Property description

This charming one bedroom, detached house is the original 1940s stableman’s quarters for the Bette Davis estate Riverbottom. The cabin is fresh, vibrant and newly refurbished while still maintaining some of its unique, original features.

The cool, open LIVING ROOM and KITCHEN has high ceilings, exposed beams, white wood floors and original art on the walls. The front door and main windows face the garden, trees and hammock, and the stable block. The back windows look out over the neighboring horse paddocks and in the far distance, the LA Equestrian Center and the setting sun beyond that.

The BEDROOM is small, simple, with a Custom Comfort (very comfortable) queen sized bed. There’s built-in closet/storage area. A small fold out couch at the foot of the bed (that can be used as a second bed).

The BATHROOM has a groovy tiled shower and looks out through arched windows toward the pool.

Named after Humphrey Bogart’s character Michael O’Leary, the stableman in Davis’ 1939 film Dark Victory; the cabin enjoys a 32” flat screen tv with both digital cable and Apple TV and Netfix, there’s wifi throughout the estate. Heating and air-conditioning are in the wall unit in the living room; the laundry (clothes washer and drier) in the adjoining utility room.

We have keyless entry and the grounds are large enough that the house feels very private. With the added bonus that we are right there to answer questions or fix anything that may arise.

We share the estate with other houses that are available for let

Rivergate is a private, historic equestrian ESTATE. It enjoys massive organic gardens, almost half acre of drought tolerant garden with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, hammocks, shade trees, French Lavender maze for toddlers to learn to walk through, art studio, fire pit, fountain area, fruit orchard, outdoor dining areas… and Wi-Fi throughout. O’Leary's Cottage the most private house available, at the far end of the sandy back garden. It is not uncommon as the sun is setting that we all gather to play or chat in the garden, the park, or in the front orchard. It is a unique place and a little hard to describe, it feels a little like a village on a summer day.

Car: Recommended

The neighborhood is upscale and residential, many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon …).

Additionally, there are four golf courses very near, as well as Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in the park.

The City is redeveloping the LA River and there are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the infamous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out some of the traffic).

Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events). A Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and well within walking distance.

Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, and sirens typical of city living. (I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I live part time on the estate with my two young children Winston and Vivienne. I am originally from London, England. I take my role as host very seriously and personally. I have won the Hero Award form another Holiday Rental site. We have a kind and hardworking team here and we do our very best to make sure that you have a great time.

Why the Owner Chose Riverside Rancho, Glendale, CA, USA:
The NEIGHBORHOOD upscale and residential. Many of the large houses have private stables and it is common to see cowboys riding in the streets. We are just a few miles from Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Atwater (two exits on the freeway, about 5 minutes). We are bicycling distance from the studios (NBC, CBS, Warner Bros, Disney, Nickelodeon …). Additionally, there are four golf courses very near, as well as Travel Town, the LA Zoo, The Autry Museum, several horse riding facilities and playgrounds, Pickwick ice-skating and bowling and of course the wildlife and 52 miles of hiking and horse riding trails in Grffith Park. Don’t let the rural setting and the hooting of the owls fool you, we are still in the heart of the city and you should be aware that you can sometimes hear the freeway, helicopters, dogs and sirens typical of city living. I mention it because it seems out of place while you lounge in the sun on the lawn feeling like you are out in the country.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There are great cycling trails and running tracks throughout the neighborhood and into the Park. Downtown Los Angeles is about 15 minutes away, depending a little on the infamous LA traffic (there is a shortcut through the park along Riverside Drive that is very pretty and cuts out some of the traffic). Burbank and Glendale are home to loads of shopping including the Americana (a high end outdoor mall with fountain, fine restaurants and events). A Pavilions supermarket is one of the finest around and within walking distance.
