CLOSE TO UNIVERSAL, WARNER BROS, HOLLYWOOD, WEST HOLLYWOOD, BEVERLY HILLS AND WESTSIDE
We have welcomed so many incredible families on adventures to Universal that is so close - less than 5 miles away by car or a luxury option in LA being 1 mile from a subway station that is one stop from Universal City (save on parking and driving!). We are a hop skip and a jump to Warner Brothers (5 Miles), Hollywood (6 miles), West Hollywood (6.5 Miles) and over the hill from Beverly Hills (9 Miles). For a day on the West Side, Brentwood is just 14 miles and a day at the beach, the the Santa Monica Pier is 20 Miles.
The property has an orchard with 17 mature and fruit bearing trees and vines, offering something to pick and enjoy all year long, bringing new life to the notion of farm to table! With fruit pickers provided, please enjoy whatever is in season, including lemons, grapefruits, Haas avocados, Bacon avocados, mandarin and navel oranges, clementines, apples, figs, grapes, olives, guavas and pineapples. With three ponds, multiple water features and beds of aloe, roses, irises, camellias, and many other native plants, the outdoor spaces bloom into a lush retreat while you enjoy the pool, jacuzzi, hammock, grass areas, patios or decks in the shade or under the SoCal sunshine in the private fenced backyard.
We have over 10,000 small and medium white string lights strung, wrapped, and hung in the backyard surrounding the pool, jacuzzi and patio under the avocado trees to light up the backyard and bring the stars a little closer.
ABOUT MY HOME
This traditional farmhouse was designed by noted Los Angeles architect Robert Byrd and built in 1939. Byrd was known for his modern "indoor–outdoor" style that we have tried to live up to and his use of bird houses embedded in the actual structure. You will notice the two bird houses on the front of the house above the windows of the second story. This is a Standalone Construction that is 2,000 square foot home with no shared walls on a 10,000 square foot lot with the original wood floors and brick fireplaces remain in the original rooms of the house. Private, Fenced Side and Backyards. Front yard to street (no fence). House is a on tranquil, low traffic street with no connecting through streets on either side which is a perk the layout of the neighborhood provides. You would be renting the entire property to enjoy and we would not be on the premises.
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD / VALLEY VILLAGE
The house is located in a quiet pocket neighborhood that is 2 blocks by 8 blocks in the heart of Valley Village, California. The quaint 2.09-square-mile Valley Village lies a hop skip and a jump from Universal City, just north of Studio City, east of Sherman Oaks and Encino, southwest of North Hollywood and west of Burbank in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles.
