The Seyler House is a Spanish-style estate by architect Stiles O. Clements who also designed the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.

The home sits on nearly an acre and a half of land on North Vermont and you can bet on summer evenings you can hear music from the Greek Theatre up the way. A checkerboard floor greets visitors upon entry.

The gated and private grand compound features preserved architectural details with updated systems. The delicately carved wood beams draw the eye upwards.

The downstairs half bath is classic and chic.

The downstairs public rooms are awe-inspiring with preserved original beams and hand painted ceilings.

The huge wraparound kitchen is perfect for preparing large dinner parties and catered events.

The eat-in kitchen has been updated and features green custom cabinetry, a large center island with a sink, a television, stainless steel appliances, opens to its own outdoor dining patio.

The central courtyard has its own outdoor kitchen and multiple dining and entertaining areas.

Colorful and bold designs add personality to the bathrooms.

The large home simply has so many unique touches to discover and to love.

The upstairs master suite has large floor-to-ceiling French doors on either side.

With a Juliet balcony on one side and a lovely full balcony that overlooks the terrace and lushly landscaped hillside.

And I mean lush.


The master bath may cause a drop or two.

And a walk-in closet fit for a star.

A second suite upstairs has a coffered ceiling and windows on three sides plus a newer en suite bath.

The home also boasts a glamorous den and media room, a card room, a guest room, library, and (according to real estate lore) a secret room.

The outdoor living room is a gigantic and fantastic.

A one-of-a-kind, simply gorgeous waterfall feature has a stream cascading down the hill to a fountain and koi pond.

The waterfall feature runs nearly the length of the entire property.

At the top of the gloriously landscaped land you will find an amphitheater. The terraced gardens are truly a sight to see.

And incredible succulents, mature trees, and plenty of alcoves and hidden wonders to discover.

And, of course, at the very top of the property nearly where it becomes Griffith Park, you will find a spectacular lagoon pool with lovely city views.

There will be nothing better than walking a new guest through this enchanting garden at sunset and seeing the sheer pleasure in their eyes as they enjoy this paradise. Stunning and timeless.
