Tropical paradise in Glassell Park! Located at the top of Glassel Park with over 5800 square feet of exotic, jungle-esque grounds. Stone & pebble pathways lead to multiple sitting nooks & hidden decks, all under a lush canopy of greenery. This is a yard like no other - with a whole other eco-system than what you're used to in LA. Relax, kick up your feet & watch the humming birds and butterflies flutter by. Or, entertain on the many multi-tiered decks surrounding this charming 1920's home with a fabulous indoor/outdoor flow. The home has more of a mid-century feel & layout on the inside - open floor plan with lots of windows and glass doors leading out to the front, side & back yards, & high pitched ceilings with exposed beams. Three bedrooms & two bathrooms, a green house, laundry & central ac/heat.
They key will be left for the front door left inside the mail box or in the lock box. Please be sure to lock up all other doors as this house has a lot of indoor / outdoor spaces! There is a washer and dryer in the downstairs hallway that you may use. Please just clean the lint trap! ;) Detergent is above the washer and dryer sheets are above the dryer. If you're planning on an extended stay, please be courteous and buy your own supplies to use.
I am in LA sometimes, and traveling others. If I am in town I will greet you and give you the keys and give you a walk through, if I'm not in town we will make arrangements.
I am very responsive and able to answer your questions.
A few notes: please always cover the hot tub after use. Do not go in it dirty or Unshowered. Be respectful of the neighbors. No parties. No more than 5 people without permission.
I do have someone who comes by to get my mail and check on the house when I am out of town. They are family friends named Victor and Rosa, you may meet one or both of them. I recycle as well so please recycle too! The blue bin in the front of the house is for recycling. Garbage day is Tuesdays, so if you could be so kind as to close the bins after the City comes to empty them that would be most helpful. Otherwise they remain open until we close them. The Gardner comes on Wednesday.
Welcome home! Enjoy the creative spaces! I hope everyone comes and experiences the joy and sanctuary that is the soul of this home. It really is a special place. Please no shoes in the house and tidy up after yourself as well. On check out day: Please put all dishes in the dishwasher (press start if more than half a load is ready to be cleaned), or put clean dishes away in cupboards. Put all sheets, towels and pillowcases in the wash machine, wash on normal wash, put detergent in dispenser and press Power ON and Start. Please make sure that the house is as close to how you found it as possible. If you have a dog or children please clean up as much as possible after them, the vacuum and swiffer is accessible at all times. If it is going to rain, please put outside cushions away in the greenhouse before they get wet (if you know it is going to rain that is! ;0) I recycle, so please recycle in the blue bin out front. Also Garbage comes on Tuesday morning and the Gardner comes on Wednesday morning. From time to time, I or my family may come to check on the house and make repairs or work on the home or yard. I will give notice before any visits. Special pricing applies to parties or filming so please send me a request and let me know what you have in mind and we can work something out.
