Name: 2310 Brier Ave by Better Shelter
Location: Silver Lake, CA
Size: 2 bed, 2 bath, just under 1,000 sq. ft.

As many Silver Lake residents often do, we walk/run around the Reservoir in the morn and evening, both for exercise and for the opportunity to oggle and dream about owning one of the many desirable homes that surround the body of water. Most of my friends are renters, so we're all acquainted with the "let's pick our lottery dream house while we run" game. We just found one we might want to swing by to check out if our numbers come up anytime soon...

Right off our running route is this charming 100 year old cottage that was recently renovated and decorated by Better Shelter, the Newport Beach residential design firm that specializes in modest and design-centric projects. The house was just listed with some great interior shots for us to admire before we have an opportunity saunter over for an open house visit.

They've done an admirable job keeping the spirit of the modest size home and we're loving their choice in decor to compliment the architectural elements. And how about the excellent choice with the attractive xeriscaped yard? We're ready to move in ourselves (we wish)...
