Hollywood's original gem, this beautifully renovated and engaging Pre-Craftsman was one of the original homes in the Hollywood Hills. It presents an eclectic blend of style and layered texture that immediately provokes inspiration and emotion. The dominance and warmth of rich wood, the voluminous ceiling and a massive Noguchi moon pendant recall a mid century era. This is an homage to architect Frank Lloyd Wright and others, who were deeply inspired by the stunning use of wood and shape used in Japanese design. Original Frank Lloyd Wright glass windows bring an added touch of authenticity to the overall gorgeous patina. The living room is the coup de grace, with vast two story wood paneled ceiling, double story windows invite nature and light inside with a loft library to breathe in this unique and extraordinary space. On the upper level, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - the principal bedroom with lounging deck, perfect for morning yoga with city and canyon views; an additional deck off one of the secondary bedrooms has a separate garden entrance, making it a great guest room, office or nanny quarters. On the main level, the updated kitchen with new Viking range opens to the family room with two way fireplace, a sunroom/breakfast nook, pinterest worthy pink powder room and a den/office that carries out onto the "grass" lawn. A private and fully fenced entertaining oasis, the property has high bamboo and shaded trees ideal for dinner parties. With a built-in BBQ framed in Heath ceramic tiles and a "plunge pool"/hot tub, its magical at night under the stars. Tucked away in nature, this is a private and lush sanctuary in the heart of the Hollywood Hills w ample parking, stunning views and many work spaces to stimulate creativity. An absolute one of a kind, last of its kind - lived in, entertained in and loved by many of the finest creatives in Hollywood history.
