Splurge: 1933 Hollywood Hills Treasure With Guest House And Recording Studio for $2.985M

Ideally situated on over half-an-acre, this Hollywood Hills stunner shines! It was previously owned by Mark Ruffalo from 2004 to 2009, and Zooey Deschanel along with her then-husband, “Death Cab for Cutie” front man Ben Gibbard, from 2009 to 2012. Now it could be yours!

The three-bedroom, three-full-and-one-half-bathroom home is a head-turner, offering magazine-quality design throughout. Among the highlights are a fantastic great room, sunroom, lush gardens, a charming guest house, and bonus for musicians, a recording studio. 

Inside the main residence, you’ll find warm and inviting interiors filled with natural light. And the chef’s kitchen is sure to turn heads! It comes richly appointed with a La Cornue stove, marble-clad counters, Granada tiles, and a built-in banquette. 

When it’s time to unwind, the master suite offers a posh place to land, wrapped in Martinique wallcovering. We love the pair of French doors that open to pergola covered patio for a tranquil retreat. Top that off with a spa-like marble bath and you’ll instantly feel at ease.

Even better, there is no shortage of outdoor space to refresh and renew. High-def security, Smart Home technology, and surround sound sweeten the deal. Don’t miss your chance to snag this Hollywood Hills treasure before it’s too late!

Steal: Dramatic 1925 Spanish Beauty In Historic Whitley Heights With Rental Suite For $1.485M

Of course, for $1.5 million less you could find yourself in this historic Spanish gem. According to the listing, the 1925 property was “once home to Otto Preminger and a few other Hollywood greats.” If only walls could talk!

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom beauty comes nestled on a private secluded lot, with high walls and a gated entry. The front courtyard sets the tone and beckons you inside where you’ll marvel at soaring ceilings, exposed beams, and gorgeous oak floors. We love the French doors that open to a covered veranda. And every corner of this home is dripping in high-design.

This includes the Carrara marble kitchen and oversized master suite. There is also an attached one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest suite with kitchen and separate entrance for those looking for rental income.

Sited just minutes from the Hollywood Bowl, this Spanish icon is in full bloom! Take a virtual tour and make your move.
