Property description

This charming one bedroom, detached house is the original 1940s stableman’s quarters for the Bette Davis estate. The cabin is fresh, vibrant and newly refurbished while still maintaining some of its unique, original features. The cool, open living room and kitchen has high ceilings, exposed beams, white wood floors and original art on the walls. The front door and main windows face the lawn, trees and hammock, and the stable block. The back windows look out over the neighboring horse paddocks and in the far distance, the LA Equestrian Center and the setting sun beyond that.

The BEDROOM is small, simple, with a Custom Comfort (very comfortable) queen sized bed. There’s built-in closet/storage area. A small fold out couch at the foot of the bed (that can be used as a second bed)

The newly remodeled BATHROOM has a groovy tiled shower and looks out toward the pool.

Named after Humphrey Bogart’s character Michael O’Leary, the stableman in Davis’ 1939 film Dark Victory; the cabin enjoys a 32” flat screen tv with both digital cable and Apple TV, there’s wifi throughout the estate with heating and air-conditioning recently installed.

I live in one of the houses on the estate with my two young children. We have keyless entry and the grounds are large enough that the house feels very private. With the added bonus that we are right there to answer questions or fix any thing that may arise. We share the estate with other houses that are available http://www.vrbo.com/488798 and http://www.vrbo.com/465113. They enjoy massive organic gardens, almost half acre lawn with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, fire pit, chickens, art studio, fountain area, fruit trees… and Wi-Fi throughout. O’Leary's Cottage the most private house available, at the far end of long lawn

It is not uncommon as the sun is setting that we all gather to play or chat on the lawn, the park, or in the front orchard. It is a unique place and a little hard to describe, it feels a little like a village on a summer day.

Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, and sirens typical of city living. (I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country).

The neighborhood is upscale and residential, many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon …).

Additionally, there are four golf courses very near, as well as Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in the park.

The City is redeveloping the LA River and there are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the infamous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out some of the traffic).

Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events). A Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and well within walking distance.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I live on the estate with my two young children Winston and Vivienne. I was honored to receive the Hero Host Award at this years Airbnb awards ceremony. I am a painter, mum, and am originally from London, England.

Why the Owner Chose Burbank:
The NEIGHBORHOOD upscale and residential. Many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon …). Additionally, there are four golf courses very near, as well as Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in Grffith Park. Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, dogs and sirens typical of city living. I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood and into the Park. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the infamous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out some of the traffic). Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events). A Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and within walking distance.
