Featured home by Andrew Sanchez
One of my favorite things about this gorgeous Hollywood Spanish is it sits in a perfect location. Perched JUST up the hill above the Sunset Strip, high enough to give you the privacy that comes with living in the hills along with gorgeous views, but still close enough for an easy walk down to all the shops, restaurants, Soulcycle, Equinox…all the good stuff! Then there’s the classic Hollywood history, making things even more interesting: this home was smack dab in the middle of the burgeoning LA comedy scene in the 70’s and 80’s….tons of comedians partied and made their home here during the glory days of the Comedy Store on the Sunset Strip — how cool is that!?
And then ultimately: it’s just a stunning jaw-dropping home. Check it out!
This place has what you want from a 1925 character Spanish: TONS of charm. You walk in and there’s coved ceilings, arched doorways, veranda-style windows…and to top it off — sweeping views and plenty of natural light. The living room is large and features a beautiful fireplace and you’re surrounded by windows everywhere, giving way to a fantastic balcony that looks down onto the strip.
Follow the dark hardwood floors through sweeping archways that lead to the dining area (also with views) and then through to the kitchen.
Kitchen is beautiful, bright and features plenty of cabinetry, a large center island, stainless steel Viking appliances, a farm sink and gorgeous marble countertops. There’s also double doors that lead out to an adorable seating area in case you want your breakfast al fresco.
The master bedroom includes a large ensuite bath and spacious walk-in closet. Throughout the home you’ll find multiple terraces: all offer views and perfect for sunbathing, reading…whatever your heart desires. On the lower level you’ll find a chic loft with soaring ceilings, exposed brick and a curved colonnade of original windows. This loft space is seriously adorable, dripping in charm, and would make a perfect media room, gym, recording studio, office…so many possibilities. Aside from the many terraces you can also take the steps downstairs and there’s a beautiful green yard where even more possibilities await.
Home sweet home? I’d say so!
