2316 Silver Ridge Ave: Stalled Development Update, 6 Years Later

Photo: Diane Edwardson, October 8, 2011.  Neighbors on Lake View Ave are calling the single family home, "The Hotel."  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

More than 6 years in stop & start construction, a check of the Building & Safety website indicates this Spanish Revival Persian Palace meets Medieval Hollywood is still not complete. Although, it gets more amusing every day: gun turrets, mace, more wrought iron than any one has used since the Middle Ages, stained glass, anti-invasion spikes, guard zebra and a wrought iron dog run suspended off the side of the building made for chihuahua-sized dogs.  It even has nicely concealed trashcans - an added bonus.

The house may raise eyebrows, but at least it's not a big stucco box with an ugly rooftop.
