A Silver Lake bunny hutch with a library?
Despite a red-hot seller’s market in real estate, Lady Bun Bun Flufferstein and her son, Marshmallow, managed to find a brightly colored three-story Contemporary, with a foyer, a study room, a fireplace room, a garden balcony, and a cafe balcony. Plus a garden right outside the front fence.
