About the property

Located in an excellent part of Silver Lake in a quiet residential neighborhood above Sunset Blvd. Situated between Downtown LA and Hollywood.

There is a beautiful walking path surrounding the lake for strolls.

This 1920's Era Chateau, is a two story, one bedroom home. Character abounds with a gated & hedged entry leading you into an arched doorway. There are hardwood floors, original wood windows, lovely light fixtures, and remodeled kitchen. Inside of the home is beautiful craftsman wood staircase. The kitchen has wood butcher block counters, farmhouse sink, and stainless steel stove/micro. There is a new LG washer/dryer, all in one machine, in the kitchen. The large bedroom has a new organic bamboo queen size bed. There is a private courtyard with alfresco dining for 4 on the vintage french cafe set.

About Gisele Plouffe

Gisele and Guy are the owners of this property and bought it as a fixer. After restoring the interiors, they were ready for occupancy. We have lived in the Silver Lake area for over 15 years now and really enjoy it here. Gisele is a Los Angeles native and a local real estate agent, and Guy has been here over 25 years from Illinois, so that makes him a native as well. :)

Gisele Plouffe purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Gisele Plouffe chose Los Angeles area

This is our second VRBO rental and have had glowing reviews from our guests so far. We really enjoy it and always make sure the home is ready for our guests. Silver Lake is a very special place for us as well as Los Angeles in general. It is a wonderful place to live, and growing up here cannot imagine living anywhere else.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We love to own a piece of Los Angeles history. Built in 1920, we are sure if these walls could talk, we would have some very interesting story's of old Hollywood. As soon as we walked into this home, we knew it was the place for us. You will see while staying with us, just how special the setting and character are. From listening to the birds in the morning to the cathedral bells in the distance, it is a quiet hideaway in LA.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here before and we will again. The apartment is charming, clean, and well maintained, and the location is hard to beat: high up on a quaint Silver Lake street, serenely quiet yet only a few blocks from Sunset Boulevard. Parking is abundant. We had a last-minute snag in our travel plans, and Gisele was gracious and accommodating, for which we are very grateful.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

As always, the Chateau was spotless, thoughtfully outfitted, and completely charming in a serene (in Silverlake!) and quiet neighborhood just up the hill from Sunset. Parking is easy too: just an all around terrific weekend.

Great place in silver lake

  • 4 of 5

The place is great and very conveniently situated in LA. There are some great restaurants and bars close by. The layout is perfect and outdoor patio is very nice. The bed wasn't the most comfortable in the world, but it wasn't terrible. Overall a great place to stay in the LA area.

Highly recommended!

Beautiful neighborhood and perfect location. On the plus side: gracious host, excellent value, peaceful, and comfortable. Only advice: the kitchen could be modernized with better pans and utensils.

Great! relaxed, quiet, private, safe neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We were in-town for a wedding and stayed 4 nights, if you've been to this side of LA before you know how expensive and chancy it can be to book lodging. This place located in a very safe neighborhood couldn't have turned out better for us, street parking directly in front of the private vine covered gate entrance, then 15 steps to your private front door. Interior was super cool, upstairs very comfy, the lower level kitchen/dining area with secluded outside patio couldn't have worked out better for us, this will be my first choice to book when I return again in the future.
