    2209 Canyon Drive
    Los Angeles, CA 90068


    Looking for a private compound in the Bronson Canyon area?  Try this one on for size.  Don't let busy Canyon Drive fool you, this estate is located up a long, inconspicuous, private driveway far from the main thoroughfare.

    The main house (approximately 4,100 square feet) includes four bedrooms, four and a half baths,  and . . .

    This fantastic, open, cook's kitchen is complete with high-end appliances and a pantry for extra storage.

    This breakfast area shares a two sided fireplace with the dining room (shown below).

    This cozy living room features high, beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and a fireplace.

    The master bedroom suite opens through French doors to the deck overlooking much of the grounds.

    Just like all the rooms in this house, the master bath is also "bathed" in sunlight.

    Here is the lower maid's quarters, also in the main house.

    AND THEN. . . there are three other detached houses. . .

    The two bedroom, one bath, Carriage House is the first stop along the long, private drive.

    Here's the studio/office "house."

    And don't forget the pool house with a loft bedroom.

    This is an incredible estate.  You must see it in person to really appreciate the nicely landscaped, private, meandering outdoor space as well as the spacious, yet homey, interiors.

    This three bed, three bath Mid-Century was listed, yesterday, in the Hollywood Hills West area.  Let's take a look inside.

    The kitchen is pretty sharp, don't you think?

    The great room, here, features hardwood floors, a gas fire place, beamed ceilings, and incredible walls of glass.

    The master suite is also roomy and framed by large windows.  It's complete with a clean, spacious master bath.

    Downstairs, there is a full guest suite, with a private entrance, that includes a fireplace and a fun shelving unit.  This particular space is versatile enough to use as a den, media room or as the third bedroom.

    The guest bathroom includes a steam shower.

    Speaking of a fantastic Mid-Century home, here's a fun idea for a Mid-Century house warming gift:

    These are vintage linen cocktail napkins from the 1960's.  Each one depicts a cocktail recipe.  These would look fantastic, in frames, hung in a kitchen or a bar area!

    You may find them for sale on Etsy in this shop.

    6415 Rodgerton Drive
    Los Angeles, CA 90068


    Just below the Hollywood sign, you’ll find this sleek, multi-level, 4 bed, 3.5 bath contemporary home.  It is open and airy with huge walls of glass, throughout, offering lots of spectacular, tree-top views of the city lights and canyon.

    It’s kind of like living in a gallery.  The pristine, white walls, with soaring ceilings and recessed lighting, are perfect for display of big, boldly colored works of art.  These large-scale paintings, by artist Kim West, may fit nicely in this home.  What do you think?

    The stainless kitchen, here, offers a lot of storage and counter space.  The L-shaped window is pretty cool too.

    This bathroom, accented with a skylight, features a dual-sink vanity with ample storage.

    The landscaped outdoor living space includes this cool, private, sunken spa.
