Cahuenga Pass Artists' Retreat (Hollywood Hills West)

A charming, indoor/outdoor California Modernist Bungalow (single family home) nestled the Cahuenga Pass enclave of Hollywood Hills West neighborhood.

This unique property is a comfortable, quiet and private artist/industry/scholar retreat situated on a flat pad above Woodrow Wilson Drive. The home is a glass house, with windows and French one-lite doors on all sides of the living space. From each room there is a serene vantage point looking out onto three separate patio settings affording unique, secluded, and beautiful views of the neighborhood and hills. In the backyard, there are full sky views that meet a lush backyard, water flowing from a Mexican-style backyard fountain, and singing chimes that provide a tranquil setting-one that is perfect for a creative individual or couple or young family. The open space and fully-fenced yard is especially accommodating for dog and cat owners. The home has five rooms, which include: 1. A large and open living room with a center fireplace; 2. A newly renovated kitchen with new cabinets, Whirlpool appliances, and Kohler apron vault sink and fixtures; 3. A newly renovated bathroom designed with travertine marble, Decolav green onyx sink, Kohler performance shower and fixtures, and Rennai tankless water heater; 4. Two bedrooms (one can alternate as a study, TV viewing room, sitting room, child's room, etc.). There is an outdoor laundry area with Amana front-loading washer and dryer. Located just a few blocks away from the 101 freeway, this blissful hideaway boasts easy access to Universal Studios and City Walk. It is a short drive, walk, or bike ride to the John Anson Ford Theatre, Hollywood & Highland, the Hollywood Bowl, and a beautiful drive through the scenic and historic Hollywood Hills leading to the famous Sunset Strip, Beverly Hills, Getty Museum, Skirball Cultural Center, and UCLA, as well as many world-class restaurants. For industry professionals, this peaceful haven is an ideal hub for making meetings as the property is centrally located near all the major studios, and within a short driving or biking distance to shopping malls, local restaurants, and Metro public transportation. For those who work at home, the indoor/outdoor space is an especially appealing aesthetic that is calming, inspirational and private! This is a world-class address that is uniquely 'LA', nestled in the Hollywood Hills, near Studio City, and located conveniently between both the Westside and the Valley.
