The Bird Streets are known for their stunning views of the city and the Pacific Ocean. The nickname “Bird Streets” comes from the fact that many of the streets in the neighborhood are named after bird species, such as Blue Jay Way, Oriole Drive, Nightingale Drive, and, of course, Swallow Drive. The Bird Streets are part of the larger Hollywood Hills West area and are situated above the Sunset Strip. The location provides residents with a sense of privacy and exclusivity while still being close to the entertainment and cultural amenities of Los Angeles. Over the past century, many Hollywood stars have called the neighborhood home including Frank Sinatra, Ingrid Bergman, Judy Garland, Howard Hughes, and, most recently, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Keanue Reeves, Jodie Foster, Jennifer Aniston, and many more.

9226 Swallow Drive is a timeless example of the enduring appeal of the mid-century modern home. With its sharp lines, mix of materials, walls of windows, and genius indoor/outdoor flow, this is that one-of-a-kind 1960s home that has been updated in all the right places while preserving the period elements that made these homes so ideal in the first place.

This residence has a charming living room with easy outdoor access to the backyard and pool.

And a beautiful family den with an expansive built-in bar, bookshelves, and wine storage all clad in a deep, dark, handsome natural wood.

The perfect space for entertaining, with its hilltop breeze courtesy of a pair of sliders, and views that overlook the pool all the way to the ocean, this den will become the de facto gathering spot for you, your friends and family for years to come.

The formal dining room has backyard views and a gorgeous designer chandelier.

The classic kitchen is charming and spacious. With custom cabinetry, newer stainless steel appliances, a large center island with beautiful brick siding, lovely wood beamed ceiling, and plenty of counter space and storage, it’s a home chef’s dream.

A breakfast room with rows of windows offers a more casual spot for dining.

The sun-drenched primary suite has soaring wood beamed ceilings, built-in library bookshelves, welcoming wood paneled walls, and true jetliner views.

Plus outdoor access to both a private balcony and the glistening pool and backyard.

The primary bathroom is large, with a luxurious soaking tub, a separate shower, and a quintessentially Hollywood vanity table.

The home has three additional guest bedrooms, one of which has outdoor access to the pool.

While all three are nicely sized with great light.

The fourth bedroom is currently used as a convenient work-from-home office and offers built-in shelving and storage space.

The home also has three additional full bathrooms.

9226 Swallow Drive’s backyard is incredibly private with tall hedges and palm trees on one side and a canyon between the property and the next on the other.

The 1960s era pergola provides plenty of shade for al fresco weekend brunches, while the mid-century breeze block fencing allows the cool mountain air to pass through creating a lovely Southern California vibe every day of the year.

9226 Swallow Drive presents an amazing opportunity to own, restore and update one of the very best best mid-century homes in this wonderfully exclusive, architecturally significant Hollywood Hills enclave of The Bird Streets.
