This Craftsman Traditional home was built over 100 years ago, making it one of the original homes of the Hollywood Hills. The 5 bedroom home has recently undergone a painstaking, no expense spared restoration and expansion that maintains the original character and details of the early twentieth century while incorporating all the necessary and needed modern amenities of the 21st.

This Hollywood Hills compound offers nearly a quarter acre lot completely wrapped in mature hedges for ultimate privacy, lush landscaping, rolling lawns, a vegetable garden, and multiple areas to relax and entertain including a sparkling pool.

The main level features a grand scale living room with a fireplace and pocket doors that can close the room off from the entry foyer and stairwell and the dining room.

The formal dining room has lovely built-ins evocative of the era, perfect for fine china storage or to display cherished art objects or as a bar.

The graceful open plan kitchen has been completely renovated and features stainless steel appliances, subway tile backsplash, two sinks, and custom cabinetry.

The top floor has three guest bedrooms and two baths.

The guest bedrooms are spacious and some include private patios and built-in bookshelves.

The primary suite features an office with walnut bookcases, walnut floors, a wood beamed ceiling, and direct access to the pool and backyard.
