Spanish Colonial Casa Canem by Architect Carl Lindbom in Hollywoodland

Built by famed architect Carl Lindbom in 1927, “Casa Canem” is a world-class Spanish Colonial estate on nearly half an acre in Hollywoodland with stunning up-close views of the iconic Hollywood sign, impeccable style, and fortress-like grounds.

Lindbom is also the architect of the 1930s masterpiece Casa Romantica in San Clemente, a bluff-side love affair of a house that combines the ornamental wrought-iron scrolls of the Mediterranean  with the terra-cotta spirit of the stuccoed hacienda and the nearby Casa Pacifica, otherwise known as the “Western White House.” All of these homes share many similarities.

At Casa Canem you will find a romantic and a fully realized home with indoor and outdoor spaces that provide total privacy.

Inside, there’s a gorgeous living room with a unique art deco fireplace, tall wood beamed ceilings,  and an arched picture window that captures views of the grounds of the estate.

Plus a distinctive lounging nook that’s in a class all its own and sure to become a favorite space to entertain guests.

The chic and welcoming interior has been flawlessly restored under the watchful eye of a well-known designer who also happens to be the home’s current owner.

Spanish-style archways and gorgeous Spanish tiles can be found throughout the home.

The spacious formal dining room leads to the patio, flat and grassy yard, and the luxurious pool.

A butler’s pantry opens to the luxurious and dreamy gourmet kitchen. The kitchen features a black ceiling with recessed lighting and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.


The breakfast nook is a great spot to admire the views of the Hollywood sign as you enjoy your morning coffee. It also includes easy outdoor access to a patio.

The lavish master suite is spacious and features hardwood floors, sitting areas, stylish lighting fixtures, and amazing views.

The magazine-worthy master bath is simply exquisite.

The home provides three more en suite bedrooms, each with their own charming quirks and design elements.

The magical outdoor spaces include a covered terrace adjacent to the pool and the rolling lawn that is the perfect spot for al fresco dining with friends and family throughout the year.

The property also provides plenty of spaces to explore and relax on its gated half acre.

The incredible craftsmanship, wonderful outdoor spaces, and singular Hollywood sign views make this Hollywoodland home stand apart from all the others in the coveted hillside neighborhood.
