Onetime Residence of Nathanael West in the Hollywood Hills Asking $1.1 Million

Open House: Sunday Dec 20 between 1 - 4 PM 6614 Cahuenga Terrace, Hollywood

Price: $1,099,000
Beds, Baths: 2 BR, 2 BA
Floor Area: 1,339 sq. ft.
Per the Listing: "Experience the allure of old Hollywood! Set behind privacy gates, this classic 1924 Hollywood Hills residence, once home to writer Nathanael West is filled with great architectural details and modern updates. 2 Beds, 2 baths plus separate 1+1 guest quarters. Inspired living room, formal dining, chef's kitchen, floor-to-ceiling French doors open to spacious patio for effortless party flow. Close proximity to Hollywood Bowl, Lake Hollywood, hiking, restaurants, ArcLight Hollywood, Pantages, Metro Red Line, and Sunday farmer's market."

According to Nathanael West biographer Joe Woodward, the Day of the Locust author—who died in a car wreck almost exactly 75 years ago at the age of 37—lived in this Cahuenga Terrace residence briefly during the late 1930s. Apart from that association, probably the most "Old Hollywood" thing about this place is that mature pine (?) tree out front, which admittedly is pretty impressive. Per public records, the 5,815-square-foot property last changed hands in 2006 for $935,000.
