Location: Los Angeles, California
Millions of tourists descend upon L.A. every year, many no doubt hoping to catch a glimpse of the glittering Hollywood sign way up in the hills. But at this lovely 1957 home on a semi-private road, you’d get a fantastic view of the landmark right in your backyard.
The house itself is a handsome, compact 1,270 square feet sitting behind a gated entry. The three-bedroom post-and-beam has been restored to dazzling effect, with glass walls wrapping around the main level, which contains the open living and dining areas, two airy en-suite bedrooms, the kitchen, and a small office. Another en-suite guest bedroom is on a lower level. Though the lot is just 0.21 acres, it’s relatively flat and comes complete with a deck and pool.
One last tidbit: the house may look familiar to fans of the late-aughts MTV reality show, “The Hills,” which followed the lives of a circle of well-off young things in L.A. This is the house supposedly rented by series “villain” Spencer Pratt at one point, so at least he (or the producers) seem to have good taste.
