About the property

Located in a quiet cul-de-sac of a residential neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley in the hills of Sherman Oaks, among million dollar homes. This freshly painted home has both valley and mountain views, yet it is close to all Los Angeles has to offer.

Every room has been updated. There is a chef’s kitchen with granite countertops, 5 burner cooktop, microwave, wine refrigerator, complete with pots, pans, dishes, and everything else you would need to make yourself at home, a breakfast room, and double convection oven, filtered hot and cold water. Keurig coffee maker with enough pods for the first week of your stay.

Enjoy the pond less waterfall from from the master bedroom, with it's newly renovated en-suite bath which boasts a skylight and shower with room for two.

The living room has a 55” wide screen with HD for sports or movies, and DirecTV, and Apple TV to enjoy on a down-filled sectional sofa.

All beds have a double pillow top with luxury linens, down pillows and down comforters. You can relax in the library/office when not out and about in the city, complete with Wi-Fi and wireless printer. The leather sofa becomes a full size bed with a full sized mattress.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of nature when not out and about enjoying all L.A. has to offer. Put peanuts out in the morning, and you can watch the Blue Jays come for their “breakfast” as you have your coffee. See squirrels play and the finches and other birds feed from the feeder. If lucky, you may even see a deer that live in the hills and come to drink from the waterfall and snack on the succulents. Or, you can just sit on the patio enjoying the serenity of the waterfall and canyon and valley views.

The house boasts a brand new central AC unit. There is a new washer and dryer in the garage available for use, as well as a gas barbecue on the patio, with seating for 10.

Located where the 405 and 101 freeways meet, this property is literally minutes to all major L.A. attractions:

5 minutes to Getty Center

15 minutes to Universal Studios

15 minutes to Brentwood

15 minutes to Hollywood

15 minutes Beverly Hills

30 minutes to Malibu or Santa Monica

1 hour to Disneyland

1 ½ hours to Santa Barbara

Although the views are stunning, this property sits over the 405 freeway, and there will be some traffic noise when outside. Your pet will be considered, however, the back is not fenced in.

Lovely Home with a View

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home that is well maintained and fully stocked from a gourmet kitchen to the practical study with a functioning wifi and copy machine. Nestled near a cul-de-sec on a high cliff with extraordinary views, this is truly a "home away from home." Well situated near shops and restaurants, it is also very accessible to major highways surrounding Los Angeles. A very pleasant stay for a week in a home you would be proud to call your own.

This is a wonderful home with all of the essentials for a vacation away with at home living.

  • 5 of 5

This Briarwood Drive home in Sherman Oaks is a wonderful property and was a great experience for us while visiting in the Los Angeles area. It is clean and comfortable and decorated with the eye and hand of an experienced designer. It had all the comforts of being in our own home. The beds and bedding were the most comfortable we've ever experienced. The layout is very nice and the views are spectacular. All of the essentials were there and available for our use. Joey was a wonderful host and available to us by cell phone and email all of the time during our stay. Everything you would need was present in the home. We are extremely happy with the experience of our stay and can't wait to visit again. We hope the property is available whenever we visit the area. The home is centrally located for everything we wanted to do in the Los Angeles, Malibu, Burbank and Hollywood area during our stay. It is a hilltop vista with no through traffic We loved being able to feed the Blue Birds each morning. Thank you to Joey for the opportunity to experience your property. Joe Bender Ballston Spa, NY.

Our home away from home in LA

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to say enough good stuff about the home and our host, J. The pictures don't do it justice, as the view is just stunning over LA and the hills to the west. We actually saw the little deer pictured in the photos (freaked my son out, as he's a city-boy :))The house is appointed/decorated very nicely, just like someone's home and not at all like a rental. The kitchen is gourmand quality and everything is there plus some. I could easily host the Thanksgiving meal there without missing a beat. There is easy-to-get-to retail and grocery close, and a Whole Foods at the bottom of the hill from the house. We went to Venice, Santa Monica, and Universal while we were there and all were very accessible. Disney is a bit of a ways, but it's in Anaheim of course. We gave the kids (and ourselves) a couple of "down" days and the home was very comfortable to just hang out in. We won't be staying anyplace else in LA.
