Now entering the canyon
Just beyond the glow of Tinseltown lies the Hollywood Hills, where homes peek curiously from behind vined walls, and roads snake intricately in between. And down a sweet brick path beyond lots of lush greenery is where you’ll find Kirkwood Drive II, a cosy, cottage-like home of fairytale proportions. While cooler days might be best spent in front of the painted brick hearth, warmer days bring a trickier choice: will you recline on the shaded front porch, or dine al fresco at the patio’s glass-topped dining table? And when the sparkle of the city calls, it’s a mere two miles to the heart of West Hollywood, where alluring clubs and restaurants abound.
Your host is a writer and critic who splits his time between LA and New York City. When in LA, he finds the peace and quiet of Kirkwood Drive to be just the right amount of soothing.
##Where the wild things are
After tucking into cosmopolitan fare on Sunset Boulevard, the pretty, private hedges surrounding Kirkwood Drive make for a welcome return. As will the sitting room’s cheerful bearded gnome and plentiful stacks of books.
Here you might retell the day’s adventures while settled into a weathered leather armchair, or head instead to the red wicker chairs of the rustic dining table. And though nobody could deny the cosy master bedroom’s charm, let the garden’s bougainvillea and fruit trees enchant you before you drift off.
