    Property Details

    1919 Craftsman retreat on a private corner lot at the base of the Hollywood Hills. Surrounded by mature trees and lush gardens visible from every room, this emotional property has been lovingly maintained with architectural integrity, and upgraded with tasteful renovations and modernized systems. Once inside the hedged & private courtyard you will enjoy the welcoming front porch. French doors and windows bring beautiful natural sunlight into every room. Front office (or 5th bedroom) looks through a set of French doors to a blossoming lemon tree. Warm and spacious living room with wood paneling, wood-burning fireplace and adjoining dining area with outdoor Saltillo-tiled patio for al fresco dining. Two spacious bedrooms on one side of the house share a full bath with separate shower + period tile.On the opposite side of the house is a bedroom suite (added in 2010 w/permits) and beautiful bathroom with travertine shower + skylight. The charming kitchen with marble and butcher-block counters and a 6-burner gas range creates an inviting atmosphere for cooking and gathering. A farm sink beneath a wide bank of windows looks out into the back gardens, accessed through a Dutch door that leads onto a spacious dining and entertainment deck. At the back of the property (through a private entrance) is a split-level stand-alone 352 sq ft guest house or office with kitchenette, living space and loft on the upper level and 1 bedroom and bath on the lower level. Outdoor areas include multiple options for lounging, entertaining or strolling through the gardens. A trellis-covered back terrace, ipe wood deck and trickling fountains create a magical ambience. A mature oak tree anchors the garden and citrus trees abound (Eureka lemon, Mexican lime, Cara Cara and Valencia orange). If you have a green thumb you'll enjoy the gardening bench with built-in sink. Drought-tolerant landscaping is on an irrigation system, the perimeter of the property is entirely fenced and hedged, and a concrete parking pad with remote-controlled access provides 2-car parking. Bring your vision for the enormous attic space that runs the length of the house with plenty of standing room. Upgrades include Central HVAC, bolted foundation, copper plumbing, upgraded electrical, security system, and replaced chimney liner and sewer line. Stroll to nearby markets, restaurants and hiking trails, or hideout in your private garden oasis with multiple areas to lounge, relax, and rejuvenate. Hollywood Grove HPOZ.
