About Lloyd Kurtz

Lloyd Kurtz has lived in this house since 1990. He is a licensed contractor and enjoys gardening, traveling, photography and telling jokes (sometimes some really good ones!).

Lloyd Kurtz purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Lloyd Kurtz chose Los Angeles County

This property is a 1920's Tudor style home. Legend has it that the house was built by Mr. Lankershim himself, of whom Lankershim Blvd was named after. Lankershim helped to develop the San Fernando Valley in the 1920's and 30's. The movie Chinatown with Jack Nicholsen basically portrays Lankershim's story,

What makes this apartment unique

What make this such a great neighborhood is the proximity to all of the fabulous shopping and dining that Ventura Blvd is famous for. It is quiet and safe as well as being a fabulous walking area with panoramic views; there is a reason the stars live around here.

Amazing place to stay! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay! Loved it! We love the little apartment… It had breathtaking views and was so comfortable that we found ourselves wanting to stay there all day but it was a nice place to come home to after a long days adventure … Lloyd and his wife were so kind and helpful. We want to come back again and again and again. Thank you Mr. Kurtz for your hospitality. We look forward to seeing you again.

What a Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was a great space to stay while working on a project in Studio City. The neighborhood was very quiet and parking was available on the street directly in front of the gate; the owner, Lloyd, put out some traffic cones reserving the spot for me. The unit was very comfortable and superbly equipped - I lacked for nothing. The bathroom was amazing - a deep jetted soaker tub and a 4'x4' dual-head/control shower. The "walk-out basement" guest suite is situated on a hiliside which means a couple of dozen steps to get to, so be mindful if you have heavy luggage. I will definitely want to stay here again if I am in the area.

This property is located in the Studio City hills, but within walking distance to Ventura Blvd. Great shopping and dining are moments away. Universal and CBS Studios are 5 minutes from the home and the Hollywood Bowl is just a 10 minute drive.
