Multiple indoor-outdoor living areas and over sized rooms with gleaming hardwood floors and walls of windows form the backdrop for a superb collection of retro and modern furnishings and art. The house is perfect for entertaining and yet private and tranquil when you want it to be with multiple private sitting areas.
A large inviting solar heated pool and BBQ patio area guarantees outdoor fun. Located on a street to street lot w/ a 2 car garage entry, gourmet kitchen, wet bar, formal living room, family room with a 60” flat screen HDTV, a wood burning stone fireplace and sun room with dining. A land line is provided offering free nationwide phone service. Also, 7mb wifi assures quick internet service.
The kitchen has new top-end stainless steel appliances and high end cookware plus an open floor plan and cozy built-in booth with seating for 6. An additional formal dining area is in the Sunroom which leads out to the pool area.

NOTE: This bedroom can be used as a 'private nanny suite' since it has a private en suite bath + kitchenette and has doors that close it off from the rest of the house. When not used as a 'nanny suite', the kitchenette located next to main kitchen doubles as a butler pantry with a compact refrigerator, sink & stove and stack laundry. A second laundry area is located in a bedroom closet.
There are 2-1/2 bathrooms in the house. The master bath, newly remodeled features a 2 sink vanity, a tub, a separate shower stall and a toilet with a heated seat and water cleansing feature.

INTERACTION W/ GUESTS Guests have complete privacy. If needed, I am available by email or phone with any questions that may come up.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD This area north of Los Feliz Boulevard is commonly referred to as the Los Feliz Hills consisting of multimillion-dollar homes with many of its inhabitants being involved in creative pursuits. Our house is less than a 5 minute drive to a golf course, tennis courts, horse back riding rentals, the Greek Theater, Griffith Park Observatory, the Los Angeles Zoo and the Gene Autry Museum. A 10 minute drive will take you into Hollywood or fantastic shopping at the Americana and Glendale Galleria Malls. We're also a short drive to Dodger's Stadium, LA Live, the Staples Center and Universal Studios. Depending on traffic, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Disneyland and 6 Flags Magic Mountain are a little more than 30 minutes away.
GETTING AROUND Easy access to the I-5 (Golden State freeway) at Los Feliz Blvd & Riverside Drive, and other interchanges including the 101 (Hollywood freeway) are nearby, as well as being convenient to Hollywood and Downtown via the surface streets including Sunset Blvd., Hollywood Blvd., Beverly Blvd, Temple or Vermont, all within a few minutes from this location. Los Angeles is a car-centric city but there is much mass transit available as well. A convenient bus stop is less than a block away and several metro (subway) lines are located within the Hollywood area.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE: This home is also walking distance to an entrance to Griffith Park with miles of hiking and cycling trails offering mountain and city views. The walking streets of Hillhurst and Vermont, and in between, lie just a few minute easy walk from the house, with any services you may need including trendy top rated restaurants, good grocery and fish/meat markets, post office, health food store, movie theater, live theatre shows, clubs and bars, used clothing and LA designer shops and much more.
Pool is solar heated so it is warm enough to swim from around May to September, depending on the weather (if it's cloudy or cold nights it loses heat overnight). We just installed more solar panels to give it more heating power.
Smoking is not allowed in the house, smoking is only allowed outside.
There is ultra high speed broadband wireless internet - 7 megabytes per second.
