Stunning fairytale home hits the market in Hollywood Hills for $5.8 million
When you think of a “story house,” you may conjure up the image of a quaint little cottage with a pointed slate roof, perhaps a charming turret, and perhaps a Juliet balcony.
What doesn’t immediately come to mind is a regal resort like this in the Hollywood Hills – mostly hidden from view from the street – which is now on the market for $5,785,000.
According to the listing agent, this is an enchanting opportunity for a buyer with a penchant for historic homes.
“From the moment you arrive you will be wowed by it all, from the stunning architecture and character to the views of the airliner,” says Denis Chernov of the Agency, which listed the house with Greg Shenon.
Chernov also notes that the privacy of the home is a huge plus.
“The two-house property is tucked away behind private gates with tall hedges and mature trees,” he says.
However, you can see the house’s characteristic slate roof and turret from the street. Both are original, dating back to when the house was built in 1937, and remain in remarkable condition. Almost a century ago, the Tudor style was king and homes were built to last.
Once you pass through the beautiful fortress-like stone walls (also original) that surround the property, you will be pleasantly surprised.
You find yourself in a quiet courtyard that features “charm brick, careful landscaping and water fountain, it’s all reminiscent of the English countryside,” says Chernov.
There is also shade provided by mature trees and beautiful landscaping that is impossible to replicate.
Chernov notes that the walls, roof and landscaping aren’t the only details that have endured over the decades.

“This estate still contains a ton of well-preserved original features and beautiful details, including stained glass windows, textured plaster walls, original fireplaces, and vaulted ceilings with exposed beams,” he says.
The main house has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four fireplaces, for a really warm atmosphere.
A cheerful kitchen has colorful tiles, a large center island and a dining bar. It opens onto a dining room and a family room with a fireplace.
Sprawling over two-thirds of an acre, the property also includes an infinity pool and spa with remarkable views, a sports court, and fruit trees.
There’s also a two-story, 1,500-square-foot freestanding guest house with a kitchen, bedroom, and living room. It could easily serve as a creative workspace, studio or media room.
To add to the living history of this unique Tudor property, the actress Katey Sagalfrom “Married… with children” and “Sons of Anarchy”, and her husband, Kurt Suttercreator of “Sons of Anarchy”, wrote his own chapters while living here more than a decade ago.
