‘Castillo de la Esperanza’ Near Lake Hollywood with Hogwarts Views | 3527 Wonder View Dr.

This romantic 1930s Spanish villa is known as “Castillo de la Esperanza,” or Castle of Hope. The expansive estate is sited on over half an acre in the lush hills above Lake Hollywood. The property offers stunning panoramic views of the Hollywood Hills hillside and an enchanting and rare view in the northern direction of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, alma mater of Harry Potter, of course, and a popular tourist attraction at Universal Studios plus a newish addition to the skyline over the hill.

With complete privacy, the walled and gated compound offers an impressive main residence and several other structures.

Enter the main residence via a captivating courtyard and discover a gorgeous oversized living room with  vaulted ceilings, a fireplace, and library.

The spacious chef’s kitchen provides a wonderful gathering place for friends and family. There’s bar seating as well as a cozy breakfast nook.

A parlor and bar is the perfect spot to unwind and entertain.

The formal dining room is adjacent to the parlor and both open up to one of several patios for al fresco dining. The dining room comfortably seats a party of 12.

The main residence has four classic bedrooms including this beautiful retreat that has its own private patio.

The patio offers a dreamy alcove to enjoy blue skies and hillside views.

The second, third, and fourth bedrooms each feature unique details and treetop views.

Another bedroom has this fantastic patio with wrought iron railings and Spanish tiles.

All of the home’s baths have been smartly updated while maintaining the home’s timeless vintage charm.

Castillo de la Esperanza has been home to an eclectic group of past owners, from cosmetic moguls to rock stars.

Enjoy meandering and lushly landscaped park-like grounds on this 21,000+ sq. ft. lot. The courtyard and pool combine to create the ultimate backyard space for an exclusive soireé.

The backyard also has a brick fireplace, several fountains, walking paths, a vegetable garden, and a rustic poolside pavilion.

This pavilion makes for a great pool house.

With room for a private in-home massage.

And a convenient shower and changing room.

There is also a recently completed ADU, or Additional Dwelling Unit.

This ADU is absolutely the ideal guest house, home studio, office, or gym.

Whatever its next owners decide to do with the space (and it could serve multiple uses – it’s that spacious), it offers the best vantage point for that view of Hogwarts.

The lower level of the ADU is currently being used as a home gym and workout studio.

And there’s also an incredible wine cellar.

Another view of Hogwarts through a lovely stained glass window in the main residence.

Castillo de la Esperanza is a rare offering.
