Photos: Mayor Garcetti's Sweet Silver Lake Pad Up For Lease For $8,500 A Month

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

If you've ever wanted to live in the same house Mayor Eric Garcetti once slept in, now here's your chance. Folks can now rent out his fancy Silver Lake digs on a one-year-lease—for $8,500 a month.

It's a pretty hefty price tag for renting a joint in L.A. However, it's a huge place: a 4,000-square-foot residence built in 2010 with six bedrooms and five bathrooms, according to's even a grassy area on the upstairs patio that overlooks the city and Silver Lake Reservoir.

And we have to admit that Garcetti sure has style. After all, his Echo Park home was featured in Dwell back in 2008. The Silver Lake spot has a sleek design, huge bath tub and a classy walk-in closet.

Garcetti and his wife Amy Wakeland moved out of their Silver Lake home into their even sweeter official mayoral house (one that former mayors Tom Bradley and Antonio Villaraigosa also once dwelled in) at the Getty House in Windsor Square last November. That Tudor-style home is 8,076 square feet, according to the L.A. Times, so we can't blame Garcetti for wanting to upgrade.
