This beautiful home is located in the “secret hippie enclave” of Mount Washington, above Eagle Rock, Highland Park, and Glassell Park. Whether you’re looking for comfort while visiting tourist destinations, or a longer-term rental for business, this house is perfect for you. Just 4 miles from downtown LA (you can see the skyscrapers at the bottom of the hill), you can make it to that meeting in about 20 minutes, during rush hour traffic. If you’re looking for mass transit options, the Southwest Museum Gold Line Metro station is at the bottom of the hill and bus lines run along Figueroa and Marmion Way at the base of the hill.
Just drive down the hill and you can visit the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, Heritage Square, the Lumis Home and the Audubon Center at Debs Park on your way into Highland Park, headed to new restaurants, coffee shops, and galleries (and active Hollywood filming locations). Glassell Park’s eateries and galleries are a drive down another side of the hill and Eagle Rock’s restaurants and stores await you on another side of the hill.
If you’re looking for hikes, there are four natural preserves on the hill for you to explore, within walking distance. 5 minutes away, you can hike from the Audubon Center to the top of Montecito Heights. Go star-sighting with a climb up Runyon Canyon (bring a camera for the views) with a 25 minute drive, hikes in Griffith Park are 20 minutes away - and include views of the Hollywood sign and a trip to the Griffith Observatory (get out the camera again).
You’re less than 15 minutes away from Dodger Stadium, the Rose Bowl, the San Antonio Winery, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, Pasadena, Downtown LA, Silverlake, Los Feliz, Hollywood, Glendale and Burbank. In Downtown LA, you can visit the Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Broad, LACMA, MOCA, and sites like the La Brea Tar Pits. The Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Chinese Theatre, Pantages, Ahmahnson, and hollywood tours are a 15 minute drive (avoid rush hours). Your trip to the beaches of Santa Monica and Venice will take you about 30 minutes. Universal Studios is 20 minutes and Disneyland a 35 minute drive. If you want to cruise Malibu, you’ll take a 48 minute drive to find Cher at Starbucks. You can day trip to Palm Springs, casinos, outlet malls, and Joshua Tree National Park in a little over an hour and a half each way. San Diego is a 2-hour drive south or a beautiful trip on the Amtrak Surfliner.
