This charming Spanish-style home features a striking view of Hollywood as it sits tucked up in the Hollywood Hills, hidden away in historic Whitley Heights. The home belonged to 1920’s move star Marie Dressler at one time, making it a classic piece of Hollywood architecture. Historic Whitley Heights is full of charming view homes and varied architectural styles from this sleek traditional to this charming cottage, and was one of Hollywood’s first celebrity neighborhoods.
The Spanish Revival home was built in 1926, and offers elegant domed ceilings, scalloped entryways and arched windows that add a level of detail to the home.
The mixture of modern and traditional elements really add a richness to the home. The kitchen offers Spanish tile floors while the rest of the home is covered in right hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen is completed with an eat-in breakfast room and additional formal dining room for entertaining. There is also a large cedar lined closet that can be accessed off the kitchen.
All three of the home’s bedrooms are generously sized and are completed by a private bathroom with vintage styling and tile work. Additionally, two of the bedrooms also feature a built-in make up desk.
The property is completed with a large bonus room on the lower level of the home that could be used as a media or screening room, gym, large home office or game room. There is also a small side room that could be converted into a wine cellar.
As an additional bonus, the home comes with a 2 car garage, laundry room, utility room and a total of 8 Juliette balconies which flank the West wall overlooking the Hollywood Bowl area.
