Hollywood house description

Chapter and verse

It’s been said LA is a city where ’nobody reads‘, but one visit to this literary haven and you’ll find yourself telling rather a different story. Each new room in the home is like the next engaging chapter of a vibrant text: entertaining, engrossing, and enlivening the senses as it brings the author’s world right to your fingertips in all its color and variety. Whether you’re a casual browser or the choosiest bookworm, you’ll feel enriched by the impressive collection of artifacts and innumerable tomes on display. And the story continues on foot outside your front door, throughout the historic neighbourhood of Larchmont Village.

A note about the author

Your host is a writer, poet, translator and artist whose work has taken her to a great many cities and foreign lands. Her thirst for knowledge is often slaked by her continued accumulation of printed work, but her deliciously strong homemade coffee will occasionally also do the trick.

Palimpsest

The varied chambers of this eclectic home are coated with artwork, designs, and books – ordered upon beautifully ornate furniture surfaces and shelves – that speak of multiple cultures, in multiple languages and accents. The colourful kitchen feels appropriate for any world cuisine you can muster, and the plush living room doubles as a gallery of bibliographic and anthropological prize catches: exotic masks, an oriental mural, African sculptures and a Weber standing piano. The bedrooms are bright with intercontinentally-influenced comfort, while the backyard’s grill-ready dry flagstone patio and delicately carved canopy seating make for a book club meeting that’ll be the envy of readers everywhere.

                                      A land of celluloid dreams, where many flock from near and far to script the unfinished endings to fables of their own cinema success… welcome to Hollywood Boulevard.

                                      The name itself calls many things to mind – predominantly, the powerhouse entertainment industry and the bevy of silver-screen stars. Part of you feels as though you have been here before. And you have, whether enchanted in the theatre or nestled snugly at home.

                                      Film buffs delight in the greasy spoon options at Mel’s Drive-In, a Sunset Boulevard staple serving up fresh milkshakes beneath a young George Lucas on the set of ‘American Graffiti’. At Osteria Mozza, Mario Batali et al boast Italian cuisine that gives its New York counterparts stiff box office competition.

                                      Watching from above are the Hollywood Hills - a once pastoral setting that gave way to showy real estate in the 1920s but still retains much of its historic charm. There’s something magical about the way the city sparkles over Mulholland Drive after sunset, and the deeper you venture into the labyrinthine network of narrow mountain roads, the more glamour and intrigue you’ll discover, from bougainvillea-laden balconies to intimate cafes and country stores.

                                      As the scene is set, the lights spark to life and the camera rolls, Hollywood will forever offer an auteur assortment of answers to the question, ‘What’s your dream?’

                                      Why Hollywood:

Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries.

If it’s something we can’t solve over the phone, we’ll pop over to lend a hand. And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them – places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
