Tucked away and surrounded by nature on a quiet, secluded section in the lower foothills of Laurel Canyon, this updated 1925 Spanish Colonial gem is a little castle in the sky. Sited securely behind granite walls – originally mined onsite in the early 1900’s, when the street was a working granite quarry – a wrought-iron gate leads up saltillo tiled stairs to an arched entryway. The living area marries period detail with an open living floor plan. French doors open onto a romantic balcony with a hillside and tree top view. Step up to the spacious dining room that flows into the large kitchen with Viking refrigerator and Wolf range. Upstairs, the spacious, light-filled master suite offers a small sitting room, an en-suite travertine-clad bathroom with deep soaking tub, and inspiring views from every window. The charming second bedroom with en-suite Jacuzzi/shower bath is perfect for guests or children. A spacious terraced, back patio features an outdoor fireplace, a majestic date palm and citrus trees, and breathtaking views offer serene privacy within a 2-minute drive to the Sunset Strip at any time of day. Convenient location is central to most of LA and allows you to bypass rush hour canyon traffic. Walk to Trader Joe’s or dinner at Pace, or spend your weekend soaking in the tranquil atmosphere. This property has a very special, welcoming energy.
