This is special - Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument #445, The Courtney Desmond Estate. Think Melrose Place meets luxury real estate. One of five unique 1926 Mediterranean villas situated around a classic old Hollywood oval-shaped pool. This townhome has the look and feel of a single family residence - with walled and gated direct entrance, private gated parking, and extensive outdoor space with multiple seating areas and an outdoor spa of in-laid Moroccan tile - but also the convenience and security of shared living. Inside, there’s a grand step-down living room, an updated open-concept kitchen with new appliances, and a curved staircase leading to a lux master suite, an additional sunny bedroom, a convertible office, and two custom baths. Nestled in a lush setting at the base of Nichols Canyon with canyon and tree-top vistas, it is just a short distance to Runyon Canyon, Hollywood studios, restaurants and nightlife. Showings subject to state and local COVID-19 guidelines.
