Up, up, and away from the fray – this stunning, two-story traditional has remained in the same family since the original purchase in 1966. Legend has it that Los Feliz Estates developer, Harland Lee and Associates, handpicked this parcel for their very own designer home.






A mature mango tree greets visitors as they enter this regal estate with double-door formal entry, soaring ceilings and striking chandelier. Main floor has a formal parlor & dining room, large kitchen, adjoining family room plus a first floor bedroom suite.







The upper floor features a generous hallway, second family room, Master suite, 3 bedrooms and a full bath.



Breathtaking views stretch all the way from fireworks at Dodger Stadium to Catalina Island, Santa Monica and beyond. Pop out of the pool, sit back in your chaise lounge chair and soak it all in. It’s no wonder the who’s who of Los Angeles luminaries have called The Los Feliz Estates home throughout the years. Now you can too!

Happy Hump-day, y’all!  Here are my favorite new listings from last week!

3973 Glenfeliz Blvd   |   Listed for $899,000   |   4 bed – 4 bath

First, the Charmer.  This seriously cool house in Atwater Village is just oozing character and, well, charm.  I love the windows… Leaded, stained, and vintage.  The main house has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a guest house above the 2 car garage.  The rooms are spacious, the kitchen and baths are updated.  Definitely a great find in Atwater Village.

Second, the Fixer.  And what a fixer it is.  Back when I was rehabbing, these were exactly the properties I loved to find; beat up and untouched.  This puppy is located in Los Feliz with a killer view of the Shakespeare Bridge.  Definite water damage makes it a cash sale plus it’s a probate requiring court confirmation.  Don’t know what that means?  Let us know, we are happy to explain!

4520 Dundee Drive   |   Listed for $3,300,000   |   3 bed – 3 bath

And now, the Stunner.  Oh. My. God.  This house is positively Divine with a capital D.   Located in the Los Feliz Hills, the Jacobson Residence was “the first contemporary structure to receive Landmark Status from the City of Los Angeles”, per the listing remarks.  Designed by Edward Fickett, it is private and perfect.  Utterly perfect!

Mid-Century Monday  |   Los Feliz   |

Well aloha, cool Aloha house!  Ma-halo, Mid-Century Monday!  Man, I’d relish just saying I lived on Aloha street let alone in THIS house.  So centrally located, you could walk to just about everything you need.  But why would you leave?  I love the pop of color on the front door and garage.  Walls of glass, original wood beamed ceilings, and the term “open floor plan” doesn’t begin to describe what’s happening here.  What a beauty… AlohaSo, so good.  Love that the fireplace is flanked by windows.  And, can we talk about that gorgeous fiddle leaf fig?  It probably doesn’t come with, but it’s a stunner.  Aloha_1

And the light fixtures…


And the backyard with pool…  Dramatic, minimal, surprising for a Franklin Hills home.


Interested in seeing Aloha yourself?  Give us a shout!  See the rest of the photos here!

HumpDay Highlights   ~

Oh, Wednesday.  Dear, dear Wednesday.  Middle child of the work week that we lovingly call HumpDay.  In honor of you, here are my three favorite new listings from the last seven days… Enjoy!

3576 Lowry Rd   |   Listed for $1,995,000   |   4 bed / 4 bath

I have a secret love for (some) 70’s architecture and this home is the PERFECT example of why…  The linear siding, oh-my-god that fireplace (!), the minimalism.  It’s all so good! A few pics below with more here.

A 3 bed, 2 bath gorgeous craftsman home circa 1907 plus a 1 bed, 1 bath guest house circa 1926 plus plus a POOL!  Oh man.  Yes, please!  Top of the hill views and thoroughly updated, it’s a rare estate-like property in Elysian Heights.  Lovely!  More pics here!

4614 Finley Ave. #38   |   LOS FELIZ


Wouldn’t it be lovely to wake up every morning under the gaze of the Griffith Observatory?  This light filled, top floor condo does it daily! Stylish and updated, the floor plan is perfectly balanced with an open living space. The living room is sizable with hardwood floors, recessed lighting & a huge glass slider that summons you out onto the balcony. Oh, the views!


The private bedroom suite is over sized with ample room for a king sized bed and two closets, one with Elfa built-ins. The bathroom is also substantial with both a tub & a separate glass enclosed shower. Features like the in-unit washer & dryer (one of the only in the building), central heat & air and surround sound wiring really set this unit apart from the rest!  Plus the building has low HOA dues with a healthy reserve balance.  Right around the corner from some of our favorite restaurants & shops and down the street from Griffith Park trail-heads, you really could ditch the car and stay local!
