Tucked in the hills near Mullholland and Topanga, this 1924 converted country cottage sits perched on a hill overlooking treetops. The 35 steps up to the front door help keep the house private-- (don't worry-- it's not on stilts-- it sits neatly in the middle of the slope). The feeling is like being far outside of the city (only 30 mins to Hollywood/Bev Hills, 25 to Santa Monica/Venice, 15 to the beach) and with hiking trails that go for miles only steps from the house. However, far from being remote, the house is part of a special nook of windy streets and houses that mark the top of Woodland HIlls near the trailhead of Mulholland Drive.
The ocean is 15 mins from my home, just over the hill through the quaint artist village of Topanga -- equipped with a few restaurants, including the local spot Froggie's Tavern, Post Office, stables for riding lessons and farmer's market on Fridays. If you like even more trails that overlook the ocean-- Topanga has miles of State Park to explore.
If Malibu or Santa Monica are more your speed-- they are only 25 mins from the house, with a gorgeous drive along Pacific Coast Highway.
For high end shopping, Warner Center Topanga/Canoga park is about 3 miles north of my house with EVERYTHING! It's one of the top malls in LA and has excellent selections of top designers, as well as the basics.
I've owned the house for 10 years and enjoy watching the eagles roost outside my dining room and warm summer evenings on the deck. It's a great respite from the traffic and the crowds. If you love nature, but want easy and fast access to the city-- this is the place to be. The 101 freeway is about a mile from my house to the north, with Wholefoods and Trader Joes near the exit. (A must for me!)
