LA Weekly's 'The Best Place to Pretend You're a Celebrity for a Day". This sumptuous, cozy and elegant GUEST HOUSE is like a private spa suite at a five star hotel, except that you have the hotel to yourself! Bright, sunny and spacious, the GUEST HOUSE overlooks a huge, private, 8' deep emerald tiled swimming pool to views of the downtown Los Angeles skyline, rolling yellow hills to the east and city lights. You will be surrounded by the lush garden grounds of an enchanting and historic, 1927 Old Hollywood, Los Feliz Hills estate that rests high upon 15' castle walls all around. One of the most filmed and photographed locations in Hollywood. Used often as a "Italian Villa" in films. Located in central Los Angeles near to Griffith Park and the Griffith Observatory. Walking distance to the Greek Theater. Views are reminiscent of Tuscany looking east from bed. Enjoy the number one rated Acqua di Parma hotel amenities and deluxe Italian linens by Rivolta Carmignani. Truly the finest luxury accommodations in Los Angeles. Totally private, peaceful and tranquil. Secluded in the exclusive, celebrity filled Los Feliz Hills neighborhood. Mountains and Ocean visible from property. Located on a small, hidden cul de sac for added privacy. Luxurious and private, this Hollywood Hills designer GUEST HOUSE was built in 2005. It does not get any better than this. Sublime and surreal. Magical
