It’s no secret that finding a new home can be difficult, especially when considering elements like location, amenities and design. As your wish list grows, the available options can start to dwindle, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Trumark Homes offers a variety of housing options to help you find the perfect home for you and your family.
Case in point: Jonathan and Calvin, recent new homeowners at our SL70 neighborhood in Los Angeles’ Silver Lake community.
The happy couple lived in Beverly Hills for five years because of its proximity to their jobs in West Hollywood and Century City, but when the idea of moving struck, they found it wasn’t as easy as they thought.
“For at least 18 months, we would spend evenings and weekends looking for somewhere new to live, but were regularly deflated by the lack of available inventory, the age of the inventory available, and the outrageous prices for what was offered,” Jonathan explains, “We didn’t expect to find something turnkey—we didn’t mind having to do some cosmetic changes—but we also didn’t want to live in a place that didn’t reflect our style or personality.”
Enter Trumark Homes’ SL70, a neighborhood right in the middle of Los Angeles’ hippest community, Silver Lake. Built with modern spaces, rooftop decks and convenience in mind, SL70 looks to echo homeowner’s individuality and match their passions.
While looking for a three-bedroom, two-bathroom contemporary home with laundry and a two-car garage, Jonathan’s partner Calvin stumbled upon SL70 online. He then suggested the couple visit the neighborhood in-person.
“On the day he suggested we see the development in-person, he wouldn’t tell me where the development was located,” Jonathan says, “We got in the car and just kept heading east. Regrettably, neither of us had spent much time east of Robertson Boulevard, so the idea of living ‘on the east side’ was just foreign.”
Ultimately, that didn’t deter Jonathan too much. As soon as they arrived at SL70, the couple immediately took a liking to the development’s contemporary architecture, structural independence, open floor plans and brand new, customizable upgrades.
But it was the home’s rooftop deck that excited them most and eventually led them to buy.
“Yes we loved everything else, but to be in Southern California without outdoor living space and so close to downtown, it would have been a shame to not have a home where we could spend a good amount of time outside and the sky deck felt urban and unique; plus, we have unobstructed views,” Jonathan states.
All of this, plus a great location are what attracted Jonathan and Calvin to SL70, and the same sentiment is shared by other homeowners as well. Located close to up-and-coming Downtown Los Angeles and right in the middle of all the vibrancy that is Silver Lake, the couple knew there would never be a boring moment.
“Silver Lake has a lot of energy, the neighborhood is constantly changing both in real estate and in diversity, in a good way, and we can walk our dogs around Silver Lake reservoir and to the shops and cafes on Silver Lake Boulevard,” Jonathan explains.
It makes it no surprise that Jonathan also describes Silver Lake as energetic, trendy and diverse.
“We are 2.5 miles from Downtown LA. We enjoy the activity and energy that comes from living in a big city,” he says.
Since moving in, Jonathan and Calvin have loved every aspect of SL70 and the Silver Lake community, but the thing they love the most is the idea that this is their first home together as a couple; something that simply can’t be beat.
