Description

"FIXER ALERT" Rare, secluded refuge perched high in the Hollywood Hills offering a unique opportunity to conceive your greatest dream and elevate it into reality. This two-bedroom, one bathroom cottage designed in 1946 by Lyle R. Wheeler, five-time Oscar winner for Art Direction, was filled with laughter and music. It is enviably situated on a two-pad property in the iconic Laurel Canyon neighborhood. Filled with potential - renovate the existing mid-century structure and build your dream home behind? Imagine an art studio, meditation maze, granny flat, or writer's atelier? Here, humor was penned for television that led generations to laugh at grape stomping, chocolates run amok on a wayward conveyor belt, and so much more. Mirth, and most likely some mayhem, took place in and around the pool with Richard Crenna, Dick Martin, and Nancy Kulp. From this boundless viewpoint, you are embraced by storied Mulholland Drive and the access provided by Laurel Canyon Boulevard. The adjacent woodsy hill offers views of deer families grazing in a small open meadow, solitude not common to Los Angeles. The sky above is the only canopy over this tranquil setting where owls, moon and stars inspire by night, and majestic hawks and wild birds dip and soar by day. It is impossible to overstate the endless possibilities provided by this serene spot. From where songwriter Arthur Hamilton and pianist, conductor and composer Andre Previn KBE tickled the ivories, you can quickly roll south down Laurel Canyon to iconic Love Street and Canyon County Store, then on to the Sunset Strip for Hollywood studios, restaurants, and nightlife - Soho House, Whiskey A Go Go, The Comedy Store and Chateau Marmont are among many of the hip, hot spots. Go north and be delivered into Studio City, Ventura Blvd., studios, markets, and restaurants. Feel the creative spirit from the past that still embeds the soil from writers, musicians, composers, and performers who shared their craft. This magical setting of a Hollywood Hills retreat allows a peaceful escape from city life...or quick access to it. (Owner occupied, do not walk the property without an appointment and an agent.)
