Hollywood Foothills

Fave attractions like Runyon Canyon.

Welcome to Hollywood Foothills

Perched above the bustling Sunset Strip is the more serene and celeb-studded Hollywood Foothills. Fave attractions like Runyon Canyon, the Hollywood Bowl, and the scenic Mulholland Drive offer plenty for residents and tourists alike.

Spectacular views coupled with spectacular privacy make this home and area a draw to publicity weary celebs. Alex Trebek, of the quiz show Jeopardy, owned it for a while and Tommy Lee of Mötley Crüe and rapper and actor, Queen Latifah, both have rented it, their neighbors Slash, from Guns and Roses.

Lying within the Sierra Bonita-Hawthorn Craftsman residential Historic District—a sub-area of Spaulding Square—is a 7,000 square foot parcel of land with old trees and a charming 3,000 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 bath Craftsman home built in 1914. It was one of the first neighborhoods in L.A. deemed an HPOZ. (Historic Preservation Overlay Zone.)

1524 N. Sierra Bonita is a house of which people dream. And the area—Sunset Square—is one of the most coveted in L.A. Recently deemed an HPOZ—Historic Preservation Overlay Zone—the integrity of the neighborhood is protected. HPOZ house prices tend to rise faster because the homes are well maintained and attract investment. 

7124 Hollywood Boulevard #2, is the finest in live-work-play all in the heart of Tinseltown. Level I Sleek home office. Large and wide open to creativity work space with polished concrete floors, en suite bathroom, and designer elements. This is your perfect space to crank out projects.

In the company of distinctive homes built a century ago 1621 North Fairfax Avenue reimagines lavish living with a bold modern attitude. 1621 N Fairfax was conceived of every indulgence one would expect from such a well-heeled address.

From the penthouse at 7250 Franklin Avenue–#1201 to be precise–there’s a unique perspective of the celeb-studded Hollywood Foothills with its confluence of urban lights and canyon switchbacks rising up to the celebrated iconic ridge. It’s the kind of experience one gets when you’re above it all.

Built in the heyday of the Bungalow Period of residential architecture, 1624 Gardner is the quintessence of Southern California living. Influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement, bungalows were intrinsically appealing for their simple (by Victorian standards) interiors. Southern California Bungalows were quite large, with rambling floor plans, extensive grounds.

Harmony begins at the street level at 1717 North Ogden Drive. Leafy hedges guard this 1921 Mediterranean giving gentle rise into the romantic private garden. At its entrance, with clay-tiles and gorgeous rustic doors, it’s easy to recall the Golden Age of Hollywood as you cross this threshold.

Originally built in 1992, this 4 bedroom 4 full bath Modern-Contemporary home was thoroughly reimagined by Aaron Neubert, AIA. with connected living spaces and walls of glass opening the interior to the natural environment of Hollywood Hills. The over 4,200 square ft, 3-story architectural home focuses the kitchen, living and dining rooms on the second floor.

1610 North Ogden is situated on an 8,101 sq. ft. lot located just north of Sunset and south of Hollywood, in what is being coined the Sunset Commons. Offered at: $3,600,000 It was designed in 1921—the year of Chaplin’s The Kid and Valentino’s The Sheik-. 1610 North Ogden’s Colonial Revival style, and simple, old-fashioned charm.

Hollywood seems to occupy the lion’s share of LA’s cultural caché, but there’s so much going on West of Hollywood too—like, specifically in West Hollywood, for example. The city is in somewhat of a flux right now, but gorgeous architecture like these Spanish Colonial condos at 1615 N. Laurel Ave.

This classic California Bungalow crowns a grassy knoll north of Hollywood Boulevard in the foothills of Runyon Canyon Park. There is a peacefulness that falls upon the tree-lined street as one approaches 1742 North Gardner. Update: LA Times reports 1742 sold over asking! Originally subdivided by Mr. Hollywood himself, real estate magnate, CE Toberman.

This remarkable home of a Los Angeles visionary has sold only once since it was built almost a century ago. Like the owner of this magnificent structure, C.E. Toberman, 1847 Camino Palmero is an original, and makes its mark in the city’s rich history.

A perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle, but close to Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Ventura Blvd. and the famous Sunset Strip. Exposed beam ceilings establish an inspired woodsy feel, with views for days. The layout is true to California’s Mid-Century modern sensibilities with indoor spaces that extend visually and physically.

Located in the Spaulding Square Historic Preservation Overlay Zone – a neighborhood of modest one-story Period Revival styles houses built between 1916 and 1926 – this charming and tastefully remodeled bungalow is on the Los Angeles Historical Register and protected under the Mills Act Tax Benefit. 

Once every 50 years or so the gates of an old Hollywood Hills Estate open up to the Los Angeles real estate market and the buyers fortunate enough to be in the market at the same time get an opportunity to purchase a landmark. In the Hollywood Foothills above Franklin Avenue.

After their parents passed away in 2013, I was invited to work with the Ghiatis family to help them sell the home they grew up in located in the historic neighborhood of Spaulding Square in Los Angeles. The Ghiatis’ were the second owners of the home.

The home at 1349 North Gardner Avenue was originally built in 1917 by the Stevens & Turner Land Development Company on a two-block stretch between Sunset Boulevard and Fountain Avenue. The neighborhood is located just a few blocks east of historic Spaulding Square and is dominated by apartment buildings and the home of Los Angele.
