Want to live in a certified celebrity house, surrounded by other celebrities and views of the Hollywood Sign from every bedroom? Then the Lake Hollywood Estates home at 3040 Arrowhead Drive in Los Angeles could be the star-power address you’re looking for.
The five-bedroom, four-bathroom, 2,684-square-foot renovated house is on the market at $2,247,000 by its current well-known owners: legendary L.A. author John Rechy (“City of Night,” “The Miraculous Day of Amalia Gomez”) and his husband, film producer Michael Ewing (“Tommy Boy,” “50 First Dates,” “The longest Yard,” “Get Smart”).
“This house seems to resonate with the people who have been looking at it who are in the entertainment industry because it’s peaceful, private, and has Griffith Park right behind it,” said listing agent Terry Canfield, a REALTOR®-Sales Associate with our Beverly Hills office.
“It’s like an oasis overlooking the park’s canyons, right below the Hollywood Sign in a celebrity enclave. Everybody up there is in the business.”
Terry and Rose Ware, her partner in the same office, don’t like to drop names–unless asked. But they were asked, and divulged a few of the home’s famous neighbors, all clients of the longtime real estate duo, as are the current owners:
The house is on more than a quarter-acre of lushly landscaped grounds graced by stately palm trees, flowering gardens, and rolling lawns. Interior design elements include obsidian black granite counters, custom wood cabinetry, Grohe fixtures, maple floors, and three fireplaces.
The two-story foyer showcases a hand-forged Art Deco staircase and chandelier. The stylish living room, dining room, kitchen, and family room open through French doors to the spacious patio, yard and views.
A chef’s kitchen with large picture window features Wolf and Miele appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and breakfast bar, and shares a fireplace, wet bar, and built-in Sub-Zero 150-bottle wine fridge with the family room.
The upstairs level offers four bedrooms including two master suites with fireplace, custom closet, and luxurious bathrooms. The guest bedroom has a separate entrance. The house is conveniently close to movie studios, hiking trails, and the W Hotel.
