The front door opens into a foyer that showcases the first wrought-iron staircase. With a traditional-style tiled floor, the entryway sets the tone for the aesthetic of the home. The ground floor includes two dining rooms, a kitchen, a formal living room, an office, and a large family room. High ceilings add to the light, bright feel of the hilltop home. The goal was to make the home feel as airy as the plethora of outside spaces.
The kitchen leads directly to the family room. Although most of the home has significant separation between spaces, this area utilizes a more open floor plan. The laid-back nature of this area is intended for hosting. This communal area also connects to one of the many terraces on the property.
A true chef’s kitchen, the cooking space is complete with high-end appliances. The white marble island matches the countertops and backsplash. Gold accents complete this luxurious (yet livable) space.
Setting the tone for the rest of the eclectic nooks in the home, the formal dining room has beautiful tropical wallpaper and classic crown molding. The dark wood flooring is typical of old Hollywood homes, adding another nod to the past.
The formal dining room opens up to the largest terrace. This space is complete with a stone fountain and a balustrade railing. The outdoor dining space has a panoramic view of the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Observatory, and several other iconic LA landmarks.
The three bedrooms are located upstairs. Each room has a connected balcony with sweeping views. The primary bedroom includes two walk-in closets and a screened-in patio. Vintage botanical wallpaper adds to the charm of the comfortable master sleeping space.
There is a bright en-suite bathroom connected to the largest bedroom. The vintage wallpaper trend continues in this luxury pampering space. The black marble shower and countertops provide a visual contrast to the light-filled space.
Beyond the main two levels, the home boasts a converted wine cellar with a separate entrance. There is also an additional living space on the third level. This property has been designed for modern California living. Listed for $4,250,000, this home is blocks from the Silverlake portion of Sunset Boulevard.
