Our house was built in 2003. It's a warm, contemporary, clean, uncluttered, family home. Great for entertaining and sitting on the patio overlooking sunny California. There are 3 bedrooms plus a guest bedroom. The Master bedroom has a king size bed with bathroom en suite. Bedroom 2 has a queen size bed and bedroom 3 has one twin bed. The boys bedrooms share a full bathroom. The guest bedroom has two twin beds, an HD tv with DVD player and a private deck with an attached bathroom. All rooms have great views of the San Fernando Valley and San Gabriel Mountains to the north. The Kitchen is a cook's dream, fully equipped. There are 3 full and 1 half baths. Our house is fully equipped with satellite TV's, wi-fi computers, play station, wii, washer/dryer. The house is great for allergy sufferers; terrazzo and hard-wood floors throughout. Extremely low dust factor. House cleaning services available.
Our house sits on over 1 acre in the hills of Sherman Oaks, a very quiet, suburban area with custom homes and natural landscapes, overlooking the San Fernando Valley. The house is centrally located to all of Los Angeles' features. We are 1.3 miles south of Ventura Blvd. (which is the main shopping/restaurant street in the Valley). Excellent moderate priced restaurants span in both directions. The house is situated between Coldwater Cyn. (8 miles to Beverly Hills) and Beverly Glen Cyn. (8 miles to UCLA/ West LA). It's 5 miles along Ventura Blvd. to Universal Studios and the start of the metro. From there it's a short hop to Hollywood and then on to Downtown LA. It's a 15 minute drive along Mulholland Blvd to the Getty Center Museum or 20 minute drive to Santa Monica beach.
Our house sits on top of a hill which feels very secluded for being in the middle of LA. The road above our house is closed to vehicles and provides a lovely walk up the canyon to Mulholland Drive. You must have a car to navigate through LA from our house.
We are a well travelled family of four; older parents of two boys 16 and 11 years old. We've rented many homes along our travels. We have done a couple of non-simultaneous house swaps. I'm a stay at home mom (former commercial architectural designer who loves to cook), my husband is a lawyer (who loves to eat, drink wine and garden). We love to travel and the idea of house swapping and experiencing living in other lands is greatly appealing to us.
We have a large, lazy, friendly indoor/outdoor cat. He uses a cat window to go outside and there is no litter box indoors. With our house not having any carpet or drapery people with cat allergies have no problems in our house.
We insist on no smoking in our house as I have allergies to cigarette smoke.
