Paul Reuben’s, AKA Pee-wee Herman, Mid-Century Home Hits the Market | 5835 Green Oak Dr.

On the market for the first time in over forty years in Los Feliz’s stunning and exclusive neighborhood of Los Feliz Oaks, the late and great Paul Reuben’s, also often known as his alter ego Pee-wee Herman, mid-century modern home is absolutely gorgeous, and like Pee-wee himself, refreshingly one-of-a-kind. A true original, for a true original, in perfect original condition.

5835 Green Oak Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90068

$4,995,000 | 3 Bedrooms | 2.5 Bathrooms | 2,921 Sq. Ft. | $1,710 per Sq. Ft. | 1.44 Acres | Built in 1957

Set on nearly an acre and a half, this gorgeous property has jaw-dropping 360 degree views of Los Angeles, including the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Park Observatory, plus a pool and a truly unique enclosed aviary/cat patio.

Located at the end of a private road in The Oaks neighborhood, this is an architecturally significant estate once home to beloved actor, the legendary Paul Reubens, and is an iconic piece of Hollywood history with unparalleled hilltop views of this lush and lovely east side canyon community.

Step inside and find an enchanting and classic one-story mid-century ranch-style home.

The living room has walls of windows and sliding doors that open to the great entertainer’s patio with the glistening and inviting pool and spa.

The living room has a stone fireplace, tiled floors, and an amazing wood beamed ceiling evocative of John Lautner’s masterpiece, the Sheats–Goldstein Residence.

When the sun goes down, the snazzy den will become your favorite place to move the afterparty.

The den has vintage wallpaper, its own stone fireplace, and built-in bookshelves.

Plus a built-in circular wet bar. It’s the perfect spot to unwind with a good book solo or host friends and family for a talkative good time late into the evening.

The vintage chic kitchen has 1950s period appropriate appliances.

A charming built-in breakfast nook has great storage plus there’s a convenient adjacent pantry and laundry room.

The home’s powder room is timeless with lovely wood accents and a turquoise pedestal sink.

They simply don’t make primary suites like this anymore.

The primary has plenty of closet space and astonishing floor-to-ceiling views of the canyon.

A dressing area and sitting room are perfect just as they are, but could also make a great office space.

The en suite bathroom has an amazing sunken tub, and, yes, a landline.

The bathroom opens up to the aforementioned one-of-a-kind enclosed aviary or “cat patio,” where Paul’s cats all enjoyed their time.

Two guest bedrooms each have treetop views and built-in workspaces and storage.

They share a wonderful Jack-and-Jill bathroom.


This visually appealing bath has dual sinks, vintage wallpaper, medicine cabinets galore, and more.

The immense lot offers incredible park-like grounds and, of course, this great treetop swimming pool and spa.

Myriad entertaining and lounging spaces surround the property, including this covered dining area.

There are walking trails and abundant wildlife.

All on over an acre of land which offers incredible privacy, the best panoramic views, and the chance to see P-22’s successor.

A home like this is incredibly rare, completely idiosyncratic, and in a class all by itself: just like Paul Reubens himself.

I would love to give you a private tour of 5835 Green Oak Drive in the Los Feliz Oaks. Call me today at (323) 697-3040 or email me at jacqueline.tager@sothebyshomes.com.
