Just on the market, this rare, top-of-the-hill Tuscan villa style treasure in the silverlake hills is not to be missed!
Situated on over an Acre of Land at the apex of one of Silverlakes highest hills, this beautiful estate makes the most of it’s location with multiple viewing decks that take advantage of its unobstructed 360 degree views of the Los Angeles cityscape. Not only do you get breathtaking views of downtown LA, but on a clear day you can see all the way to Catalina. Look North and West to see a horizen filled with the Hollywood Hills, the San Gabriele Mountains and, at time, even Santa Monica too. We should also mention that you get the added bonus of a mountain breeze–just an added perk of hilltop living.
The last point of intrigue is the home’s impressive pedigree of previous ownership. Originally built for legendary Film Star Gloria Swanson, the estate has also been home to Mae West, and a number of other behind-the-scenes Hollywood big wigs. Although the home was recently broken up into 5 units, it’s elegant architectural frame makes it clear that this property is aching for a visionary buyer snatch it up and return it to it’s single family home glory. And with over 40,000 Sq. Ft. of buildable land in addition to the home’s current structure, there’s plenty of room to expand as well. We fell in love with this special gem as soon as we reached the hilltop, and we’re confident you will too. The listing agent recommends you bring your contractor, architect, and imagination – given the owner history, its clearly a place for dreamers, so go nuts you guys!
