For the first time in over thirty years, this magical Hollywood Hills estate, Birdwing, is being offered for sale! Five separate lots have been combined to create this spectacular ridgetop property with panoramic city and canyon views that overlook the entire Los Angeles basin. Encompassing some of the city’s most notable landmarks, the views span from the Hollywood sign and the golden domed Griffith Observatory to the skyscrapers of downtown L.A. and the ocean to the west.
A long private and gated drive leads to the ample motor court where visitors are immediately met with the magnitude of the view beyond. It only takes a moment to understand the significance and rarity of this special property. Multiple terraces, pavilions, covered porches and thoughtful landscaping come together to create this serene retreat with palms, cycads, rose bushes, old growth pines, magnolias, cedars, and eucalyptus trees. The deep blue pool, brick patios, and covered cabana with bar and spa provide the perfect setting for lounging in utter tranquility or intimate to large scale entertaining. One of the most unique features of this Hollywood Hills property is the capacity and convenience provided for parking. At street level you will find a three car garage with workshop (potential for 4 cars) and up the driveway there is a spacious motor court plus carport parking for 2 additional cars.
The main house has the potential for 3 ensuite bedrooms (1 is currently being used as a den and the second as a dressing area) plus a cabana/ guest house with an additional bedroom and bath with sauna. The designer kitchen showcases fine cabinetry, granite countertops and custom built-ins. The formal dining room opens to the covered patio and flows to the formal living area which features soaring ceilings, a grand fireplace and large windows that frame stunning views. Upstairs, the secluded master suite opens to a private terrace with jetliner views. The converted 3rd bedroom provides ample closet space and dual baths to complete the master suite. In addition, the third floor office or study is the perfect place for quiet reflection.
Birdwing is a refuge of complete privacy and serene quietude, although it’s only minutes to the Sunset Strip to the south and Ventura Blvd. and the San Fernando Valley to the north. Between the ridgeline of Birdwing and the city beyond, lies the hills of Kirkwood and Laurel Canyon which combine with rising and setting suns and moons, fogs and mists, to create awe inspiring and dynamic vistas. There are so many special touches, custom features, and whimsical qualities that come from being lovingly developed over 30 years. The unique site makes Birdwing a trophy estate as well as an enchanting and serene retreat. Unlike anything you’ve seen before this exceptional property has so much to offer!
