Hollywood Hills house description

Jetliner views of the city and Hollywood sign make for a magical romantic getaway in this historic Spanish villa once owned by actor Eddie Albert. Minutes away from the action in Hollywood yet completely secluded in this private setting that boasts over 29,000 square feet of wooded hillside with many patios where sightings of deer and hummingbirds are common. Minutes from heart of Hollywood, Sunset Strip, Universal Studios, and Warner Brothers. This house features all original hardwood floors, Talavera tiles, wooden beamed ceiling, French doors and windows and a large Spanish tiled terrace where you can eat alfresco under the sun or the stars. This 1930s light-filled house includes a large Sony flat screen HDTV, wood burning fireplace, new central A.C./heat, a full kitchen/breakfast area with new stainless steel appliances, dining room, both master and 2nd. bedroom have queen size mattresses. High speed WI-FI and a laundry room equipped with washer & dryer & additional shower.


Bedrooms have queen sized mattresses, high speed WiFi and a laundry room equipped with washer & dryer. Waking in the master bed is like waking in a tree house. You're surrounded by trees including the bamboo outside the window. Close to shopping, dining, fitness gym, world class museums and entertainment. Minutes to hiking in Runyon Canyon & Hollywood Reservoir. Thirty minutes to the beach and 45 minutes to Disneyland. Come relax in style at this spectacular-view home that is secluded yet is only minutes from the Sunset Strip and Hollywood hot spots. Our house is both unique and comfortable.

This house can be rented as either a 2 bedroom 1.5 bath, or rent only the detached studio with bath, sofa-bed and kitchen. Email me if you want more photos.

Why the Owner Chose Hollywood: We fell in love with the Hollywood Hills back in the mid 90s and decided to buy an old Hollywood Home built in the 1930s this year. It's a magical place with stunning views, including the Hollywood sign and it's like our own private retreat with a small bamboo forest outside our bedroom window. We both have always loved old Spanish style houses and this one exudes charm.

The Unique Benefits at this House: HDTV, free telephone calls across U.S. and Canada, air conditioner, kitchen includes gas cook top, microwave, toaster/oven, blender, coffee maker, WiFi, broadband Internet, bamboo forest.

                          Why the Owner Chose Hollywood Hills:
                          We fell in love with the Hollywood Hills back in the mid 90s and decided to buy an old Hollywood Home built in the 1930s this year. It's a magical place with stunning views, including the Hollywood sign and it's like our own private retreat with a small bamboo forest outside our bedroom window. We both have always loved old Spanish style houses and this one exudes charm.
