Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: After having lived in many nice areas of Los Angeles, we discovered Los Feliz in 2000 fell madly in love, and decided to settle down. We bought this home because of the prime location, and because it was our favorite building on the street. We love living under the magnificent 4,000 acre Griffith Park with its two 18 hole and one 9 hole golf courses, being within minutes from the many culturally diverse restaurants, numerous freeways, the subway and thus ALL of greater Los Angeles. We love walking in the quiet, surrounding neighborhoods where the filmmakers from the '20's built their homes and studios, the air fragrant with orange blossoms and jasmine. Just down the street are Walt Disney's first offices and Charlie Chaplin's theater, still operating as The Vista. Barnsdall Park, with its Frank Lloyd Wright home is a ten minute walk south and on Wednesday's we picnic on the hill after picking up quesadillas and fresh avocados at the Farmer's Market in the parking lot below. Weekly, we walk 'the stairs' that wind through homes in the hills north of us, up to Griffith Observatory. Some evenings we walk down the block to Skylight Books to hear an author read from their newly published book, or catch the latest movie at the Los Feliz 3. This is truly a dream neighborhood to live in, whether it's for ten years or ten days.
Some members of our household speak fluent Mandarin Chinese, Castilian Spanish, and central Texan, should you need translators.
Why the Owner Chose Los Angeles: One reason we love this location is that we can leave our car parked and walk to so many activities. We leave for the movies 5 minutes before the movie starts and don't miss the previews or credits. We can walk to 10 or 15 restaurants within as little as 2 minutes of home in a well lighted friendly neighborhood. It is not unusual to have filming activity and celebrity sightings in the neighborhood.
We loved the charming details of the property, the many windows, the coved ceilings, the crown molding, the ancient fig tree and grape vine in the backyard, the HISTORY of the place and the area. And the ability to all live as a family under one roof, to raise a family in a beautiful home and a friendly neighborhood.
