Step outside to bask in the dappled sunlight of towering birds of paradise and a magnificent oak tree, where the multitude of terraces and bubbling tiled fountain create the ideal backdrop for indoor-outdoor living, dining, and entertaining. Additionally, enjoy fully paid off solar panels; a garage with direct access; and a location mere minutes from major studios, hiking trails, City Walk, Sushi Row, Burbank Airport, and coveted Valley View Elementary.
