Certain sections of Sunset Boulevard are as cultural hems, breaks in the city’s fabric that separate the calm from the bustle. To the north, residents on the climb of the Hill find themselves serenely above the fray: to the south, the thump and clatter of the city beckons those who seek to take in as much as they can. And stitched right at the placket is this 1930s Tudor revival, whose location enables guests to freely cross the divide with engaging options in both directions. Stay in and luxuriate in its cosy, cleaned-and-pressed décor, or dip beyond the fringe to parts unknown where it’s okay to tear the occasional hem.
Your hosts meet together at the cross-grain of contemporary entertainment, as one represents writers while the other directs digital distribution. But beyond the media pipeline, it is a shared enjoyment of outfitting their dwelling and a deep
affection for each other that truly binds them together.
A perfect fit
Once up the path and through the front door, Tudor-style touches line the whole of the buttoned-down interior, from arched door frames to the great hall sitting room, featuring a brick-laid hearth for fireside chats and a stained-glass coat-of-arms crest delicately embroidered within larger glass frontage. Several other rooms are also adorned with signature Tudor revival bay windows, including the steel and tile-topped kitchen and post and beam-inspired dining room, where a brass ornamental chandelier shines a light by night. The bedrooms are politely dressed with window curtains and shades fine as medieval tapestry – easily your hosts’ pride by far – and other modern upholstered pieces, including a leather-bound aquamarine footrest. And completing the pattern is a gorgeous and grill-ready dry laid flagstone patio, with cushioned seating to entertain and a swatch of an upper garden for young ones to dally in the sun.
Bursting at the seams
Don’t get your sleeve caught in the door en route to a plethora of offerings for authentic Hollywood luxury and comfort. The eponymous Sunset Plaza is nearby for splendid shopping, or you might rub shoulders with locals at Mel’s Drive-In and test your waistband with a famous black and white milkshake. Though this pocket of LA is far from square, a car enables travels beyond.
