Or, life in the woods
When two roads diverge in a wood, which do you take? Perhaps the one leading to this peaceful home in a secluded swath of The Hill. Pensive brick-and-beam architecture is ornamented with furnishings and décor blending rustic elements with the cool contemporary – like the chunky oak-framed windows, and the sleek chrome kitchen. You’ve plenty of spots for quiet reflection, be it at the impressive brick-and-stone fireplace, on the sunlit back balcony, or perched atop one of the scenic backyard viewpoints overlooking the city. Yet minutes’ drive from the Sunset Strip, there’s much to entertain beyond your perimeter too.

The book-laden second bedroom doubles as an office, perfect for turning pages, or for more active pleasures you’re close to the revitalising hiking opportunities of Laurel Canyon.
