Exterior of original Hollywoodland home with English Tudor style roof and exterior

This storybook English Tudor home in Beachwood Canyon is a Hollywoodland original featuring all the vintage style of that great era. Only two owners have occupied the home since it was built in 1924. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom, 1,733-square-foot home is listed at $1,500,000 by Rose Ware in our Beverly Hills office.

The house at 2738 Woodshire Drive was created by famous developer/architect L. Milton “Bud” Wolf, who built the historic Wolf’s Lair, a Norman castle overlooking the Hollywood Reservoir. The castle was later the home of musician Moby.

Rose, who has lived in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood for over 25 years, says, “Beachwood Canyon is like Mayberry. I go down to the market or café and always run into one of my neighbors or friends. I half expect to see Floyd the barber. In a tech-filled world of emails and text messages, it’s refreshing to have a little patch of calm in the city. That’s why it’s easy for me to sell clients on the benefits of hillside living.”

One of Hollywoodland’s first homes

The upper portion of Beachwood Canyon is the Hollywoodland community that was advertised in the 1920s adjacent the original of what is now known as the Hollywood Sign.

Notable Beachwood Canyon residents, past and present, includes actors Charlie Chaplin, Humphrey Bogart, Ned Beatty, Minnie Driver, and Jack Black; author Aldous Huxley; and musicians Axl Rose and Harry Styles.

The living room is dominated by an ornate molded fireplace. Classic features include high, wood-beamed ceilings, tall French windows, original natural-wood doors with vintage metal fixtures, and narrow-plank wood floors.

The formal dining room opens to a spacious kitchen with a pantry and breakfast area.
