The Silver Lake 1960s home designed for trumpeter Herb Alpert now belongs to Megan Stalter for under $2 million

Megan Stalter acquires Ray Otero's architectural masterpiece in Silver Lake, originally designed for trumpeter Herb Alpert in the 1960s.

In the charming neighborhood of Silver Lake, California, actress and comedienne Megan Stalter recently acquired a historic residence. This significant purchase follows on the heels of her role in the HBO series ‘Hacks,’ marking a new chapter in her life.

The home, with its rich history, was initially designed in the 1960s by the esteemed architect Ray Otero. Interestingly, it was initially intended for the iconic trumpeter Herb Alpert of the Tijuana Brass band. Built on a quarter-acre lot, the house spans 1,400 square feet, stretching across two stories. It boasts three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a welcoming foyer, a spacious living room, a dining area, and a kitchen. Additional features include a laundry room and several other amenities that make it a complete package.

Reports from real estate insiders suggest that Stalter shelled out just shy of $2 million for this architectural gem. Rumor has it she even paid slightly more than the asking price, indicating the home’s desirability. The previous owner, who had held the property since 2001, acquired it for a mere $515,000. Over the years, the residence has seen multiple renovations, ensuring it remains contemporary and pristine.

Inside, the house is a blend of original and modern features. The central air conditioning, high ceilings, and authentic wood paneling stand testament to its heritage. The expansive glass walls and a wood-burning fireplace add a touch of modern elegance. The galley-style kitchen is a marvel with quartz countertops, a light gray tile backsplash, and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances.


To complete the allure, the property offers an intimate patio, perfect for quality time with loved ones outdoors.

With this acquisition, Megan Stalter firmly roots herself in Los Angeles, ensuring she remains close to the pulse of the entertainment industry. This house, with its blend of history and modern design, seems to be an apt reflection of her own journey in the world of comedy and acting.
