We at the Maltman Bungalows hope you find this “frequently asked questions” helpful. Please contact Steve Clark at Sotheby’s International Realty at (323) 665-7355 with any questions you may have about the Bungalows. Thank you for your interest!


What are the Maltman Bungalows and why are they special?

The Maltman Bungalows are one of the finest examples of detached bungalow courts remaining in Los Angeles. The 1926-vintage units hearken back to the heyday of the early Los Feliz and Silver Lake film studios, when classic details like hardwood floors, mahogany built-ins and brass window hardware were simply the way homes were built.

Now, after meticulous restoration, the Bungalows exude early 20th century charm. Coved ceilings, period tile and other authentic finishes give each one its unique character. And many offer lovely views of the Hollywood Sign, Griffith Park, Los Feliz, Downtown or Koreatown.


How have you updated the Bungalows?

We have completely restored the original luster of the kitchens and bathrooms with custom 1920s-style cabinetry, polished nickel fixtures and period tile. We have also provided the latest in high-end Bosch and GE appliances, central heat and air conditioning, all-new electrical and plumbing systems, energy-efficient on-demand water heaters, technology-ready wiring and all-new wood-frame windows and doors custom-made to match the originals.

We have also upgraded the site utilities to provide new water, power and gas service to each unit.


Are these condominiums?

Not at all. A new City of Los Angeles ordinance has allowed us to offer the Bungalows for sale as true single-family homes, each on its own separate, individual plot of land owned in fee simple.

There are no common walls or traditional homeowners’ association. There is simply a low-fee maintenance association to make caring for the landscape, driveway and utilities more convenient for the owners.


Where are they located?

On Maltman Avenue in the heart of Silver Lake within walking distance of the shops and restaurants on Sunset Boulevard.


Is there parking?

Yes. Every Bungalow has its own attached garage together with an additional uncovered parking space in front.


Who is behind this project?

Civic Enterprise Development, a local, independent company that builds community-oriented projects in and around Los Angeles and works with neighborhood organizations to preserve and enliven communities. Mott Smith and Brian Albert are its principals.


Who are the architects?

Drisko Studio, led by Kaitlin Drisko and Bob Knight, provided architectural oversight throughout the renovation process. Both Kaitlin and Bob are historic specialists and have worked on numerous significant local projects including the Griffith Park Observatory, the Hollyhock House, L.A. City Hall and the Bradbury Building.  TGP Landscape Architecture designed the green space.
