About The Owner

I'm a documentary filmmaker, journalist and run my own global non-proft. I am usually traveling to farflung patches of dirt. I Live in LA and the Bay Area. I wear my Irish roots proudly, I love to stand on my head in strange places (lately the Sahara desert, ask for a picure), my young adult son amazes me daily. Used to live in Africa, where I retreat to regularly. My place is perfect for artists, writers, dreamers, those who love to be surrounded by peace and beautiful objects.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Carlson Park

The best thing about my home is its feeling of peace. I have worked to make it this way, and filled it with objets d'art from around the world from my travels. There are also tons of windows and lots of light. A beautiful garden and access to outdoor living!

What makes this house unique

lots of light, skylights, open space, view, light everywhere!

Excellent stay at zen retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in the modern zen loft! Even as a family of four, the loft was spacious, with ample and comfortable seating and great outdoor space! It was clean and well-maintained with beautiful linens, blankets and a great mid-century modern/California aesthetic!

The washer and dryer were very convenient and we visited Jackson Market, right up the street, at least twice a day! and don't miss the Sony Studio tour! It was excellent and we saw Bill Hader!

This bright, airy, happy space was even better than we hoped! We would definitely recommend it!

Thank you Amie, for your were a great host in absentia!
