Description

2219 Ben Lomond; pronounced "lowmund". Built in 1928, at the height of Hollywood's Golden Age, this Los Feliz Spanish-style house was one of the first on the hill, overlooking the Hollywood basin. It has panoramic city light views spanning from downtown to Century City. On clear days one can see the glittering ocean all the way to Palos Verdes. If these walls could talk, this house would have many stories to tell... Over the last 60 years it has hosted many gatherings with notable visual artists, writers, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, & dancers. A few guests include Ravi Shankar, Balasaraswati, George Harrison & the Beatles, Charles & Ray Eames, Alan Ginsberg, and Richard Neutra. The energy in the house from all the concerts, dance performances, art making, group sing parties, meditation sessions, & other activities still can be felt. Set on a quiet highly desirable street, one enters the property through gates into a private sunny courtyard oasis. The main level features, a formal entrance, an extra-large entertainer's living room with decorative fireplace & coved ceilings, formal dining room with curved window wall, breakfast nook, detailed period kitchen, & a private outdoor sun deck ideal to relax & enjoy the view or the gentle sea breeze that blows most days in the late afternoon. A spacious primary bedroom, 2 vintage bathrooms, & 2 additional bedrooms complete this level. A huge lower level, connected to the main level by a beautiful interior staircase (can be used as a separate lower 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit w/ separate entrance), has been used as an art/photo studio, with high ceilings, plenty of light, & French doors that open out to a sizeable, covered patio & private grassy yard & garden. A tucked away room has served as an additional guest bedroom, with access to its own garden outside. A separate building structure (once a garage and may have potential as an additional dwelling unit (ADU)) is currently used as a workshop and features another room below that has been utilized as guest bedroom. The property is an 8 minute stroll to miles of hiking & bicycling trails in Griffith Park, not far from the Greek Theater & the Iconic Observatory. Stroll down to the Los Feliz village on Hillhurst Avenue, lined with restaurants, markets, boutiques, and plenty of people watching. Bring your unique design vision and tender loving care to elevate to perfection this extraordinary, rare offering.
