Hollywood Hills house description

Retreat to your own private paradise in this 'one of a kind' hillside property, nestled in the Hollywood Hills, surrounded by serenity and expansive mountain views.

Enjoy this magical hideaway on a private, gated 1/2 acre lot 'away from it all', yet you are no more than minutes away from the heart of Hollywood in one direction, and the excitement of Studio City in another, with restaurants, shopping and nightlife all around!

No 'Hollywood' experience is complete without movie stars!! Your neighbors include Ryan Gosling, Miley Cirus, William Shatner and George Clooney! Stroll down the hill to Studio City's famous 'sushi row' and if you are lucky, you just might see George at one of his favorite spots!!

Beautifully furnished and decorated in warm, inviting earth tones, this home is a wonderful place for entertaining with balconies, windows and views all around, giving a bright, airy California experience of indoor outdoor living...

A large, spacious Master Bedroom with French doors opens to a wrap around balcony with the best views in the house (and that's saying something!!)

Modern fully equipped kitchen with all stainless steel appliances. Sit with a cup of morning coffee and watch the hummingbirds fly right up outside your window, or follow the red tailed hawks in the distance..

Huge sliding doors open off the living room (with 52' flat panel TV and fireplace) out to the patio with panoramic views out over the mountains and the Studio City lights.. the perfect place to enjoy a cocktail at sunset or an after dinner drink..

The formal dining room (with fireplace and windows all around!) opens to a private, secluded patio, with Gas BBQ and outdoor dining area to enjoy our beautiful CA days and dreamy summer nights.. with MORE spectacular views!!

If you feel like swimming, there is a great local pool nearby which guests can use for a fee... it also has a restaurant and all facilities on the premises.. see photos!

There is a detailed guest manual of everything you will ever need to know about the house, the neighborhood and what to do it LA! (Including George's local sushi spot!), so you can really have an 'insiders' experience of this wonderful city and all it has to offer..This home is a primary residence, reflected in the many thoughtful things touches that make you feel at home...

This house is 'turn key' stocked with everything you will need..
Just bring yourself and relax and enjoy your vacation!!
This home is only available during periods the owner is away, so if your dates line up, you are one of the lucky ones! (Although, feel free to inquire if it shows unavailable.. sometimes it can work!)

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: I am a single mom from Australia and we spend alot of the school summer holidays away... hence the availability of this house! My kids are ages 7 and 10. Their dad is a 'Bona Fide' Film Producer and has produced many movies you may have heard of! This is my primary home, and my hope is you will have as much fun as we have here, and also that you take as loving care of it as I will of you as my guests!!

                  Why the Owner Chose Hollywood Hills:
                  This property is a ONE OF A KIND!!! High up on a hill, it has a 'Birds Eye' view of the whole world!.. Seven mountain ranges all around, to be precise. Yet TOTAL privacy!! We wanted somewhere we could be close to all that the city offered, but could 'get away from it all' and feel like we were elsewhere when we came home...

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It is that rare mix of privacy, seclusion and serenity, and SUCH INCREDIBLE VIEWS!! I feel like I am looking out over the whole world!! It feels SO EXPANSIVE and SO NOURISHING...
