Car: Not Necessary

South Sherman Oaks provides a picket-fence oasis tucked in the foothills, loaded with world-class eateries within a five minutes walk and television studios within a ten minute drive.

You don't need a car, but most prefer it in L.A.. We provide a temporary permit for guests so you can always park right in front of the house in case you're driving. I'm third-generation Los Angelina. I've lived all over the city before settling down here in my favorite L.A. neighborhood.

Enjoy hiking and biking in our Hollywood Hills nature conservancy trails or brave Beverly Hills down on the other side of Mullholland Drive. We prefer to stay here in the valley where the parking is usually easy and plentiful and the shopping offers plenty of options. Fashion Square shopping center with Bloomingdales is about a mile away. The famous Sherman Oaks Galleria was completely redone a few years ago and now provides a home to our favorite movie theater, the ArcLight Cinema, where you reserve your own spacious seat and enjoy a 'professional' atmosphere sans chatter.

Roughly half of our guests come to work in the entertainment industry due to our close proximity to film and television studios, and many of the rest come to visit family nearby. For the rest who come to relax and vacation, the Getty Museum is always a wonderful way to spend the day, and you can take the scenic route out Mullholland to get there.

If you're looking to walk down the street for some fine dining, Il Tiramisu is always my first choice, and not just because it's 45 seconds away. Northern Italian cuisine, wonderful service. Say hello to Ivo and Peter for me!

Sweetharts is hard to pass up on the walk back. Yummy gelatos and ice creams. Actress Melissa Joan Hart started it up a few years ago as a labor of love, and we're so happy to have this addition to the neighborhood.

Sweetbutter, about a 90-second walk is rustic marketplace with a delectable array of housemade muffins, scones, cookies and layer cakes. It's always packed, but it's well worth it.

Isakaya M Sushi, just as close, is a fun sushi bar that's open all afternoon through 'til 12 or 1 a.m. most nights.

I could go on and on about the restaurants. Just conduct a search for 'restaurants near Woodman Ave and Ventura Blvd' and you'll see what I mean.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I purchased this property from my mother 17 years ago, and she had previously inherited it from her mother before her. My Great Uncle Jack planted the huge maple tree in the front garden nearly 50 years ago, and I intend to stay here for the rest of my years. I've been teaching classical voice and music privately for over 25 years, and I began to host guests when students would come to study from abroad and discovered the challenge of finding a comfortable, affordable place to stay in this area. We're very proud of what we're able to offer here and enjoy having guests return again and again.

Why the Owner Chose Sherman Oaks:
This is a great location for professionals in the entertainment industry... very convenient to studios, a very easy place to live. South of Ventura Blvd. makes all the difference as it's all single family residential and used to be known as Bel Air Estates, yet it's a quick walk down to all kinds of restaurants and shopping.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Privacy, quiet, comfort and convenience, and of course, the fountain. The real clincher is to be SO close to the Woodman and Ventura attractions (i.e. Vespa, Massage Place, numerous recording studios and restaurants) and yet to feel so tucked back into a quiet residential location where you don't have to fight for parking (thanks to the parking pass). Picket fences abound!
