You need to be old enough (or young enough) to climb a ladder. Kids and adventurous adults love this room. It has a great view of the grounds. There are 4 twin size beds in the secret room and room enough for a queen size air bed. Please note, if renting the secret room, tenants will need to climb a ladder to access the space. Tenant is aware that this is not recommended for very young children or elderly adults. The Secret Room is ideal for children but may not be comfortable for tall adults with the low ceiling. Owner will not be responsible for any unforeseen accidents resulting from the use of the ladder.

The outside fireplace is on a private patio off the breakfast room. It's like having anther living room outside With plush out door couches and coffee table. This area also has a BBQ. There is another BBQ on the 3rd level of the deck next to the fire pit. Sitting around the fire pit at night with the kids roasting marsh mellows is a wonderful family experience.

Close to Universal Studio's (2 miles away) Beverly Hills-8 minutes away.
101 and 405 freeways are minutes away. Very centrally located to all major LA attractions and Movie Studios.
Year Purchased: 1983
About: Hi!! My name is Georgia Durante. I am a Stunt Driver and the author of 'The Company She Keeps' (my autobiography) which has recently been optioned for a movie. I purchased my property in 1983 and it has been an ongoing labor of love every since. Over the years I have put in over a million dollars, creating a magical paradise. The original size of the home was 2800 sq.ft. It is now 5000 sq. ft. I am 62 years old and I have adopted a baby girl in 2006. I have elected to stay at home and be a mom. Renting my property is a way of making an income which allows me to be at home rather than on location. I have built a play house and tree house on the property (inspired by my daughter) which is a real plus for renter's with young children. The play house is a mini version of the main house with a river rock exterior, bay windows, skylights, custom made child size leather couch, bunk beds, cable TV, phone line, fireplace and camera system to monitor the children from inside the house. It has it's own patio with a child size umbrella table. It truly is a child's wonderland. People come here as strangers and leave as friends. I live on the property, but your privacy is respected. I am available 24hours a day to help to make your stay an enjoyable adventure.
Why Studio City:
This property is centrally located to many attractions in the Los Angeles area. Just blocks from the 101 and 405 freeways. I love the quiet of the cul de sac street and the LA River behind the property is a great buffer for any street noise. It's in the middle of all that LA has to offer, yet you feel like your on your own private Island. People come just to relax around the pool and jacuzzi with 3 waterfalls, or have business meetings around the fire pit or gazebo bar. It's a serene tropical atmosphere. It's romantic for couples and a disneyland for kids. It has it all!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
In this cozy magical creation, I enjoy having friends over to cook out and sit around the fire pit with a glass of wine when I don't have guest. The jacuzzi usually gets utilized before the night is over. The entire back yard is lit with lights in all the trees and the pool lights change colors every few minutes. It's eye candy for all my guest. It feels like a fairyland. I am a writer. I can not ask for a better environment to write. It's so peaceful here. No need to ever go out. It's all right here. You'll find it difficult to leave the property to go sightseeing. If you book a week or longer, I give you an autographed book and a few other goodie when you leave.
