Villa Knoll is a stunning example of mediterranean architecture designed by noted architect Franz Herding in 1925. This 3500 square foot magnificent mini-estate has been lovingly restored and seamlessly updated by RP Designs offering state of the art amenities while maintaining classic architectural integrity and character of this Golden Era home. The professionally landscaped specimen gardens with new pool and spa have been painstakingly designed by Sirak Landscapes. Featuring stunning views from virtually every room, this 3 story showplace sits on a knoll above Hollywood. The elegant 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath floor plan offers comfortable proportions impeccably executed with glamor and charm. No system or finish has been overlooked. Extensive features include a new master suite with stunning indoor/outdoor bath, an exquisite new kitchen with Ceaserstone marble counters and top-of-the-line appliances, open plan dining and living spaces, espresso oak floors, a 16 foot arched ceilinged living room with massive picture window to the view, roof terrace with 360 degree views and a charming guest casita with separate entrance. There are terraces, balconies and outdoor living spaces everywhere you look. The setting is tranquil yet you are literally minutes to Universal, Warner Brothers and Disney Studios, downtown LA and Hollywood and all that Los Angeles has to offer. Perfect for movie and business execs or families wanting luxury accommodations while vacationing. NO PARTIES STRICTLY ENFORCED.
I am an LA based builder/designer in the business of developing luxury character homes.
Rudolfo Polak purchased this villa in 2013
This property is a complete treasure. It is difficult to find great architecture, a stunning setting with glorious views and an incredible location minutes from everything in one property. I am in love.

This home and location were perfect for our adult family; the Spanish style home perched in Hollywood Hills gave us a great sense of fully being in LA. The pictures and description were totally accurate. Gorgeous landscaping with many outdoor nooks to enjoy day and night. The interior was well decorated and stocked with everything you would need. We hiked from the home to the Hollywood Hills sign -- you can take a rocky steep path up, take in views from a nearby ridge, and return via less challenging paths and roads. We of course took day trips to all sorts of other activities. Loved every minute.
Thank you, Rudi!
The guest house was a wonderful addition for someone who likes their own space. We loved all of the terraces, balconies and patio spaces - plenty of space for everyone. The lighting and house music made the night time feel enchanting. The pool and hot tub were wonderful. And the outdoor pet birds added a lovely feature. Beautiful succulents are everywhere.
A hike to the Wisdom Tree is easy access from the house. And Universal Studios was only 3 min away! Because it's so close, I would recommend getting a two day pass (not much more expensive) and going back on the second day for some extra evening fun when the park gets less busy. But just hanging out at the house is great too! We would rent again. :)
This house is the most incredible property that I have ever stayed at, and completely made the weekend for my friends and I. Rudi is so accommodating and was delightful to work with through the process, and we could not have asked for a more perfect place (and location) for a girls getaway. The fully stocked kitchen and all the amenities ensured that we could make the most of of our time together and enjoying this amazing house! It is also ideally located out of the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, but only a few minutes away from a lot of amazing destinations, which made it incredibly convenient for our outings. Despite living in Los Angeles, I am already looking for another excuse to get a weekend getaway together and stay here again!
I stayed here with friends for my bachelorette party and had a wonderful time. The house is immaculate and even has a little guest house off the pool area. Rudi was really flexible about the check-in/out times, which made the stay even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this property to families and friends wanting to stay in a luxurious home with a pool and hot tub. It was perfect!
Thank you to Rudi and Mark! We had a wonderful girls getaway at this beautiful home. The house looks like it was furnished by a master interior decorator. Everyone reported that the beds were the most comfortable that they have ever slept on. The water heater was off the first day, which meant we could not enjoy the incredible pool and hot tub. However, we let Rudi know the next morning and he fixed the problem right away. We would all love to go back!
We flew down from San Francisco to celebrate my son's graduation and had a total of 8 people staying at the house and additional guests for lunch and dinner. Rudi was nice enough to meet our caterer a few days before the graduation party so that she could take a look at the layout. The house is utterly charming. It is totally stocked with absolutely everything you could possibly need. All of our guests that attended our party fell in love with the house. There is a tremendous attention to detail and you really get the feeling that you are staying somewhere special and unique. Highly recommend!
