General Description
"The Childs Heights Residential Historic District is located within the southwestern portion of the Silver Lake neighborhood, directly south of Sunset Boulevard. It is generally bounded by Sunset Boulevard on the north, Marcia Drive on the south, Hyperion Avenue on the west, and Maltman Avenue on the east. The district consists of 151 properties on modest, regularly sized rectangular parcels. Of the 151, 91 are contributors and 57 are non-contributors. The remaining properties could not be evaluated for lack of visibility. The topography of the district has a gentle, undulating grade. The streets are generally gridded, running northeast-southwest.The district primarily contains single-family residences and a small number of multi-family properties such as duplexes and apartment houses, which are scattered throughout. The oldest residences date from the 1910s and are mostly Craftsman in style. The majority of the residences from the 1920s are designed in the Mediterranean or Spanish Colonial Revival styles. The buildings have a uniform setback from the street, leaving room for small front lawns. Many properties do not have accommodations for automobiles, those that do frequently have detached garages. Most of the buildings are elevated from the sidewalk level and are accessed by a set of concrete steps leading to walkways. The district is further characterized by its wide streets - much wider than many of the surrounding streets - sidewalks and curbs. There does not appear to be a uniform street tree pattern, but there is an abundance of various mature trees and vegetation lining the streets on individual parcels."

    Significance Statement
    "Excellent example of an early 20th century tract subdivided specifically due to its adjacency to the streetcar. Due to the relatively low percentage of district contributors, may not retain sufficient integrity for the National Register."
