A cozy den offers a relaxing spot to unwind with the family after a long day at work. Notice the home’s many fantastic built-ins, virtually untouched since the 1960s but timeless and perfect for bibliophiles.

In fact, the home has its very own library.

The home’s unique and exceptional layout is smart. The master bedroom and the three other bedrooms are essentially on opposite wings of the home.

This creates a tantalizing feeling of privacy and the opportunity for solitude and seclusion when necessary. All four of the bedrooms in the main house have outdoor access to private patios.

The backyard and pool offer a wonderful retreat from city life. There’s plenty of room for al fresco dining and lounging on the brick deck.

The backyard also has a large grassy area, mature trees, and exquisite landscaping.

The guest house is perfect for overnight visitors or could be easily transformed into the ultimate pool house and game room. The guest house has hardwood floors, French-style sliders, built-in bookshelves, and a full bath.

One of the premier homes of the Bird Streets, 1518 Blue Jay Way is sure to inspire and comfort its next owners for many years to come. It’s a warm, wonderful, and welcoming Traditional-style estate in one of Los Angeles’s most exclusive neighborhoods.
