Historic Whitley Heights Mediterranean with 25 Ft. Leaded Glass Windows & a Guest House

This stunning three bedroom home in Whitley Heights was built in 1922, distinguishing it as one of the very first homes in this Hollywood Hills neighborhood.

The property is perched on a sweeping corner lot that has views of Hollywood Heights all the way to the Pacific.

The home is brimming with wonderful 1920s and Mediterranean design flourishes including elaborate plaster work, terra cotta colored tile roof, and this impressive arched entryway that is sure to make an impactful impression for visitors.

But immediately upon entry your guests jaws may drop when they encounter the one-of-a-kind centerpiece of the historic home: twenty-five foot leaded glass picture windows that provide plenty of light to the gorgeous living spaces.

The extraordinarily massive windows are original to the home’s 1922 architecture. The residence was designed by architect Arthur Barnes. Barnes designed many of Whitley Heights’s most iconic homes.

The home has many classic design details including built-in bookshelves, cozy nooks, passage ways, hardwood and tile floors, two fireplaces, wrought-iron railings, crown moldings, and French doors.

The formal dining room has wonderful hillside views and glass doors that open to a lengthy balcony.

The cook’s kitchen has a vintage O’Keefe & Merritt stove, a large center island, both open and closed shelving, and a “kitchen pot rack chandelier.”

Nearly every room of the house enjoys breathtaking views of the hillside.

The private and peaceful master bedroom has its own fireplace.

A luxuriously spacious en suite bath.

And, last but not least, the master suite also contains an attached office/library/artist’s suite. The home includes two other bedrooms and two more baths.

Outdoor spaces include an outdoor spa and private sitting areas. Additional features of  6662 Whitley Terrace include gated entry, direct access from garage, custom furniture, and a laundry room,

The home’s guest house has been nicknamed “Woodstock.”

Woodstock was envisioned as a cabin in the woods treehouse-style retreat.

It’s an inspiring spot for writing, reading, and other artistic pursuits. There’s something very Henry David Thoreau’s Walden about the space. The guest quarters also includes a kitchenette.

Its silent screen era connections are many, but it was most notably once home to Chester Morris, who played leading man opposite such stars as Jean Harlow and Norma Shearer, and was one of the first actors to be nominated for an Academy Award. The property evokes Old Hollywood Glamour while remaining timeless. 6662 Whitley Terrace is a rare find and an absolute delight.
