Originally built in 1926, this Spanish-style Hollywood Hills compound-like property is from the famed Hollywoodland era. It is located across a canyon from what is now the Hollywood sign. The talented sellers are author/historian/journalist Victoria Vantoch and actor/producer/writer Misha Collins.
While the outside architecture is predominantly Spanish with a classic red-tile roof, the unique Moorish details add a worldly ambiance. The interior continues a Moorish vibe with details throughout, including arched windows, wrought-iron railings, French doors, and tiled stairs. High, wood-beam ceilings grace much of the three-story main house’s upper levels.
The main-level living room opens to the dining room and upgraded kitchen with large eat-in island. Downstairs is the family room, two bedrooms, meditation room, bathroom, and en-suite bedroom as well. Gas fireplaces are in the living and family rooms.
On the top level, the primary suite has its own balcony and separate room, now in use as an office. The primary bathroom, clad in all rough-hewn cedar, has a large freestanding soaking tub, separate steam shower, double vanity, toilet room, and ample closets.
Off the kitchen is a butler’s pantry, laundry room and ¾ bathroom. In the laundry room is a separate pseudo butler’s pantry, and ¾ bathroom. The spacious kitchen has a built-in lounge area, reclaimed-wood ceiling, and chef-quality stainless-steel appliances. The large, open dining area has French doors that open to a large covered balcony.
On the lower level is a one-bedroom guest efficiency with kitchenette and ¾ bathroom. Surrounding hedges, mostly drought-tolerant landscaping, and a private gate ensure a peaceful ambiance. An enchanting, secluded writer’s cabin among the vegetation provides a quiet retreat.
Near the relaxing pool with a motorized, retractable cover is a hot tub, cabana with kitchen, built-in grill, half bathroom, outdoor shower, and lower-level bedroom. A private, freestanding gas fireplace is in the courtyard off the guest efficiency, and a gas fire pit is in the cabana by the pool.
Grow your own produce in the raised-beds vegetable garden. A kids’ play area has a built-in climbing rope-net, slide, sandbox, and grass yard. The attached garage can accommodate one large or two small cars. A security system protects the property.
