A Magical Setting with Majestic Views in Hollywood Heights

A Magical Setting with Majestic Views in Hollywood Heights

A couple years ago I blogged about the Hollywood High Tower, a campanile style elevator tower that services a small community of homes tucked into the hillside at the end of a cul-de-sac in the Hollywood Heights neighborhood of the hills. And now, with this listing that just came on the market, here is your chance to experience living in a setting that is unlike any other. This little enclave, developed during Hollywood’s golden age, possesses a magical quality to it thanks to the architecture of the homes, the setting, the seclusion, the views and the 100’ tower at its center.

 In it’s current state, the home itself is not going to take anyone’s breath away. But it has great bones and it comes with views that will certainly do the job of making you gasp. So bring your tool belt and let your imagination take over, because t

In it’s current state, the home itself is not going to take anyone’s breath away. But it has great bones and it comes with views that will certainly do the job of making you gasp. So bring your tool belt and let your imagination take over, because this is truly a diamond in the rough. When you’re done, your guests will covet your little slice of Hollywood heaven. You might celebrate with an outdoor screening of The Long Goodbye, which was filmed in one of the homes next to the tower!

 Here, in the living room, the home currently features a little a theater. But the real show is out the windows. Nearly every room in the house enjoys spectacular views.

What I really love about this pocket of the hills is the charm of the homes that dot the hillside. There are many areas in the hills that are filled with oversized, late 20th century McMansions that bear no soul whatsoever. This area, on the other hand, is reminiscent of a Mediterranean village.

 Looking toward downtown, the views seem to go on forever.

 And if you like going to concerts at the Hollywood Bowl (of course you do, who doesn’t?) you’ll never have to deal with the crazy parking situation again because it’s just a short walk away.

 The other way of reaching homes in this hillside is via stairs – another romantic legacy of LA’s early years.

 Here's a cool photo showing this this home and the tower - the only two structures occupying the hillside. This home actually predates the tower.

 Another interesting newspaper item from early days of the tower!
