Best of Luck to you
When looking for a specific need in a home, you might fare out best in focusing in an area where like minded people, such as yourself, have been there and done it. For example, No Hollywood, Studio City, Valley Villge, Toluca Lake, Burbank are locations near the studios where musicians/artists have preceded you and had the same needs, ergo - have built or customized their homes/properties to fit their needs, which matches your exact objective.
tell me the zip code your looking in or some streeets to focu in on.....

In your price range you have a lot of options. If a two car garage is an option with guest house that might open some things up for you because 3 car garages are not that common. I actually have a listing coming up that is in Studio City that might fit the bill and won't be completed until early 2009 and will be below 1.5. If you will consider the other side of the hill, West LA you will have options too. Shoot me an email when you have a chance so I can explore what's out there and perhaps get a feel for style and areas. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. You don't need a mini-mansion to get what your looking for. Even if you want to drive around just to get your toes wet, I'd love to help.
