O'Leary's Cabin in Griffith Park with pool

  • 1 bedroom
  • 1 bathroom


This charming one bedroom, detached house is the original 1940s stableman’s quarters for the Bette Davis estate Riverbottom. The cabin is fresh, vibrant and newly refurbished while still maintaining some of its unique, original features. The cool, open LIVING ROOM and KITCHEN has high ceilings, exposed beams, white wood floors and original art on the walls. The seating area in front of the old cast iron stove has the sofa, cushioned wing chair, and black rocking chair; ideal for playing parlor games or watching the cable TV (with the movie package). The front door and main windows face the garden, trees and hammock, and the stable block. The back windows look out over the neighboring horse paddocks and in the far distance, the LA Equestrian Center and the setting sun beyond that. The BEDROOM is small, simple, with a Custom Comfort (very comfortable) queen sized bed. There’s built-in closet/storage area. A small fold out couch at the foot of the bed (that can be used as a second bed). The BATHROOM has a groovy tiled shower and looks out through arched windows toward the pool. Named after Humphrey Bogart’s character Michael O’Leary, the stableman in Davis’ 1939 film Dark Victory; the cabin enjoys a 32” flat screen tv with both digital cable and Apple TV and Netfix, there’s wifi throughout the estate. Heating and air-conditioning are in the wall unit in the living room; the laundry (clothes washer and drier) in the adjoining utility room. We have keyless entry and the grounds are large enough that the house feels very private. With the added bonus that we are right there to answer questions or fix anything that may arise. We share the estate with other houses that are available for let Rivergate House Dillard’s Pool House O’Leary’s Cabin Rivergate is a private, historic equestrian ESTATE. It enjoys massive organic gardens, almost half acre of drought tolerant garden with an abundance of butterflies and birds, saltwater pool and spa, hammocks, shade trees, French Lavender maze for toddlers to learn to walk through, art studio, fire pit, fountain area, fruit orchard, outdoor dining areas… and Wi-Fi throughout. O’Leary's Cottage the most private house available, at the far end of the sandy back garden. It is not uncommon as the sun is setting that we all gather to play or chat, the park, or in the front orchard. It is a unique place and a little hard to describe, it feels a little like a village on a summer day
