Guest suite one upstairs features a queen-sized bed with a custom headboard upholstered in chocolate silk. Flat screen Sony 55″ tv with DirecTV and Smart TV interactivity. An additional fun guest suite features: a Juliet balcony overlooking the home’s motor court and the mountains beyond.
As classically Spanish as the rest of the house guest suite 2 offers a completely different look: industrially chic with polished concrete floors a wet bar and its own separate entrance to a private patio complete with fountain (this area was featured as the cover of a special section in Harper’s Bazaar Interiors magazine featuring the house). A massive metal desk is the centerpiece of the room. It was actually rescued from the garage and refinished. Guests are welcome to use the I-Mac in this room which has two massive monitors. Rounding out this room are a flat screen 50″ “classic” old-timey Plasma TV left by the former owner so it has a very sexy pedigree. A brand new queen sized bed with leather style headboard rounds out the room.
A full guest bathroom with a bathtub is located on the second floor between the guest room and the office. Across from the bathroom is a closet for the guest room.
The pool at this estate is spectacular. If you use a popular search engine that begins with a g and type in “CJ You fell in the pool there” you’ll see Emmy Award winner Alison Janney in a memorable scene shot at the house (for West Wing fans–this was CJ Craig’s house when she lived in LA). This pool is Old Hollywood…with a true deep end and two built in seats with a perfect view of the outdoor fireplace.
On a terrace below is a paddle tennis court. This game follows the same rules as regular tennis but using hard paddles. (Of course we have pool floats and tennis paddles/balls that we welcome you to use during your stay).
For the BBQ enthusiast your dreams have been answered. The custom Viking Professional Outdoor Kitchen truly has no equal. It has everything: a state-of-the-art 60″ gear complete with Tru-Sear grill-ology a custom smoker. To keep things nice and toasty a warming tray is just under the grill. The grilling area shares its counter space above with two burners perfect for simmering some BBQ sauce on the side or steaming that corn. Down below is a fridge perfectly located for the prime cuts you’ve been marinating all day. Pull a shelf and slide it right out.
Across from the grill zone is a gigantic island that does double duty as a fantastic buffet for outdoor dining. Also in this area are plenty of storage cabinets stocked with everything you need to flip those burgers and maybe mix a cocktail or two. An additional fridge is on this island–this one has slide-out drawers we use for beverages an ice machine and a sink with disposal are also on this island. Bar seating surrounds one corner of the island. It’s the perfect combo platter sit at the bar watch your better half grilling up a nice juicy steak and look across the pool and up to one of Los Angeles ‘most incredible mountain views.
Completing the outdoor pool area is the “boat house.” Picture this: it’s just like a cabin in a ship—starting with the fact that the whole room is finished in teak. Walls ceilings you name it. Looking out over the pool is a gigantic porthole window. Underneath that is a twin sized elevated bunk. Built-in storage is everywhere. A flat screen tv is positioned at your feet; a desk folds down by your head. A teak door of course with a porthole enters a bath with a rain head shower.
Although you will be shocked by how quiet this neighborhood is you’re only a short drive to Hollywood West Hollywood Beverly Hills–Laurel Canyon is just a mile away to the west; Downtown Hollywood–Dolby Theatre you can easily walk down the hill (and Uber back up) you’re minutes away (about two) from the legendary Sunset Strip.
What makes this compound especially unique is its double-street-to-street lot AND that’s it’s nestled in an area of the city that will never be developed as it is a “Canyonette” adjacent to Runyon Canyon Park and the Wattles Garden Park.
