Wonderfully romantic, this charming, Mediterranean-style villa just below iconic Griffith Observatory is the epitome of Southern California living. Located in a secluded hillside celebrity enclave, it’s an ideal retreat for living, entertaining, and working sheltered from the bustling city.
Boasting fantastic city-to-ocean views, the 1924 home in the Los Feliz neighborhood has been thoroughly updated. Showcasing the residence’s appeal to creative individuals, one of the four bedrooms is currently set up as a creative studio, and has a separate entrance accessed from the street.
Warm and inviting, the open-concept villa is flooded with natural light through multiple arched windows. The spacious living room features a dramatic fireplace, beamed vaulted ceiling, and French doors leading to one of several terraces with glorious views of city lights, the observatory, and the Pacific.
The gourmet kitchen dazzles home chefs with a full array of high-end stainless-steel appliances, a large center island, Spanish terracotta-style floor tiles, marble countertops, and its own fireplace. The kitchen leads directly to a patio through French doors, making alfresco dining a breeze.
An informal dining area exudes casual elegance with terraces on three sides, vaulted ceiling, another fireplace, and views to enjoy at every meal.
The enormous penthouse-level primary suite occupies the entire upper floor, surrounded by its own deck. It also has a vaulted ceiling, a sitting area with cozy fireplace, ocean and observatory views, a walk-in closet, and a grand en-suite with spa bath for soaking cares away while watching the sun set. Two of the other three bathrooms are also very large, and either could be used as a second primary suite. There’s loads of storage space inside, and the attached two-car garage is a rarity in the neighborhood.
The glorious pool and spa are perfect for entertaining or just relaxing in a quiet canyon setting above the city. Mature, drought-tolerant landscaping surrounds the entire property. Walking and hiking trails are nearby for easy escapes to nature. Griffith Park, Los Angeles’ urban jewel, also is close by with recreational opportunities ranging from tennis to golf to horseback riding, plus attractions including the Los Angeles Zoo and Autry Museum of the American West.
