Burbank house description

This charming one bedroom, detached house is the original 1940s stableman’s quarters for the Bette Davis estate. It is fresh, vibrant and newly refurbished while still maintaining some of its unique, original features. The high ceilings of the kitchen and living room has exposed beams, white wood floors and original art on the walls.

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

The front door and main windows face the lawn, trees and hammock, and the stable block inhabited by Misty, a little gray pony, and Curly, a gentle giant; and our two lay hens (they are tended to twice daily). The back windows look out over the neighboring paddocks and in the far distance you can see horses on the trail around the LA Equestrian Center and the setting sun beyond that.
The BEDROOM is small and 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. The newly remodeled BATHROOM has a groovy tiled shower and looks out toward the pool.

The unique and historical nature of Rivergate estate make it a lovely oasis to stay in. Rivergate has a number of houses available through VRBO and Home Away. http://www.vrbo.com/479934 http://www.vrbo.com/488798
They enjoy massive organic gardens, almost half acre lawn with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, fire pit, horses and chickens, art studio, fountain area, fruit trees… and Wi-Fi throughout.
We are located just minutes from Hollywood, Los Feliz and the major studios: Warner Bros, NBC, CBS, Disney, Nickelodeon. And all the amenities of Griffith Park on your doorstep http://www.laparks.org/dos/parks/griffithpk/ . O’Leary’s Cabin is a perfect holiday spot and an oasis from work...
Please 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 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 the park.

The City just received a billion dollars and is redeveloping the LA River . 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 within walking distance.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: I am a painter and mum. I am originally from London, England, but have been in California for 14 years. I live on the estate with my two young children Winston and Vivienne. I was honored to receive the Hero Host Award at the Airbnb awards ceremony this winter.

                      Why the Owner Chose Burbank:
                      This is a special place. We are lucky to enjoy the country life; the lawn to play games, the horses to feed apples, the salt pool to cool off in the summer and the hot tub to encourage you in in the winter, and Griffith Park with all its attractions just out the back gate. We get fabulous weather year round, with the sun deck by the pool getting sunbathing temperatures most afternoons, even in January! And all this with the comforts of the city just minutes away.
