Probate Sale! Court confirmation is not required. This spacious four-bedroom, five-bath home in the upscale Mt. Olympus neighborhood of Hollywood Hills harkens back to a mid-century Japanese estate with emphasis on natural light, breathtaking views, and open space for gardens. Its single-story floorplan maximizes space at every turn with each room flowing into a central hallway, and most rooms also leading outdoors. A centrally-located, enclosed courtyard sits at the center of this home, behind the roomy, three-car garage, creating outdoor space for a private garden off the interior rooms. The courtyard offers access to three areas of the house: the front hall, off of main gated entrance, and the living and dining rooms, joining each area of the house together. Two fireplaces grace this home, creating added warmth, and most rooms also have temperature controls. There is also an intercom system wired throughout the house.
While a breakfast nook offers splendid views of the back patio, what is most amazing is the chef-quality kitchen where floor-to-ceiling, wood-paneled cabinets line every wall. Built-in’s include a refrigerator/freezer; double-dutch oven; two, side-by-side dish washers; a trash compactor; a three-sided spice cabinet; and ample counter space with a long ceramic-tiled island at the center. Here you’ll find a second sink, a second stovetop with four burners and an electric wok, and a food warmer making cooking an art form. In addition to its three guest bedrooms, each with an adjacent bathroom, the master suite features an extra-large bedroom, a roomy dressing area with a double, marble vanity, two walk-in closets, and a bathroom with a soaking tub, shower, and men and women’s toilets. This lovely home is just minutes from world-class restaurants, entertainment, and retail stores, providing a one-of-a-kind haven for creative souls.
