Per the Listing: "Significant reduction! This grand Mediterranean villa bordering Griffith Park is located on one of the most storied streets in all of the Oaks. Past an impressive facade resides a creative enclave, with inspiring views of towering pines, Griffith Observatory and city lights, and original details from the 1920's evoking an artist's soul. Select updates including a bespoke and hand-crafted kitchen along with an expanded Master suite with over-sized closet and bath. The main floor maintains circular flow with impressive entry, formal dining room, large den, living room, and separate study. Upstairs includes 4 bedrooms, each occupying its own corner of the house to maximize privacy and views. Terraced and lush on a street-to-street lot, the grounds are meant to be enjoyed with a swimmer's pool, and 500 sf detached guest house with separate access (not included in sf). Truly for the creative class, this is a rare opportunity to own a generational home in a highly sought after location."

Perched atop a hillside along the Fern Dell Drive entrance of Griffith Park, this rambling residence is indeed blessed with breathtaking views. Unfortunately, it's also cursed with traffic noise from nearby Los Feliz Blvd. On the market for 20 days, it got a hefty chop from its ambitious initial asking price of $3.2 million on April 6.
