Olesen, this Hollywood one-of-a-kind grande dame features dramatic scale and design in every room, with hillside views reminiscent of a Tuscan Villa.

Formal dining room accommodates large group entertaining and dining, and features large French doors which open up to a lovely garden with decorative orange tree (to make your exotic homegrown cocktails). Retro tiled kitchen has tall wood and glass cupboards, breakfast bar and dinette area which opens to a rear dining patio. Upper level offers two spacious master suites, each with beautifully coved ceilings, colorful vintage tile bathrooms and walk-in closet. Adjacent wood paneled sitting room off west wing master ideal for media or library. Another room off second master with closet and wrap around windows could be nursery/child’s bedroom. Three car garage with high ceilings, cement floors and extensive storage has been used as a graphic arts studio but has multipurpose potential as part garage, office, gym, yoga studio or workshop. Great for auto enthusiasts, artists or work-at-home professional. An exquisitely gorgeous home ideally situated near studios, transportation and entertainment.
