Good news, creative types—you still have a few days to polish and submit that application to MacDowell for next year’s residency. But if you blow the deadline, you may want to check out this bucolic compound in the Hollywood Hills, which looks to have excellent potential as a micro artists/writers colony.

Located on Hillcrest Road about a mile north of Franklin Avenue, the gated property contains two rustic 1930s cabins on its 5,492-square-foot lot.

The larger of the two, measuring approximately 1,100 square feet, has two bedrooms, one bath, an office, and a music room, while the smaller guesthouse has one bedroom, two baths, an open plan living room/kitchen, a sun room, and a laundry room.

Both cabins feature beamed ceilings, brick fireplaces, hardwood and tile floors, clawfoot tubs, redwood paneling, and modernized-if-extremely-compact kitchens.

Copious windows, French doors, and decks offer nonstop connection to nature, while the property’s trees, ponds, and waterfalls help reinforce the illusion of rural remoteness.

Last sold in 2003 for $537,000, it’s now asking $1.395 million.
