This dramatic and widely lauded holiday home in Los Angeles is cited by Architectural Review as: “A building that – what ever it’s other merits -seizes the attention by the way it exemplifies or dramatizes some aspect of modern architecture.”
Designed by pioneering Case Study architect Craig Ellwood, the home’s lofty perch features dramatic city and ocean views suspended above the tree line. Designed in a “T” shaped plan, the layout contains the living and dining areas, divided in half by a central fireplace, providing dramatic vantage points on either side.
The entry, kitchen and dining area are set between the focal point with the two double bedrooms installed at the head of the “T” in a north and south orientation.
There are decks attached on both sides for outdoor living and dining, and exterior spaces below that overlook the magnificent views.
Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities, climate control, private parking. No washer and dryer on site. Bedding and towels refreshed 4X per 30days.
The Crestwood Hills neighborhood is a tony residential enclave above the famed Getty Museum bordering Brentwood and the eastern Santa Monica mountain range and nature parks of Mandeville Canyon.
A private base and great jumping off point to explore this vast city, you are within driving distance to great shops and delicious local eateries (barring the omnipresent traffic), Hollywood, and some of the hippest parts of LA, including the thriving downtown district, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and Venice, iconic sites such as Sunset Blvd, and all of the unique hot spots and recreation in and around LA.
From the sprawling city limits to the coast, from the mountains and beyond, it’s a great central location to explore this vast metropolis.
