Property description

Villa Knoll is a stunning example of mediterranean architecture designed by noted architect Franz Herding in 1925. This 3500 square foot magnificent mini-estate has been lovingly restored and seamlessly updated by RP Designs offering state of the art amenities while maintaining classic architectural integrity and character of this Golden Era home. The professionally landscaped specimen gardens with new pool and spa have been painstakingly designed by Sirak Landscapes. Featuring stunning views from virtually every room, this 3 story showplace sits on a knoll above Hollywood. The elegant 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath floor plan offers comfortable proportions impeccably executed with glamor and charm. No system or finish has been overlooked. Extensive features include a new master suite with stunning indoor/outdoor bath, an exquisite new kitchen with Ceaserstone marble counters and top-of-the-line appliances, open plan dining and living spaces, espresso oak floors, a 16 foot arched ceilinged living room with massive picture window to the view, roof terrace with 360 degree views and a charming guest casita with separate entrance. There are terraces, balconies and outdoor living spaces everywhere you look. The setting is tranquil yet you are literally minutes to Universal, Warner Brothers and Disney Studios, downtown LA and Hollywood and all that Los Angeles has to offer. Perfect for movie and business execs or families wanting luxury accommodations while vacationing.
