Hollywood Hills / Sunset Strip

Residents in the Hollywood Hills enjoy close proximity to the famous Sunset Strip, a stretch on Sunset Boulevard filled with renowned restaurants, nightclubs, bars and hotels like Chateau Marmont, The Standard, Mondrian and the newly redone Argyle Hotel now renamed Sunset Tower Hotel.  The boulevard is mesmerizing with edgy billboards one after another, bright lights and legendary rock venues where bands made their break in the ‘60s and ‘70s, like the famed Viper Room, Roxy, Whiskey A Go Go and House of Blues.

The proximity to the studios and other entertainment venues make Hollywood the place to live for people in the entertainment and music business or for those who enjoy the quintessential “Los Angeles” experience.  Furthermore, many residents enjoy being owners of Hollywood history, homes once belonging to the pioneers of the entertainment industry.  Residents cherish privacy, a glamorous lifestyle, the ability to entertain in their homes, views of the city, and the feeling of being tucked away in the hills while being just minutes from the lively city.   Some renowned residential streets include Sunset Plaza Drive, Doheny Drive, and Kings Road.  There are several neighborhoods that together make up “Hollywood,” each offering its own allure.

Bordering Beverly Hills and north of Sunset Boulevard is an exclusive community called the “Bird Streets,” a neighborhood with streets named after birds like Thrasher, Mockingbird, Nightingale and Oriole.  The homes in this neighborhood tend to be expensive as they offer the most explosive views.

Residents who seek a luxurious lifestyle in a full service building with views opt for the prestigious Sierra Towers, a condominium building just above the Strip.  To the east of Sunset Strip off of Laurel Canyon is another coveted area known as Mount Olympus.  Moving east of Mount Olympus above Hollywood Boulevard are bordering neighborhoods called Outpost Estates and Nichols Canyon, offering a more rustic living environment.  Residents relish the serene and tranquil ambience and many enjoy the close proximity to Runyon Canyon Park with its hiking trails, gorgeous views of Los Angeles and the Griffith Observatory.

Moving further east is Beachwood Canyon, a neighborhood framed by the Hollywood sign.  Beachwood offers a relaxed and hip vibe where locals enjoy walking to the small grocery store and coffee shops nestled in the hills yet also are in close proximity to tourist attractions and nightlife along Hollywood Boulevard like Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, Kodak Theatre, El Capitan Theatre and the Roosevelt and W Hotels.  Just north of Hollywood Boulevard is the Magic Castle with reservations by invitation only, the picturesque Japanese restaurant Yamashiro, and the world-famous Hollywood Bowl amphitheatre.
