansion in Beverly Hills or Hollywood Hills to get the morning coffee sipping, smile-inducing view you’ve always wanted. From many of our Silver Lake houses for sale, you can get views of the rolling hills around the neighborhood or views of the actual “lake” in Silver Lake (Silver Lake Reservoir), and some spectacular Downtown Los Angeles vistas. The great thing about Silver Lake is that you can walk to just about anything. The primary commercial area along Sunset Blvd. is where you’ll find the cozy coffee shops and lovable boutique shops that Silver Lake is famous for. Places like Casbah Café, Intelligentsia, and all sorts of great shops in the Sunset Junction area are perfect for a free afternoon to enjoy the weather and take in some people watching with a healthy juice or cup of coffee. Nestled between Echo Park and Los Feliz, the trendy community known as one of “the city’s hippest neighborhoods” boasts some of the nation’s most lauded food trucks and Farmers Markets, a multicultural blend of residents with eclectic professions and a booming arts scene. Since the 1990s, Silver Lake has become the center of the alternative and indie rock scene in Los Angeles. Places to check out in Silver Lake include comedy or music at The Echo, the well preserved kitschy tinseltown Vista Theater, and Elysian Park. Another part of town is the highly diverse Los Feliz neighborhood. Los Feliz perseveres despite the burden of being America’s most hyped neighborhood. Los Feliz has become home to many celebrities and their agents. The area north of Los Feliz Boulevard below Griffith Park is commonly referred to as the Los Feliz Hills. Here you’ll find multi-million dollar playpens on the Los Feliz Hills, as well as crowded studio apartment buildings lining Vermont and Hillhurst Avenues. With an average household income of $196,585, the Hills are one of the wealthiest areas of Los Angeles. This upper-middle class, family-friendly community is close to museums and LA’s most beloved attractions: the Los Angeles Zoo, Griffith Park, The Greek Theater, and Travel Town. There’s a democratic quality to hedonistic pursuits here, and it’s not uncommon to see your favorite celebrity catching a film at the Vista or grabbing a bite on Hillhurst. Whether you’re enjoying the world’s best breakfast dish (the smoked salmon stack at the Alcove Café) or enjoying a divey round of dirty photo hunt at the Drawing Room, Los Feliz is the perfect place for brunch, booze, and the pursuit of happiness. Figaro Bistrot on Vermont squeezes in thirsty hipsters. Malo on Sunset has an industrial-looking, surprisingly intimate outdoor seating area with heating lamps. The Dresden Room solidified its fame with a cameo in 1996’s prerequisite LA film, Swingers, and comes with its very own longstanding lounge act. For a hiking adventure, hit the trails at Ferndell, Mount Hollywood, or Mount Lee (the Hollywood Sign).
