Property description

Ride the Hightower elevator to this exclusive hillside getaway; just a 10-minute walk from the famous Hollywood and Highland epicenter. Fully restored and ready for romantic weekend getaways, awards season or writers retreats. Walk to the Hollywood Bowl and all of the excitement Hollywood has to offer from this very private retro home.

Leave your cares behind you as you step off the elevator and up the stairs to the fabulous deck of this 2 bedroom 1 bath top floor unit. With head on jetliner views of downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and on a clear day you can see the ocean all the way to Catalina Island.

This centrally located property, just minutes to the 101 freeway, puts you at Universal Studios and the valley within 10 minutes.

Why Hollywood:
Being in the music industry requires one of us to be in Los Angeles frequently. We love the weather in Los Angeles and wanted to be a part of the revival of new Hollywood.
