Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, plus bonus bed in walk in closet

Beautifully restored 1925 Mediterranean home in the hills above Hollywood. Grand two story entry hall with curved staircase and gallery. Two level living room with, a fireplace, arched ceiling, picture window to the front courtyard and French doors to a terrace at the rear. The dining room has a huge silver leafed cornice molding and a table that expands to seat 12.

The large kitchen has a subzero refrigerator, classic six burner O' Keefe and Merritt stove and wine cooler and separate lounge area with hanging flat screen TV. Three bedrooms upstairs each with king size bed, en suite bathroom and flat screen TV.

Glamorous Hollywood Vacation Home : Secluded on a quiet street, walking distance to the Hollywood Bowl and twenty minutes to everywhere else, this jewel of a home will take you back to the time when movies where still made without sound. While providing plenty of recent technology, this glamorous Mediterranean style residence with touches of Art Deco boasts over 3200 sq ft (300 sq meters) of lovingly restored, beautifully appointed interiors.

Entering the two story entry hall reveals a sweeping grand staircase, a magnificent period Art Deco chandelier and the library gallery above. One can easily imagine Norma Desmond descending-- ready for her close up. The drama continues as one steps down from the spacious entry into an inviting living room with a 12 foot arched ceiling, fireplace and huge arched window offering views of the intimate entry court. At the far end of this room, there are two steps up to a cozy seating area and bar which was originally designed for the grand piano that entertained guests before elegant dinners.

The dining room (embellished with bold silver leafed crown moldings and a magnificent Deco -inspired chandelier) easily accommodates 12 guests at the empire-style dining table. Beyond the dining room is the heart of the house, an updated kitchen that amazingly still fits the early 1920’s but quietly features a sub zero refrigerator, wine cooler, center island, two sinks, dishwasher, microwave and fully restored antique six burner duel oven O’keefe and Merrit range. Also included here is a sitting area with sofa, side chair, a flat screen television and bar stools. On the second floor are three bedrooms, two with king size beds and the third that can be either two extra long twins or converted to a single king. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and flat screen televisions. The master bedroom closet has a double bed as well for additional guests or as an escape for a restless sleeper. It is the size of a small bedroom and has a skylight and french door that leads to a small terrace.

Besides the nod to history, dual zone heating and air conditioning, cable TV on five screens and a very fast WiFi connection makes this amazing vacation residence a must for your next Los Angeles visit. The only thing missing is you!

Amazing Home with a Great Owner!

Just felt like home the minute we met Doug and walked inside! Couldn't have been better for us! Great Location. Doug was an amazing help with rock solid food suggestions, grocery stores etc. Would we go back? Absolutely!

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Doug was a gracious host, very helpful, went above and beyond the call of duty. Would highly recommend his house to anyone who goes to LA area. Very clean and tidy, had a few extra perks in all bathrooms. Rooms were large and comfortable. A lot of space even for 7 people. We would stay here again.

Great character and location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property in a very convenient location. The home and its decor are top notch. You can feel the 1925 character with modern updates. The kitchen and all beds and baths were excellent, clean and well stocked. The reservation, check in, and check out could not have gone any more smoothly. Thank you, Douglas.

Spring Break Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful experience staying here. We loved the location, close to highways, Universal City, Burbank, Pasadena, Hollywood, Studio City. Parking was always available on the street right in front of the house. Spacious rooms, each bedroom has it's own bathroom. Doug was there to welcome us when we arrived. He was always available if we needed anything. Felt at home, very comfortable. Would highly recommend to friends.

Perfect in every way: search ends here!

  • 5 of 5

Doug, the host, greeted us upon arrival and offered a personalized check in experience. He remained available for any questions or needs throughout our stay and always replied right away. He even saw us off at 6am on departure!

Thoughtful amenity baskets were placed in each bathroom upon arrival and exceeded five star hotel standards. Accommodations, in general, exceeded expectations with modern appointments and featured the latest technologies, such as truly high speed internet and Roku tv! Beds and linens were also very plush.

The abundant natural light, high ceilings, outdoor spaces, and ambient lighting immediately created a sense of home away from home and we will check availability here first whenever returning to Los Angeles in the future.

Be sure to check out the 3.3 mi Hollywood Reservoir loop when you go.... only 1 mile from the house, above the neighborhood, with extraordinary views of LA and the Hollywood sign!
