Property description

This is truly a special property. The home was custom-built in 1956 hill-top among a small and private community with some of the best views of the city anywhere. In addition to tremendous views the home itself has an open floor plan with the entire back of the house having panoramic windows. The home is a nice blend of original character and tasteful upgrades.

The property is located ideally for a visit to Los Angeles. Within a 10-15 minute drive you can be in any part of the city including LAX airport, downtown LA, Santa Monica and the beach, Venice, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, etc. What makes the property an oasis is that although it is centrally located to all the city offers it has ultimate privacy. There are no rear neighbors as the property borders a 750+ acre preserve that includes miles of hiking trails. The landscape is one of the best features of the home with all sorts of large and exotic specimens from around the world.
The neighborhood is small, quiet and friendly. You can enjoy going for walks in the hill-top neighborhood or in the huge bordering park for miles of trails and views.

The swimming pool utilizes salt water (saline) sterilization so no harsh chemicals are used. The pool is heated through solar panels, or may be heated to your desired temperature using the gas heater (expense may apply). Additionally the spa/ jacuzzi utilizes a non-chlorine system for soft water. It has a built in stereo system and is perfectly located for taking in the city lights and stars at night. Enjoy the outdoor shower.

The house is fully equipped with all standard kitchen appliances. Vitamix blender, Wolf Gas Range, Dual Convection Ovens, etc. Nespresso coffee and espresso is provided for you. Bedding, linens, and towels are of high quality. Two Dishwashing machines. Front loading clothes washer and dryer. The house comes stocked with all the basics including body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc.

Wifi is available throughout with the maximum speed possible. Apple TV, Netflix, HBO, and cable included.

Parking is available right in the drive way or in front of the house.

Maid service is not included, but can be provided at a nominal expense if you desire it. Or you can keep it clean yourself with the cleaning supplies provided.

Renting to responsible parties only. Ideal for couples and small families or business travelers. Parties, weddings, group functions with approval only. Also available for longer term rentals. Email for more details including additional photos. Please let me know who you are in your email and what you're looking for. This is a private residence that has been built, furnished and maintained with much pride and is managed directly by the owner and rented selectively. Thanks.

Owner info

About the owner: I fell in love with and purchased this home 12 years ago from the original owners. I have spent the previous 12 years making tasteful upgrades while preserving the original character. This remains an ongoing process, so should you return you will find it even better than the last time. Thoughtfully designed interior and exterior. The home has character, I think you will agree on arrival. It's a special place...
