Open House: Sunday, Dec. 8 from 1pm – 4pm
Idyllic location meets Rock n’ Roll history meets private 1920’s romantic Spanish revival! 2522 Verbena Drive is a lush 3-bedroom/2-bath oasis on over a 9,500-square-foot lot offering panoramic Hollywood Hills views, peekaboo Hollywood sign views, architectural detail, space and charm. Hand-painted tiles elegantly adorn arched columns that embrace one of the many outdoor spaces, perfect for large but intimate dinner parties.
The living room offers expansive coved ceilings, recessed lighting, a decorative fireplace with wooden mantle and tile inlay, plus large and classic Spanish arched windows that bring the serene outdoors in. The formal dining room boasts more incredible windows with views of the hills, leaded glass and an ample built-in wet bar and serving station. An updated and sizeable kitchen offers Spanish tiles, sub zero and Viking stainless steel appliances, an apron sink, an eat-in breakfast nook enveloped by windows, built-in storage, and washer/dryer hookups. Off the kitchen is another al fresco entertaining deck and patio, perfect for afternoon barbecues and lounging in the sun. A hot tub sits magically under a canopy of Angel’s trumpets, Birds of Paradise, and a blooming avocado tree.
The enormous master bedroom includes a large walk-in closet and bath en suite and separate glass shower and spa-like tub for two. Dark wood-framed French doors open up to a columned courtyard. The gracious second bedroom has its own walk-in closet, and is inviting with glass French doors leading to its own private outdoor sitting area, a perfect place for peacefully sipping coffee in the morning. The second bathroom has a Jack and Jill entry, and an ample glass shower with simple and tasteful mosaic tiles. The hallways are light and bright with illuminating skylights and an arched display alcove. A powder room off the hallway boasts a deep floating sink and a fresh aesthetic. There is a versatile office/optional third bedroom that could also convert effortlessly into a nursery.
Bohemian and eclectic touches inspire a classic and legendary home. A two-car garage and enchanted entry welcome you to your Hollywood Hills retreat. Formerly owned by Jim Morrison’s manager – legend has it the iconic lead singer of The Doors once went crashing through one of the enormous arched living room windows (http://www.uncut.co.uk/the-doors/the-doors-la-woman-and-jim-morrison-s-tipping-point-feature)!
