Owner info

About the owner: Hey There! Life has been quite a fun ride. Born in Texas- on a quarter horse ranch-- big hats, belt buckles and hair! Then swept in Los Angeles to live a very magical life in the hills and beach of our fabulous city. Met everyone.. did everything.. loved every minute. And so will you. I have worked as a party planner -- so no request will seem too detailed and I want you to call on me to help you seek the best of our fair city. I am now an interior designer and love to make people happy with style and comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Melrose, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
I raised my daughter in this house and started a little business making baby shoes. The business grew and we moved to Santa Barbara. We loved it here and found the neighborhood charming and safe, I never want to sell this house. We poured much love into the remodel and will always keep this home for friends and relatives that need their LA Home!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location! Location! Location! Located right by the best walking area of West Hollywood (between Santa Monica Blvd. and Melrose), this house is exactly where you should be in Los Angeles! That is, close to the Sunset strip, the shops, the restaurants and the nightlife and just a few minutes away from Beverly Hills and Hollywood! The house which was custom redone in 2010-- with its combination of old world architecture with modern updates; hickory hard wood floor; Venetian plaster walls; a custom designed kitchen; bathrooms; private backyard, with beautiful landscaping that includes 100 year old tree... Arthur.
