“The word I use to define the home is irreplaceable,” says Max Nelson of The Agency, who is listing this luxe, Montecito-style compound in West Hollywood for $23 million. “It’s a true one-of-a-kind; there’s nothing like it in the entire city.”
In addition to its oasis-like setting in the heart of one of L.A.’s most vibrant neighborhoods—just moments from the city’s best shops, restaurants, galleries and entertainment—the warm and welcoming property offers four separate structures providing just under 10,000 square feet of cohesive living space, along with a sprawling, lushly landscaped plot of terra firma that features a peek at the storied neon Hollywood sign in the distance.
“One of the most unique elements to the property is the double-lot element and the expanse of the grounds,” adds Nelson. “The compound site is approximately twice the size of the next largest lot in the area…no other residential property in WeHo offers this experience.”
Situated at 948 N. Orlando Ave., on a highly desirable street with views of the Hollywood Hills, the gated residence was newly revitalized in 2018 by designer and current owner Morgan Brown, replete with a duo of single-family residences, guest house, and gym.
Among the highlights: eight bedrooms and 10 baths, as well as a “custom screening room that stands out based on the materials chosen and overall vibe,” says Nelson, “and a gym that has a real vintage feel to it that you don’t see every day.”
Yet other show-stopping details include extraordinary, custom handmade steel windows, designer lighting and soaring beamed ceilings throughout, along with an intriguing stone-encased den ideal for relaxing.
Outdoors, the magical park-like grounds are dotted with mature olive trees, multiple fountains and al fresco dining areas, fire pits, a lap pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, and last but definitely not least, a professional skate park.
