What’s more interesting, a story or the story behind the story? At this wonderfully chic, minimalist home high in Laurel Canyon, you may finally enjoy refreshing repose enough to answer that question for yourself, among others. Perform a study in black-and-white in the main house, or dolly down to the guest cottage where additional wonders await. The facts may speak for themselves, but the hidden comforts of this curious roost are plentiful and conveniently true.
Woman on wire
Your host is an award-winning documentary film producer, writer, and director. When not shining a light on people or issues of import, she enjoys dinner and discussion with her closest confidants, as well as multifarious international treks.
The house I live in
As the camera rolls, the brightness of this space puts its modern furnishings and white-on-white decor into vividly stark relief. Invite subject(s) to dine and lounge beneath the clean lines of the elegant open-plan area, or out onto the smart adjoining patio for extra coverage. Delve into a book or other archive material in the fabulous fireside reading nook, or cut away to the tastefully appointed master bedroom and let life happen verité. Below the main house, cosy up in the separated single-bedroom guest cottage, or descend further to a lush grassy tract whose verdant character is anything but a grey garden.
Although babies and children are welcome, this home is not suitable for toddlers.
The Master and Queen bedroom can sleep four guests comfortably but there is room for one more on the day bed in the separate studio below the home. Please note there are external stairs connecting from the back deck to this area.
There is ample unrestricted street parking around the home.
The minimum stay length for this home is five nights.
