Property description

What makes this guest residence unique is that it has its own entrance and is quite private from the main residence. Also, you feel as though you just might be in the quiet countryside of Provence but know you can be in all the excitement of Sunset Strip within two to three minutes. Picture yourself overlooking Beverly Hills, Catalina, and the distant ocean. But only Moments away from Sunset Plaza where the famous Chateau Marmont is where you can go for a cool meal or Katana for Sushi. This home was owned byDon Costa an American recording artist, arranger, conductor, and record producer. He discovered singer Paul Anka, and is perhaps best known for conducting and arranging several hit albums by Frank Sinatra, including Sinatra and Strings and My Way. Built in 1958 This enchanting and special remodeled home has entertained many of Hollywood’s A-List celebrities! Situated just above Sunset Boulevard, 1/2 mile from the Sunset Strip and Sunset Plaza, it boasts fabulous canyon and city views. This is truly a special retreat! It is conveniently located to all Los Angeles attractions, most diverse restaurants, and world famous destinations.

This property is tucked into a canyon at the end of a quiet road offering canyon breezes and spectacular views of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. It is surrounded by Californian foliage and palms. It has an open floor plan, which is perfect for a small dinner Al Fresco! This suite offers privacy, luxury and comfort. It is centrally located to tourist attractions and is just minutes from unparalleled nightlife, dining, and shopping options.

Enter through the private door leading down into your own personal paradise. The first terrace off of the living room and bedroom is a lovely area for reading, Al Fresco dining, or maybe just a cup of coffee to start your day. Enter into the Living room which has three terraces surrounding it. Many choices for a glass of wine at the end of you day or to begin your evening. The inside and outside meld together to exemplify California living at it’s best.
Each of the rooms feature many windows as well as five sets of French doors throughout the suite all opening onto one of the three lovely terraces and the amazing views of the city lights of Beverly Hills. The kitchen, with a mix of stainless steel and high quality appliances are there for you. Simply relax and watch movies or sporting events on the HD LCD flat screen television. Of course there is high speed wifi throughout the suite.

The bedroom is a queen size bed with luxurious linens and towels. There is a very large closet with two luggage racks. Table linens, lint remover, sewing kit and extra pillows. Of course there is an iron and ironing board for you along with the full sized washer and dryer. Also we have a drying rack if you prefer for small items. I hope you enjoy it and love it here as much as we do. Look forward to your visit!

Why the Owner Chose The Bird Streets, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
We love this property and so far everyone of our guests have as well. It is just a lovely get away! Quiet and lush greenery with stunning city views. Yet in minutes you are in the midst of everything. Very convenient location to Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Century City and so many more areas. I think this property is special for several reasons. My husband Pat and I have been in the film and entertainment industry for over 35 years. In the film industry as well as the event and wedding industry along with the interior design industry. We have traveled personally for pleasure as well as for business around the world and have stayed in so many places. We have tried to think of everything one could need here at Provence and the hills for an enjoyable and comfortable trip.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location I think is really terrific and yet the setting is beautiful and quiet.
