Architecture For Sale In Silver Lake: deasy/penner’s Barry Gray To Represent Historic Gregory Ain Unit

Los Angeles, CA (March 5, 2009) deasy/penner&partners( ),a Southern California-based luxury real estate firm focusing on design-centric and architecturally significant homes and estates, is pleased to announce that Senior Partner & Agent Barry Gray will be exclusively representing a unit in the Avenel Cooperative House Project, designed by Gregory Ain—in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles.

Designed in 1947 by the famed native Los Angeles architect, the 10-unit Avenel Cooperative House Project helped define Los Angeles as the center of the Modernist movement in American domestic architecture. The project adapted the best features of a hillside commune, garden apartments, and suburban houses. The whole was rendered in International Style modern architecture with radically flexible interiors. Beyond Ain’s imaginative site planning, these truly “flexible houses” employ sliding partition walls—such that this unit with open living, dining and kitchen area, can be configured as a one, two, or three bedroom residence with 1 bath & private garden. In recent years, the Avenel homes have undergone sympathetic restoration efforts. In many cases, the original landscape plan by Garrett Eckbo has been restored. This corner unit provides privacy and dramatic views of the Rowena reservoir and Griffith Observatory.

Located at 2849 Avenel Street, final pricing will be released shortly. For more information, please contact Barry Gray at: 310.275.1000
