Breathtaking New House In The Hollywood Dells, $5.2M


The Hollywood Dells has long been prized for its cozy, small town feel, much like neighboring Whitley Heights (from which it was severed when the 101 went through) with curving, quiet streets, 1920s Spanish Revival homes and lovely vistas. It’s been touted as a “family-friendly” neighborhood, and regardless of what that means these days, this sleek and spectacular new house ticks a lot of boxes.

All four levels are connected by a grand staircase and an elevator, with the main level set above the 3-car garage and services. The foyer is dominated by a temperature-controlled wine wall and upstairs on the third level, the grand living/dining/kitchen space unfolds seamlessly with walls of glass that disappear, joining indoors and outdoors with a cliff-hanging pool and outdoor kitchen.

What We Love: It’s a more compact version of the spec Modernist mega-mansions going up around town, but with the same outstanding construction values and finishes, the same amenities, and designed both for entertaining and privacy.

The second level, below, sets itself apart with a pair of bedroom suites (kids/ guests/in-laws?) a media room opening to a terrace, and a small auxiliary kitchen.

Set even further apart, the master suite occupies the entire top floor with a pair of spa baths and dressing rooms. And unbelievable views.
