Hollywood Hills hideaway with breathtaking views asking $1.5M


LA Curbed Greg Harris


If you’re having trouble finishing that novel and MacDowell or Yaddo have yet to extend an invite, this secluded cottage in the Cahuenga Pass might be a good spot to hole up with the ol’ Remington.


Tucked into the hills a little north of Mulholland Drive at the end of a long gated driveway, the two-bedroom, two-bath home has sustained some underwhelming updates since it was built in 1939, but a few cool Streamline Moderne elements, such as curved walls, a kitchen porthole, and steel casement windows, are still in place.


Other features of the 1,254-square-foot residence include beamed ceilings, French doors, and a clawfoot tub in the master bath. But its strongest selling points would have to be its prodigious lot—per the listing, it’s over 17,000 square feet, with two large flat areas—sylvan setting, and spectacular views.


Asking price is $1.495 million, and open house is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday and 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
