In Hollywood, there are two notes of consequence when checking out real estate. Where the home is located (Does the neighborhood end in Hills?) and who owned it first.
As reported by Curbed LA, this former residence of singer Natalie Imbruglia, located at 9145 St. Ives Drive, is nestled on quiet stretch just above the Sunset Strip in the Hollywood Hills.
Crafted with a Mediterranean influence, this 3 level abode which just listed on Redfin, was first completed in 1954. Luckily, the home still retains the romantic Hollywood glamour of the era with a stucco exterior, flat tile roof, Cantera stone flooring, French doors in every room, a private stone patio, white-washed walls, and wooden trim. Modern additions and amenities include high-tech kitchen appliances and gadgets, a home theatre with surround sound, and several skylights.
The bedroom on the second floor has a separate entrance as does the guest quarters. 6 bathrooms means that when your siblings come to visit with kids in tow, there won’t be long lines for the shower after that trip to the beach.
The home is tagged with a $2,999,900 sticker, which frankly is a bargain considering that the home is a hop, skip and jump away from Sunset Plaza. Ole Henriksen, Café Med, and Le Petit Four within walking distance, even though no one ever walks anywhere in Los Angeles, not even down the street? You betcha!
I happened upon the listing during my daily scouring for a new home. I was almost sold until I found out the dazzling digs is without a swimming pool. Oh well. Sadly, my search continues.
