A very fine contractor-designed example of the Mid-Century Style. Built in 1956, this lovely home boasts a magnificent lake view, four bedrooms and three baths and 3,589 square feet of living space.In 2007, I began communicating via email with Martin Schall the now-celebrated German photographer whose frequent visits to Los Angeles were the subject of a ‘‘Los Angeles Times‘ article written by Times Staff Writer Cara Mia DiMassa on April 11, 2007. Martin, admiring this handsome residence on Redcliff Street asked me if I could help identify the architect. A search of old building permits at the Los Angeles Department of Building & Safety revealed the surprising fact that this much-admired home was not architect-designed. I have substituted one of my photographs of the Eugene Woods Residence for one taken by Martin Schall (visit his website at www.you-are-here.com).
(Martin will be visiting L.A. again in October 2007 and is planning a ‘Silver Lake Special’ on his website!)
The Eugene Woods Residence is located at 2073 Redcliff Street in the Moreno Highlands neighborhood of Silver Lake.
