California Cool: modern, open-plan house with sparkling pool

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,510 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 31 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

An exceptionally elegant, modern, designer's home in a tranquil & leafy residential pocket of Beverly Hills/West Hollywood, which has been published in Sunset Magazine. Gallery white walls, tasteful contemporary furniture (think B&B Italia white sofas and Starck chairs) mixed with one-off, vintage 50/60'S pieces from Marco Zanuso to Florence Knoll, are punctuated with splashes of whimsical color (artwork to cushions) giving a sense of peace and verve as soon as you enter across the Droog 'Hare' door mat.

You will be stunned by the amount of natural light that enters across the easy-flowing floor plan through skylights and floor to ceilings windows. This is what Southern California is all about. Bamboo floors run throughout the interiors (which we like to keep as a shoe-free zone) while tropical plantings accent the very private back yard and the azure solar-heated swimming pool.

This house is a HOME rather than a rental and as perfect as a deluxe hideout for honeymooners or a writer on deadline as an urban gadabout family wanting to explore all the city has to offer. We are literally a pillow throw from Rodeo Drive, The Beverly Center, Fashionable Robertson Blvd Boutiques, Furniture Showrooms, Art Galleries in the design district of West Hollywood West with myriad sidewalk cafes (Urth, Pain Quotidien) to fabulous restaurants (Lucques, Cecconi's) within walking distance. Come and enjoy..... Please email me rather than call my cell phone as I am often traveling out of town or out of the country. Thank you. I will reply promptly.

Why the Owner Chose the location: If there is a center to Los Angeles, West Hollywood is it. Our home is within a pillow throw of beautiful shops, excellent restaurants, cool bars, art galleries, Beverly Hills. We love it.

The Unique Benefits at this House: The house is chic, tastefully furnished with modern and vintage 20th century pieces. It is in an excellent location, within walking distance of Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, The Beverly Center, Movie theaters, good restaurants, cafes and hip boutiques and design shops. The house is filled with light throughout the day. It has a modern design with an excellent open plan flow between one room and the next. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could wish for. The pool is solar heated which means it costs little to heat during the summer months but is too cold to use during the winter. It is extremely private. It's a perfect tranquil retreat and also a perfect place to entertain friends and clients. We can provide maid service and catering and concierge services.

Wonderful house in the best area!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house; centrally located on a quiet street with coffee shops, restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. The house itself is bright, clean, and charming with a wonderful backyard and a pool. Parking space in the driveway was great but also plenty of parking on the street. We will definitely use this property again!

Great location, great house, great service!

  • 4 of 5

This house is in a fantastic area of Los Angeles, close to great shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Everything is very clean and well maintained, and everything you need is there. Great communication with the owner as well as the housekeeper. The pool is solar heated so it was a bit too early in the year to be able to use it. The glass windows are louvered so we really heard the birdsong in the early hours but we got used to it after a couple of nights. Overall a lovely place to stay!

Beautiful House - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very lucky to come across this little gem! Everything is modern, clean, and absolutely perfect! I really loved the tasteful furniture, art, and décor. Location was super convenient and close to everything. This house is really private and quiet. I must say it was really nice after getting off a 11 hour long flight and move into a place that feels like home away from home! The pool and outside are have just been pimped. Simply perfect. We will defiantly stay here again.

So Chic & Comfortable, Private, Best Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our month-long stay at this home. It’s the epitome of Southern California-style living – beautiful room flow, lots of natural light, lush and stylish landscaping, and a gorgeous warm pool. The décor is chic, clean and modern, yet comfortable. Everything (from the sofa to the linens to the barware) is tasteful and well-edited. The home provides privacy, is very secure and the neighborhood is quiet and residential. The location was perfect for us to access all the best of Los Angeles (Beverly Hills/Westwood/Santa Monica/Downtown/Silver Lake/Los Feliz.) It's the perfect rental in so many ways, and we look forward to returning soon! Thank you to Kathryn for offering such a beautiful home!

About Owner

I am a design writer, designer and yoga teacher.

Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why Owner chose West Hollywood West

This is a uniquely bright, open plan home where it is impossible to feel anything but happy. The quiet residential neighborhood is a pleasure but it's also steps from so many fun rests and cafes and cool shopping.

What makes this house unique

The house is so luminous that when the sun shines which as it's SCal, is most days, everything inside (including guests) sparkle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything is great. The house is beautiful. Thanks.

Car: not necessary

West Hollywood is a vibrant part of L.A. not only is it negotiable very easily by foot, it offers nightlife on sunset blvd, shopping on Robertson blvd, design stores and art galleries around Melrose and Robertson and is a pillow throw from Beverly Hills. There are many good restaurants and fabulous cafes in the area also. if there is a center to L.A. which is an arguable point, this is it!

Other Activities: Shopping, Health/Beauty Spa
