Born and raised in South Africa, film and television Actress Jodi Balfour @jodiannebalfour moved to Los Angeles five years ago and now resides in a 1920’s cottage nestled in the Silver Lake hills, with her boyfriend Alex and pup, Isla.

At just over 500 square feet, the cottage was designed as a circle, so one room flows freely into another. “The house was built in the 20’s and is nestled up an historic stair street in the hills of Silverlake. We have a luxurious amount of outdoor space which helps make the home feel larger than it is and allows us an indoor-outdoor lifestyle we love.”

“At the risk of sounding deeply unoriginal, I love the way the sun sets in the neighbourhood here, bathing the hills and the San Gabriel mountains in golden-peach light, cutting through a little gap in the geography to get right in your eye while driving… it makes me feel so stupidly happy.”
