Nichols Canyon

Ideal enclave for former resident celebrities.

Welcome to Nichols Canyon

This serene neighborhood just south of Mulholland Drive with its waterfalls, deer, and bucolic hillsides seems worlds away from the Hollywood nightlife just a few miles away. No doubt it was the ideal enclave for former resident celebs like Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner.

Circa 1950, the very year that brought us Bette Davis in All about Eve, and the sizzling Sunset Boulevard with William Holden as an unsuccessful screenwriter and Gloria Swanson playing a faded silent film star. Old Hollywood lingers in this English Country revival. A thorough redoux remastered to its intended grandeur. 

3018 Paulcrest Drive: Holding court above scenic Mulholland Drive Tucked away on a secluded bluff with unencumbered views of the San Fernando Valley, this private mid-century 4 bedroom, 3 bath home sits just above Mulholland Drive—one of the most famous highways in the country.

Nestled a stone’s throw away from Mulholland Drive and butting up against the Briar Summit Open Preserve, 7981 Woodrow Wilson Drive lies in a cosseted enclave of natural beauty and historic architectural significance. Hidden behind gates in the “celebrity-popular section” of Woodrow Wilson Drive.

Insert your text hereOne of the most influential architects of the twentieth century, Richard Neutra helped define modernism not only in Southern California but also around the world. For an architect who is famous for his use of light and the natural beauty of site—hills, canyons, and wooded areas—he embraced technology as a way to achieve a connection.

The Story 2744 Cardwell stands among some of L.A.’s most coveted homes. Suspended high above the city, along the ridges and canyons of the Hollywood Hills, interactions with wildlife are as common as those with celebrity neighbors. Viewing the world from here one could believe all things are possible.

7554 Lolina Lane in the Hollywood Hills. Nichols Canyon, to be more specific. This classic mid-century modern was designed by Edward H. Fickett in 1959. Academy Award winning composer for “When You Wish Upon a Star,” Leigh Harline, once lived in this inspiring home.
