About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
Originally built in 1961 by Award winning Architect Joseph Raella, it's been lovingly renovated with modern luxuries, and a decidedly Japanese style with an amazing Japanese bathroom with Cedar 'Ofuro' soaking tub, built by master craftsmen of Kiarts. Entrance with maple wood 'genkan,' to sit and put away your shoes. Downstairs is a Tatami Meditation room with Shoji screens, a table with a sunken floor for your feet, and terraced garden outside.
Wood floors, wood burning fireplace, period furniture, in a spacious, 2700 sq. ft, open floor plan. Heywood Wakefield dining set and end tables. Master bedroom set of custom made, maple furniture, new Hypo-allergenic mattress, dressing room with Shoji screen, Mac computer, and 60 inch Flat panel HD TV, with, DVD, Blue Ray, Cable select, and Yamaha Monitor Speakers.
Patio outside of kitchen with table and 8 chairs, gas Barbeque and soft lights for nighttime entertainment. 2nd patio outside of bedrooms #2 and #3 with table, chairs and sweet scented gardenias. Down below is a 1000 square foot grass yard and play structure that is surrounded by a bamboo grove. (Extremely rare to have a yard in the Hills.)
Situated in the historic Beachwood Canyon area beneath the famous Hollywood sign, it's only a 10 minute walk down to the local Market and Coffee shop. A 5 minute walk up the hill puts you at the entrance path down to the Hollywood Resevoir, surrounded by a 3 mile round jogging path. Or take the other path, walk along the ridge line past Madonna's house to the Child and Dog park, right at the best lookout of the Hollywood sign there is. Take a 5 minute ride to the top of the Canyon to the Horse stables, which have been there since 1923 and take a ride around the sign.
Weekly gardner. Available for photo shoots, commercials, and feature films.

Why the Owner Chose Hollywoodland, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
I was struck by how beautiful and unique this home was, and how it is centrally located in Los Angeles. It's not far from the Studios, Downtown, Beverly Hills, Koreatown, Little Tokyo, and a variety of hot spots. Hollywood is an old area with a lot of history, personality and mystery. It is wildly diverse, and you can find whatever you want. There are urban streets, beautiful rows of old California Bungalows, right next to the peace of the hills.
