Property description

This summer, we are renting our home for a single 2 week period (June 20-July 4). We just booked the first of these two weeks, but the second remains open!

We just completed a major bathroom remodel, which produced a magnificent large master bathroom plus a new powder room, bringing the total number of toilets in the home to 3. We have just posted photos to the VRBO website; check it out.

Last June, we completed a courtyard, which adds an outdoor living room and dining room, with tile fountain and fire pit. We also redecorated the living room. We still need to update the photos of both and also plan on doing this later this month.

The summer before, we completed a major kitchen/dining room+ remodel, which is magnificent (see photos). The remodel includes a gorgeous gourmet kitchen/dining room with lots of charm and all new high-end appliances.

These remodels have not only maintained but enhanced the charming details of this 1930's Spanish style house, including vaulted ceilings, arches, and hardwood floors.

There is a massive king bed in the master bedroom and a trundle bed in each of the other 2 bedrooms. Both trundle beds can open to a comfortable king size bed.

The house and backyard feel very peaceful and secluded even though it is very centrally located.

The backyard is great to entertain with a solar-heated pool, a gorgeous spanish tile patio and beautiful fruit trees: a large mango tree (rare for California), a lemon tree, orange trees, different varieties of palm trees, etc. Hummingbirds seem to prefer the front yard planted with cactus, palm trees, and several southwestern plants.

The pool is heated by solar panels all year long. The climate is ideal: it rarely gets cooler than 60 and warmer than 85 degrees Fahrenheit. There is central air conditioning and heating but neither is needed more than 30 days a year thanks to the usually perfect weather.

The neighborhood is safe and family friendly with lots of great restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Note that there is no TV/Cable at all in the house. There is a home theater system with a brand new projector and large projection screen in the living room. You can stream Netflix, Amazon or iTunes from the Apple TV.

A premium 'Sonos' sound system is installed throughout the house and connected to a Rhapsody music service (like Spotify). You can control the music throughout the house using any smartphone or tablet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are a family of 4 with 2 kids ages 13 (Claire) and 10 (Jonah). Abigail is a Professor of Sociology at UCLA and Dotan is a high-tech entrepreneur. We moved to LA from New York in 2002 and bought the house in 2003. We love the neighborhood: short walking distance to shops, schools, restaurants, movie theaters, and even a golf course, yet it feels clam and secluded if you walk into the backyard and soak in the pool. We get along great with all our neighbors and are quite social with many of them.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Park, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
We love our home and enjoy sharing it with others while we travel. We have done three massive remodels in the past 3 years, including a open kitchen/dining room, spacious courtyard, and new bathroom + powder room. In all of our remodels, we have kept the old Spanish feel and added new charm and details. People tell us that our house is a 'little jewel.'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is in an incredible location: Despite feeling like a peaceful oasis inside, the house is a short walk from some of LA's best restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Just 50 yards down the street is a trendy cafe/restaurant called FOOD. Several other cool West LA spots are a little further down the street within short walking distance. It is also only 5 miles from the beautiful Santa Monica beach and historic pier (takes less than 15 minutes by car on week-ends). UCLA is less than 2 miles away. Shopping wise, it is less than a mile away from both the Westside Pavilion (Macy's, Nordstrom, Landmark Movie Theater, etc.) and the Century City mall (Bloomingdale's, Tiffany's, Apple Store, The Container Store, etc.). For entertainment, there are at least 10 movie theaters within a 3-mile radius including the huge AMC Century City and the state of the art Landmark which you can easily walk to. A few theaters like the Geffen Playhouse are also close by. As far as city parks go, the house is only a block away from Rancho Park, which includes many tennis courts, an 18 holes golf course with driving range, a playground, an Olympic size swimming pool, an archery range, etc.
