Within the chic enclave of Whitley Heights, Hollywood’s first celebrity neighborhood, this 1923 residence with unobstructed southwest views feels part of a Tuscan village. It is believed that silent film star Clyde Cook was the original owner of the residence. Entry level yard and patio lead to the entrance to a large guest apartment or studio with beamed ceiling, full bath, bedroom, living room, kitchen and laundry (and internal stairwell to the main house). An exterior staircase with original tiles leads up to the 2-story main house with large living room with tiled fireplace, enclosed sunroom, formal dining room, modern kitchen with breakfast area, and a guest bedroom and bath. A lovely open courtyard at the rear of house flows from the main living space and provides an exceptional entertaining space adorned by bougainvillea and several trees: two palms, a fig, and a Meyer lemon. A dramatic staircase with ornate ironwork leads up to the master bedroom and bath, enclosed sitting room with 180 degree views, and second bedroom. A large deck off the master bedroom offers still more panoramic views of downtown Hollywood and the City beyond. The residence, which is close to the Hollywood Bowl via neighborhood-only private stairways, is fully gated with a large 2-car garage at street level. Whitley Heights was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and the residence is a contributor to the Whitley Heights Historic Preservation Overlay Zone.
