Silver Lake Real Estate Market Overview

Once a refuge for those priced out of the west side, Silver Lake has become the east side's crowning jewel of bourgie paradise. Historic midcentury modern homes are tucked away into the hillside, and there are always undiscovered neighborhoods to be found in hidden nooks and crannies, even for native Angelenos. Cold-pressed juice shops and whiskey bars reign supreme, jockeying for space alongside Danish furnitur...e shops and palo santo-scented boutiques. (Don't know what those are? You will if you move here.) The Silver Lake Reservoir offers both a peaceful slice of the outdoors and prime people-watching, while Sunset Junction is where you can find all the bright young things congregated for coffee and shop talk.View more

Insider Tips: Where to Go



Grab the (arguably) best breakfast in town at Sqirl - a pesto rice bowl or a thick slab of toast - then walk off the carbs at the beautifully renovated Reservoir.



Spend the afternoon shopping along Sunset Boulevard. Gawk at goods from Mohawk General Store, try on brass cuffs at Dream Collective, or pick up a gift for someone with impeccable taste from Hemingway & Pickett.



L.A. nights can be chilly, so slurp up a steaming bowl of ramen at Silver Lake Ramen, then throw back a glass of chilled rose and oysters on L&E Oyster Bar's patio.
