Cool Mid-Century in Lake Hollywood Area of Hollywood Hills Under $840K

Check out this great looking mid-century home in the Lake Hollywood area of the Hollywood Hills just listed this week. This is a good value at $839K in this location on a nicely updated home. The property has nice curb appeal and an open floor plan. I personally love the high ceilings and the very cool floating staircase. With remodeled baths and an updated chef's kitchen, and light hardwood flooring in this location close to all the studios, this would definitely be worth taking a look at if you are in the market for a home this style. The home has a fair amount of outdoor space with a relaxing patio downstairs and a large deck out to peaceful canyon views upstairs.

Rocker Chic Hollywood Hills Hideaway

This home is a bit different then the ones that normally catch my eye, but something about the funkiness grabbed me. This is a very chic home with a nod to the bohemian aesthetic. Lying in a great Hollywood Hills location by the Hollywood Bowl, this property is incredibly private as it is hidden behind lush foliage. A ton of designer details include Chinoiserie silk wallpaper in the dining room, antique mirrored and lacquered walls in the living room, and gold-leaf ceilings in the master bedrooom. An updated kitchen with Carrara marble countertops, and high end appliances like Miele & Sub-Zero. Great indoor outdoor flow with dramatic outdoor space that includes a 7' grotto and outdoor shower. There is also a one bed guest apartment with full kitchen and bath. A very unique property indeed.

A Stroll Down Cahuenga; Hollywood

Hollywood has undergone a ton of new development in the past several years, and nowhere is that more apparent then Cahuenga Blvd. It has become a new shopping district with nice restaurants, a new outdoor mall, nightclubs, and lofts. I recently walked to meet with friends for drinks and took along my camera to capture some of Cahuenga's best spots. ECCO LOUNGE & BEAUTY BAR

Heidi & Spencer's 'The Hills' House Available For Lease

Fans of MTV's "The Hills" probably recognize this remodeled post and beam home as Heidi and Spencer's home on the show. While some may consider that a positive and others maybe not, it is a great looking home. You can now live there as well, as it just hit the market for lease.

The Sunset & Vine Tower; Hollywood's Tallest Building

I recently showed Hollywood's newest and tallest tower to a client, The Sunset & Vine Tower.

Lying at the corner of Sunset & Vine (you could probably guess that by the name) is CIM Group's newest project. Purchased in 2003, this building has undergone a complete renovation under the direction of Kanner Architects http://www.kannerarch.com/en/ . They did a great job, as the building is a great mix of exposed industrial elements but refined with drop down smooth ceilings, floor to ceiling walls of glass looking out to explosive views, and open loft like floor plans but with real bedrooms (a miss in the LA market in my opinion). Built to the highest condo specifications, the property is currently being leased as luxury apartments.

New Apts Coming to Hollywood

In the next few month's there could potentially be thousands of new residents and visitors flocking to Hollywood to either stay at the new W hotel or call the area home, as multiple new apartment buildings are coming. I have previously posted a picture of the apartments at 1600 Vine, and now here is a look at the construction activity of two more apartments underway just north of Hollywood Blvd & East of Highland. Here is also a first look at the stucco exterior of the one closes to Highland, Jefferson at Hollywood.

Tale of Two Sides The 6600 Block of Hollywood Blvd

As Hollywood continues to grow and redevelop I thought it would be interesting to show the transition process. This transition is clearly prevalent in the differences of the type of restaurants, stores, and entertainment venues that reside on the north side of the 6600 block of famed Hollywood Blvd. versus those on south side of the street. Besides Kress (restaurant & nightclub), there are really no name brand stores or modern upscale venues on the south side, but instead the buildings are still occupied by an abundance of tattoo shops, smoke shops, costume stores, and other "mom and pop" retail spots. This is in contrast to the north side, which is flourishing with several newer high end restaurants, name brand retailers, & modern updated architecture. North Side of the Streeet

Hollywood & Vine Expansion Pictures

Just a few of the pictures I took today of the Sunset/Hollywood & Vine area of booming Hollywood to visually represent previous posts about the area's rise. This is obviously just a snapshot of a small area, and I will have more of new shopping on Cahuenga, new loft buildings, hotels, and more soon. I live in and around this area, so shooting in Hollywood is easy. [flickr size="small" float="left"]http://www.flickr.com/photos/42659427@N02/4207472826/[/flickr]
