This magnificent restored 1920s Spanish revival home hearkens back to the Golden Age of Hollywood, the Roaring Twenties, when luminaries like F. Scott Fitzgerald and countless celebrities made this neighborhood their stomping grounds living across from here at the legendary Garden of Allah Hotel. Here is your chance to live in this piece of paradise and walk amongst them--located at the West Hollywood gateway to the Sunset Strip, steps away from world class amenities--the Gatsby welcomes you!

Sit in the formal dining room and eat and drink on the over 100 year old antique table. Take in the view of the homes of the stars through the stain glass windows, as you sip on your favorite soft drink or a glass of wine. Cook or have someone else cook in your updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances, including a Bertazzoni stove, range, hood, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher.
Get ready to go out! Do you laundry or have someone else do it for you in the Electrolux washer and dryer. Shower or take a bath to freshen up in own of two bathrooms with luxury shampoo, conditioner, and soap from the Simplehuman dispensers. Go out on the town! Walk to everywhere on the Sunset Strip, eat, drink, grocery shop, go to CVS, all this just across the street, and much more within a couple blocks radius, or take short Uber rides to other locales, or take your own ride out on the town, or go out in style and rent the Gatsby house Porsches via Turo. When you return, find 3 generous size bedrooms with queen size beds to lay down your heads.
Rest and relax the next day, get delivery breakfast, just like room service these days, or go for a stroll to a local cafe or Starbucks or Coffee Bean. Enjoy it out in the back patio as you hear the bamboo sway in the gentle wind under the warm California sun. Or go out to the private front patio under the shade, enjoy a bite, and a beverage, as you watch and hear an exotic supercar zoom buy. You will also see tour buses with tourists who might try to peer over the hedge to catch a glimpse of you, the King or Queen and Star of this Castle, to let you know YOU have arrived, YOU have made it in Hollywood!

Is he a native of Los Angeles, did he really grow up on Laurel Canyon? Or is he an East Coast carpetbagger? Some say he went to Yale like sometime neighbor F. Scott Fitzgerald's Nick Carraway. Others say he went to UCLA film school like sometime fellow Laurel Canyon resident James Douglas Morrison. Some say he went to both, that he actually earned a Master of Fine Arts at UCLA.
Though artist he seemingly is none. A businessman is more apparent, but what business, legal or illegal? Walking a fine line between reality and fiction, the old economy and the new economy? A real estate agent, no less one who is saving a whole mountain and wildlife corridor? That's hard to believe, a generous one? Or a greedy one, only selling luxury properties?
Is he a sharing economy entrepreneur, living in a McCastle, or Castillo? As he sometimes likes to call it, in his delusional tall tales of grandeur. Driving around in a 2016 Porsche Macan S or his 2004 Porsche Boxster S 50 Years of the 550 Spyder Limited Edition, which he will share with you via Turo, really? Or is he really only supporting the sharing economy by taking Lyfts everywhere? Or both?
You choose what to believe about this man, tall tale or truth. But one thing is to be certain, you can experience it all and find out for yourself during your stay here at The Great Gatsby. Inquire Within ;)
