This house was built in 1953, completely renovated in 2008 to a gorgeous contemporary mid-century home...so sexy, the real estate agents in LA nicknamed it THE MADMEN HOUSE. Check it out to as the main home in the suspense thriller "THE PERFECT HOST" with David Hyde Pierce! Famous actors and professional athletes rent often.

This modern luxury designer home is located on a beautiful tree lined street in the foothills of the exclusive Los Feliz neigbhorhood.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, stylish with a wonderful pool area. We were a small family with two kids and had more space than we needed. The property is well kept and very comfortable.

Fantastic family base for a SoCal vacation

  • 5 of 5

The villa and pool were beautiful and communication with Todd was swift and easy.

We stayed with our daughter and her grandparents but the villa afforded us the layout and space that we needed as well as a great location to come together.

Fab restaurants/ bars and grocery stores all close by and the villa is also very handy for Dodgers stadium and all of the usual tourist spots.

We would certainly recommend this villa to anyone looking for the very best in LA

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a couple of colleagues while we were in town for a week long conference. Even though we had to drive into downtown, the commute was not a problem, and it was so much nicer staying in this neighborhood! It's very close to Griffith Park (great running), and tons of great places to eat. The house itself was wonderful- it was the perfect size for the three of us, with great living areas and a kitchen with everything you need. Loved the coffee maker! Would definitely stay here again. Todd was great at communicating- thanks so much!

We loved the house, the pool, the kitchen and the location.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very responsive when we had a question. The house was clean, beautifully decorated and well-appointed. We loved Los Feliz and the proximity to Griffith Park.

All in all a great stay!

Magical experience

  • 5 of 5

This house is very comfortable to just hang out if you don't ever leave. Never mind there is a lot of traffic going by on the street, you don't hear it or get have a sense of it at all including sitting by the pool. Kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses etc to make a holiday meal- which we did! Beds were so comfortable we all slept til 10 am. Bathrooms are all very modern and high tech. Wonderful Nano windows open the whole house to outside deck area. Convenient shopping to grocery stores and specialty grocers. Beautiful neighborhood, amazing trees and flowering shrubs. Nearby park. Walk to the Griffith park. Meticulously cared for, very nice, high end furnishings. It doesn't get better than this! Live like a celeb for a weekend. (There are a few who live nearby.) It is not near the beaches but other than that location is wonderful for that part of town. Owner was highly responsive to questions, left good information for visitors at the house. Would definitely go back again.
