Architect Ray V. Otero selected a hillside lot in Silver Lake affording dramatic city views and built this lovely post and beam in 1961. Highlighted by high ceilings and walls of glass, the residence expresses Otero’s modernist ethic.

A graduate of the University of Southern California School of Architecture, Otero designed his personal residence up the street a few houses at 1986 Lucile Avenue; he also did extensive remodeling of a home at 2215 Micheltorena Street. In the Los Feliz area, he designed and buillt a home at 2209 Live Oak Drive and another on Valley Oak Drive. He currently resides in Tulsa, OK.
