Hollywood Hills apartment description

Walking distance to the heart of Hollywood and environs. Three blocks to Graumans Chinese theatre, Hollywood Blvd, the Metro Station and the Dolby Theatre (formerly the Kodak.) Two blocks to Runyan Canyon. Return to a quiet retreat in the hills after a day of Hollywood adventure and then head back down to the night for restaurants, clubs, movies, strolling or over to Sunset Blvd for more of the same.
We are adjacent to Residential homes in Outpost Estates. Our cozy studio is nestled in the corner on the second story of our two building complex. Private stairs lead up to this unit and to our unit. Laundry facilities are on site. Covered/gated parking for one car . We are husband and wife owners/managers on site to welcome and assist you.

Ambiance: Because we live in the building, as do several of our grown children, it is our home and we want all of our tenants and guests to feel like it is their home also. There is a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Outdoor garden seating areas.

Neighbors: Tour buses stop in the area while pointing out celebrity homes and the neighborhood is full of interesting winding streets and homes in the hills of Hollywood.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1985

                          About the owner: We are husband and wife and raised four children in another part of LA but got into acquiring apartments in the 80's. Hollywood seemed like a good option. We moved into one of the apartments in 2001 which made it easier to renovate, being on site. We were empty nesters until a few years ago when three of our children, plus two spouses, moved into units in the building. Pam's parents met at the corner of Hollywood and Highland in 1940.

                          Why the Owner Chose Hollywood Hills:
                          A friend invited us to join him in purchasing the property. It was classic for LA and appeared to have much potential charm. Considerable renovation over the years and our adult children moving in have now made it our home and as our tenants also say 'It is not an apartment, it is a home!'

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Location, location, location! We can get to airports, cultural events, restaurants, clubs, movies and a plethora of activities via foot, metro or car. The creative process keeps this area alive.
