The most obvious tourist attraction close at hand is the Hollywood Sign. Hike takes about 45 min to 1 hour (with short stops to take in the view) with return trip usually quicker (walking down hill!). The climb is only steep at the start of trail, giving way to leisurely winding road that leads to point above and behind the letters. Trailhead starts at the end of the driveway to Sunset Ranch which is just up the road from the studio, at the junction of Hollyridge Drive and Beachwood Drive. At the top of the driveway, the trailhead is up a short steep path to your right. Trail leads pretty clearly to the sign as long as you chose the uphill forks in road. Other trails are accessed here and one can hike to the Observatory, Bronson Caves, or beyond the Hollywood Sign to a spot called Wishing Tree where you can descend to Lake Hollwood (the Reservoir).


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Family of 5. (presently 4 of us here in Los Angeles, one away at college). Our occupations in the film industry brought us to Los Angeles 25 years ago ( from UK and from NYC). Family lifestyle is casual. We love our neighborhood, movies, other forms of art and all that is local.

Why the Owner Chose Hollywood Hills:
This studio was built over our garage with long-term guests in mind, our own family and friends. We wanted it comfortable, efficient and personal. We love our location and wanted to create an extension of our home that was completely private.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
This hood is best! The quiet, the aromatic canyon brush, the sounds of the birds are all sublime. Yet, it is so close to all you could want to experience the city. Tourist attractions are close by and Hollywood boasts all types of cuisine, not only the fancy and the trendy restaurants but the real-deal local food: thai, armenian, indian, central american, you name it; it's here. Especially exciting is the resurgence of unique shops and walkable communities in and around Hollywood. And of course there is always a beautiful stroll down the canyon roads or on the trails high above the city right at the doorstep. Farmer's markets abound (nearly every day of the week within 10 minutes) and plenty of unique entertainment so close to home. If that isn't enough, the metro station and bus hub is 5 minutes down the hill and makes exciting new downtown life accessible.
